There are hosts of advantages to consider when deciding between traditional and prefabricated electrical assemblies.
Prefabricated assemblies are factory constructed, with electrical equipment wired and tested to minimise on-site labour costs, quality issues and time.
- Simplified project management
Prefabricated assemblies can significantly reduce the potential impact of various equipment delivery schedules and multiple construction trades accessing the worksite.
- Streamlined power system component integration, commissioning and testing
With start-up and commissioning test plans being combined with in-depth factory testing, prefabricated electrical assemblies arrive ready to manage all anticipated normal and emergency operating conditions.
- Reduced physical footprint
Each assembly is engineered to use as little space as possible while meeting unique application needs. Most solutions can fit on a platform or trailer, making transport and space requirements manageable.
Unlike traditional construction, prefabricated electrical assemblies offer a flexible, expandable design that can be connected to additional units to meet changing needs.
- Accelerated asset depreciation
Prefabricated assemblies can be depreciated faster than traditional brick and mortar builds in the USA, according to IRS publication 946. Prefabricated assemblies can be depreciated in seven years, compared to 39 years for equipment installed in the facility
