EPSS All-Hazards Risk Assessments

Build confidence that your current emergency power supply system (EPSS) will operate when disaster strikes.

MGI’s All Hazards Risk Assessments (AHRA) and identification of potential single points of failure eliminate doubt.

  • We review all protocols for operations compliance to NFPA, CMS, and all other applicable standards and codes including the Final Rule (42 CFR 482.15)
  • We issue a preliminary report identifying needed protocol modifications, corrective actions, equipment replacement, commissioning, and decommissioning with estimated budgets.
  • We review the report with all stakeholders.

EPSS Decommissioning Services

Conserving Your Investment

Motor and Generator Institute (MGI) has helped clients find new owners for over 250MW of decommissioned generators and switchgear since 2001. We’ve found that selling EPSS equipment while it is still in use garners a premium price (as much as double), reassuring potential buyers of its working condition. Therefore, we typically recommend advertising equipment for sale before removal.

Brokering on your behalf, we obtain a written offer and signed contract, unburdening sellers from difficult haggling and uncomfortable conversations with equipment dealers. Thinking about decommissioning your EPSS equipment?  Let’s start a conversation.
