Power and Energy Failure Analysis and Forensic Investigation

Energy_Turbine Failure.jpeg

All forms of energy production are highly complex and technical, and millions of individuals and businesses rely on power and energy every day. Energy/utility accidents can have severe consequences and high financial impacts, especially when critical machinery and operations come to a halt. Therefore, you need a fast and knowledgeable response from an experienced engineer or consultant when you have an energy loss or a high-impact problem. Our engineers and consultants understand all facets of the industry and ask the right questions, putting these complex situations into perspective and providing you with an economic and sound solution or opinion, quickly.

Envista's global network of experts have knowledge of power generation design, installation, operations, and maintenance, and use this expertise during their investigations. We investigate losses that include:

  • Fossil fuels
  • Combined cycle and independent power plants (IPPs)
  • Gas and steam turbines
  • Hydroelectric
  • Renewables
  • Solar
  • Biomass
  • Nuclear

Envista's energy experts have in-depth knowledge and experience responding to failures involving transmission and distribution equipment, control systems, boilers, pressure vessels, switchgear, and many other energy production components. We are able to provide forensic analysis on claims related to first-party property damage, third-party liability, Construction All Risk, and others. Also, Envista is aware of the unique impacts that COVID-19 has had on the Power and Energy industry and can navigate and mitigate the potential risks involved.

On-Site Examinations

Our team of experts perform on-site and remote investigations as required, gathering critical evidence and information, preventing it from being lost in recovery operations. Being a highly collaborative multidisciplinary team, Envista has the right experts to work through unique technical issues and give you the best results.

We perform Root Cause Analysis, determine the extent of damage, evaluate various mitigation options, help minimize business interruption issues, and identify/preserve evidence for potential subrogation/third-party liability action. Envista engineers work closely with all involved parties, including claim adjusters, policyholders, service providers, and manufacturers, to deliver complete technical opinions and solutions for the project.
