The Sauer Scoop

Top US Power Companies use Sauer Compressors for Storm Surge Emergencies


Author: Crystal Wilson

As the weather warms up, the potential for summer storms increases. Widespread outages along the East and Gulf Coast remain high in the warmer months, and exposure is expected to grow. Now is the time to protect your facilities from the possibility of a devastating impact from a storm surge. In response to the outages and mayhem that ensued after recent tropical storms, some power providers along the East Coast began making their infrastructure more resilient to storm surge flooding. Adding more protective measures such as natural and artificial buffers, elevating critical infrastructure, and shutting down or moving facilities away from the coastline are adequate precautions but often not cost-prohibitive.

The best way to stay safe and productive during an emergency weather situation is to be proactive and prepared. First, check and repair all critical equipment for your operation. It’s never a bad idea to have extra spare parts on hand. Unfortunately, no matter how prepared you are, there is no sure-fire way to determine the extent of a summer storm surge or an unexpected failure in your operation.

That’s why it is essential to include the possibility of rental equipment in your contingency plan. The Sauer Compressors USA rental team’s primary goal is to provide peace of mind in emergencies.
