There are hosts of advantages to consider when deciding between traditional and prefabricated electrical assemblies.
Prefabricated assemblies are factory constructed and electrical equipment wired and tested to minimize on-site labor 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 jobsite.
- Streamlined power system component integration, commissioning and testing
With start-up and commissioning test plans are 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 transportation 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 U.S. according to IRS publication 946. Prefabricated assemblies can be depreciated in 7 years compared to 39 years for equipment installed in facility
