Consultation & Solution Design

Back-up Power Consultation

McLennan Power Consulting Engineers are available for a free consultation to rapidly provide a high level power continuity solution design, cost estimate and assist with business case qualification. Contact Us today to discuss your requirements.

McLennan Power understands how the Power Continuity business case relates to the various market segments. We can help qualify and document your business case at conception and our project managers take responsibility for the project right up to completion, commissioning and handover to operations.

McLennan Power design principles are:

  • Functionality - understand the functional requirements, document them, design to them and make sure they are delivered - obvious, but not that common in practice.
  • Scalability and flexibility - understand what is likely to happen tomorrow in the way of growth or change so that an optimal degree of flexibility and scalability is built in at the start to avoid costly upgrades or changes if they are likely, but without unnecessarily over engineering.
  • Risk Profile - every organisation has a different service level expectation and appetite for risk. Reducing risk becomes exponentially more costly as you approach 0%. By clearly understanding the service level and risk expectations, our customers are able to achieve a solution TCO that suits their business model and then manage their risks accordingly.
  • Interoperability, Synergies and Conflicts - no projects occur in a vacuum; as far as possible we try to understand the complexities of an environment to ensure that solutions leverage the synergies that exist or resolve the complexities and conflicts with other projects or technologies in situ.
  • Localisation and Supportability - What is best in one scenario is not always best for everyone. We ensure that any solution is suited to local conditions and locally supportable, since ongoing support is as important to the success of a project as design integrity.
  • Existing Investment - Organisations often have investment in existing skills, technologies and people. We leverage these investments in our solutions to reduce costs.
  • Total Cost of Ownership - Every organisation has a different approach to Capital and Operational spend and budgets to go with it. McLennan Power will work with you to achieve the optimal mix of capital and ongoing operational cost of a solution to suit your specific spending profile.
  • Compliance - Compliance requirements, whether environmental, labour, organisational or governmental standards are an integral part of a power continuity solution. Our architects design with full consideration of these requirements, but more importantly, our experience helps us navigate these complex channels smoothly, saving you money.
  • Priority - All the items above are relevant to a solution, but some will have greater significance than others for a given organisation. We will work with you to ensure that the costs inherent in a solution are overtly prioritised according to your specific needs.
