Operators & Technical Support

From time to time, utilities lose capabilities in the operation and maintenance of their facilities due to personnel changes. The challenge presented is great, and must be met quickly. A different challenge occurs where a plant is performing poorly. The cause of the problems need to be identified and corrected through either capital improvements or operational adjustment. An approach to meeting the challenges is to bring in experienced personnel to guide plant staff through the learning process and to have them on operating and maintenance procedures.

Jones & Henry’s operators and engineers have assisted many communities in modifying operation and maintenance approaches to enhance plant performance. Additionally, we provide personnel to meet temporary needs.

Our operators have many years of experience, and many of them hold the highest licenses in their respective states. Our engineers, also highly experienced, assist in identifying equipment problems and design solutions to these problems.
