Why do I need a contingency plan?When talking to customers about contingency planning, the easiest way to decide if it’s needed is to ask this simple question. What’s your plan B? Think worst case scenario. If your temperature control equipment fails today, what are the ramifications for your business? If you’re manufacturing 24/7 or operating in a critical environment such as healthcare, extended downtime may just not be an option. A contingency plan mitigates the risks of interruption to your business, avoiding the financial ramifications it can bring and giving you peace of mind that you’re already one step ahead of the game.
How does it work?Think of it like an insurance plan – except, it’s completely free! It’s one of those things that sits in the background, should you ever need it. In an ideal world you won’t but, if you do, you’ll be glad you have it. It involves just a few hours of your time, spent on site with one of our technical team putting the plan together. Then, should disaster strike, it’s just one call to our Hire desk and we’ll put it into action. Equipment will be deployed to site , along with a team of engineers who will take care of all aspects of installation and ensure you’re back operational as quickly as possible.
What’s involved?One of our technical sales engineers will come to site and walk through your process with you. As well as understanding how you operate and appraising the equipment you’ll need, they’ll consider anything that could present a challenge when installing a temporary solution. For example:
- Is there a suitable power supply, or is a dedicated power supply needed?
- Where are the suitable connection points?
- Are there any access challenges on site for delivering & offload rental equipment?
- Could any enabling works be carried out in advance that would speed up installation, for example adding valves or tees to an existing system and/or keeping a stock of glycol on site if the process operates at below 7°
