excited to attend!

And, with the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, those with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions.
Plant managers and engineers must ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to replace or upgrade aging switchgear. Facilities without a properly-implemented strategy put operations at risk that could lead to safety issues, equipment damage and/or downtime.
