Equipment Performance Testing

Finely Tuned Processes are the Secret to Reliability

More than 6 million Michiganders depend on us for reliable, safe and efficient electricity and natural gas service. Our Equipment Performance Testing team helps make that happen. We are experts in combustion, heat rate, power plant performance and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR). We keep our generating plants finely tuned, and operating at peak performance. Our capabilities include coal, natural gas and oil powered generating fleets. Read more about our services by clicking the arrows below.
