MPS POWER RESTORATION
During and after a storm, MacLean Power Systems is dedicated to keeping our power infrastructure performing optimally, by supplying world class products and programs to fulfill the needs of customers who maintain electrical services to consumers worldwide.
STORM EMERGENCY PROGRAM
During and after a storm, providing products for power restoration is the highest priority for MacLean Power Systems. In support of our customers, MPS provides customer service, inventory and shipping support for the emergency material needs of restoration. MPS manages storm procedures based on Storm Alert levels as identified below.
Storm Alert Levels
Green – MPS is operating under normal business conditions. A minor/isolated storm can occur with isolated outages, or a major piece of equipment/line can experience an outage where local stock is not available to restore power. Storm orders will ship with priority from available inventory or priority production as needed.
Yellow – A major storm is threatening and MPS is on alert for potential major outages or a less severe storm has occurred with isolated outages reported. MPS will continue normal shipping / production operations and is preparing to receive significant storm orders. Where possible, we will expedite open orders and ship LTL, ahead of the storm, to major customers that have a contract with MPS. In this mode, it is anticipated stocking levels will be sufficient for Storm and normal orders, however there is potential that material due to ship to open orders outside of the potential storm area may be affected.
Red – A major storm is in progress or has occurred with widespread outages. Significant Storm orders are being serviced. MPS will monitor Storm order requirements and release normal orders that will not interfere with storm restoration. There is high potential that material due to ship to open orders outside of the storm area may be affected.
MPS will monitor weather and utility outage reports and elevate the Storm Alert Levels as necessary. The Storm Manager will notify internal and external contacts when the levels are elevated. The Storm Alert Level will be posted on the main page of macleanpower.com when elevated above green.
Inventory: MacLean Power Systems maintains seasonally adjusted inventory levels of critical restoration products, such as connectors, hardware and insulators. When a major storm is imminent, we will proactively review inventory levels associated with potential storm material needs.
Availability: Stocked material is generally available on a first-come first-serve basis. During storm situations, MPS reserves the right to determine when and where to make material available to ensure that material goes to the area(s) in the most critical need.
24/7 Manufacturing: MacLean Power Systems will dedicate all production capability toward manufacturing storm orders during a major event. We will operate 24/7 as needed to manufacture any of our products needed for storm emergency restoration. Availability will depend on raw material availability.
