Local Utility provides portable generation to the downtown mercantile area in Manhattan. After the event of September 11, 2001 the utility connected the portable generators as requested to provide power until normal power could be restored. A review of the terminal connections was requested and performed utilizing Infrared.
The results indicated issues at the terminals which required attention in order to avoid failure. The results are provided in the scans that follow.
The connections were addressed and corrected. Thermal scans were conducted after the connections were remade producing satisfactory results.
The scans displayed were taken 10 days after 9/11 after the utility installed many generators in the Wall Street area. The project manager was concerned that the connections were subject to failure. The scans confirm his concern. IR Scans were performed until the generators were disconnected.
