Full Scope Solutions, Lower TCO, Reduced Project Risk

We can serve as your main automation contractor (MAC), responsible for electrical, instrumentation, control, information, and safety aspects of your project.

With this plan, we will obtain resources, select technologies, and manage the entire scope of the project including third parties.

Engage a MAC for Your Large Projects

Reduce Project Risk for EPCs and End-Users

Large, complex projects bring undeniable risk. They are susceptible to scope and budget creep, which can lead to missed deadlines and overspent budgets. The involvement of multiple vendors, consultants, and internal stakeholders can lead to costly miscommunication.

A MAC takes on the risk and responsibility that is associated with the implementation of a complex automation system, which means:

  • EPCs can focus on project areas that align with their unique strengths
  • Your company can reduce project risk

A main automation and information contractor (MAIC) is the next level of MAC. MAIC involvement can dramatically reduce risk of downtime through intentional system design that:

  • Improves visibility into processes
  • Offers real-time data and alarming
  • Provides access to actionable data to inform decision-making
