DEVENS, Mass. -- AMSC (AMSC), a global energy solutions provider serving wind and power grid industry leaders, is pleased to announce that Electrical Consultants, Inc. (ECI) of Billings, Montana, is now a certified installer of AMSC’s Resilient Electric Grid (REG) solutions in the United States. This announcement is an expansion to AMSC’s existing strategic relationship in which ECI has performed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to over a dozen projects with AMSC’s grid products. As AMSC accepts turnkey REG projects as prime contractor to U.S. utilities, having proven EPC capabilities will facilitate smooth construction and installation of the product. ECI further enables AMSC to offer REG solutions to a potentially broader customer base and establishes additional channels to market in North America.

“ECI’s broad support, extensive industry experience and superior service to AMSC over the past years is expected to enable us to target additional channels for REG solutions in North America, especially in the Western States,” said Daniel P. McGahn, President and Chief Executive Officer of AMSC. “We have the highest respect for Dick McComish, President and Chief Executive Officer of ECI, and his team, and look forward to working with them to add value for our utility customers.”

ECI is one of the country’s leading Transmission & Distribution (T&D) consulting design firms and one of the largest specialty Engineer-Procure-Construct companies in the United States. AMSC has closely worked with ECI on over a dozen grid projects in the U.S. and believes ECI will enhance the AMSC team that provides REG solutions to the North American market.

“We believe AMSC’s REG solutions have the potential to provide unique value to electric utilities,” said McComish. “AMSC’s REG solutions are cost-effective with minimal environmental impact. We are excited to advance our relationship with AMSC to help execute these projects.”

AMSC’s REG system solution is an innovative approach to the power distribution system that increases reliability and capacity of the electric grid. By enabling the use of transmission and distribution assets in a way that is not feasible with traditional technologies, the REG system enables significant increases in grid reliability and load-serving capacity, while limiting the need for additional grid infrastructure, which mitigates environmental impact.

As a certified installer of REG solutions, ECI is expected to provide civil, electrical and mechanical engineering services as well as project management, procurement and construction services to support AMSC’s REG projects. Aspects of projects that are expected to be supported by ECI include substation construction and modifications, installation of cable duct and ancillary equipment, including cooling systems, in addition to related engineering.

AMSC and ECI’s relationship is non-exclusive and AMSC continues to work to qualify other EPC companies as certified installers of REG solutions in order to offer the market multiple approaches.
