Electric Utilities

 

Aging assets are at an ever-increasing risk of corrosion and metal loss leading to failure and costly replacement. At the heart of the power grid are transmission, distribution and substation poles, towers and lattice structures nearing forty plus years of service. Additionally, there is the risk of aging steel guy wires and anchor rods that play a critical role in supporting these structures.  It is imperative to enlist the services of a trusted partner now to help manage this inherent risk. MATCO is that partner.

MATCO understands the unique requirements of the electric utility industry to ensure that these critical assets are safe and reliable. Our expertise in steel, concrete, stainless steel and aluminum substrates teamed with our NACE, ASCE, IEEE and CEATI testing standards provides comprehensive, single source solutions for your asset security. 

Our on-site field evaluations are performed by engineers and technicians certified by the NACE and trained in highly advanced protocols developed by Dr. Zee, a well-recognized expert in corrosion and materials engineering.  Our field crews perform field tests and expert observations and coordinate with our team of expert engineers to identify trends, develop conclusions and make recommendations to extend service life. For information about how MATCO can become your partner, contact us today.
