Planned Maintenance Programmes

A planned maintenance programme (PMP) is the most logical and cost effective way of maintaining the resiliency and efficiency of your network. Regular inspections coupled by Ipsum’s digital asset management technology allows you to identify faulty assets quickly, with the ability to make informed remedial decisions based on comprehensive asset intelligence.

We strive to deliver a proactive, customer-focused response to any issues detected during asset inspections. Additionally, we escalate and schedule any significant maintenance tasks that cannot be handled during routine maintenance.

Don’t leave your network vulnerable when Ipsum are on-hand to support you.

Ipsum provides integrated LV, HV and EHV infrastructure maintenance to over 2,500 national customers, with an average yearly growth rate of 200+ new sites.

We offer two types of contract … The first is an ‘operate and maintain’ contract which focusses on sites without and HV Authorised Person. The second from of contract is entirely maintenance-based, with customer sites often having its own HV Authorised Person. Both contracts include annual visual inspections and a 24/7/365 reactive response to faults and emergency asset defects.

Our specialist engineers collect oil samples from critical assets (Transformers and Switchgears) and issue sample certificates for both the routine and dissolved gas conditions. If no PCB records are available, Furans testing will be performed as a standard procedure.
