Our team is located in Warrendale, PA, In addition to SSDs’ internal resources, our leadership, engineers and technology experts have the support and cross pollination of MEPPIs’ various power equipment manufacturing and telemetry technology divisions as well as our MELCO manufacturing groups out of Japan
One of our biggest strengths is that we handle the A to Z of our projects, from site work, building, infrastructure, implementation and testing, within the SDD organization. Our team seeks to respond to every RFP, completely. This allows the customer to have a single primary services organization that handles all aspects of a project, no matter how large or complex. One accountable resource - One contractor to call for issues - One warranty - One support group - One training resource. This is an incredibly powerful outcome.
Within SSD there are three distinct groups of offerings. GIS/AIS substations group, FACTS/HVDC group and our Flexible energy storage group. Each of these three groups offer both Turnkey project services and products as well as Substation services. Drafters, engineers, designers, schedulers, project managers and others are all sourced to fulfil any customer requirements from ground up turnkey substation design and construction to substation service support, commissioning, testing and more
Generally speaking, the work we accomplish is characterized as large projects that extend many years and are responsible for millions of dollars of spending by our clients. SSD prides itself on hiring highly qualified employees, providing a high-quality work environment and nurturing teams of professionals that are capable of managing large projects and are equally committed to many years. Even still, there are always new professionals joining our organizations. They are trained and brought along to handle the level of quality we expect to deliver to our customers
Many large professional engineering organizations work on a resource model. They will plug in professionals from all over the world. A need for civil engineering in Los Angeles may be outsourced to an engineer in Bangladesh who may work on civil engineering Monday and product design on Wednesday. This process is a fragmentation of assets
SSD, on the other hand, houses our leadership, core intellectual and professional teams, and engineers in the same office building. Working side by side, fully dedicated to our power utilities related projects every day. The result is that our teams build synergistic efficiencies and familiarity that translates to improved quality and responsiveness. Many of our clients have worked with the same SSD team members for many years over many projects.
Mitsubishi’s reputation, storied history, legacy, bankability and our strong warranties and assurances provide a stability and engender a confidence in the clients we work with. This is a huge consideration when moving forward with power projects worth tens or hundreds of millions of dollars and that communities and industries rely on every day.
