Consolidated Switchgear Established From Old 'Con-Select' Organization

Consolidated Switchgear, Inc. of Madisonville, La., is now in its second year of operation. Consolidated was established by a core group of management and production people from the old "Con-Select" organization of Harvey, La., and Beaumont, Texas, to provide quality, costeffective electrical equipment and services for the marine industry.

Consolidated Switchgear Inc. is fully qualified for, and experienced in, handling all aspects of the most complex marine electrical installation from conception through startup.

This system capability includes all, or any portion of the following essential elements of marine electrical installation: 1. Pre-design concept studies, including feasibility studies, carried out with the owners or their naval architects and marine engineers for the entire electrical and electronic system.

2. Preparation of bid or purchase specifications and guidance plans for the owner, carefully coordinated with hull and mechanical design by others, in full accordance with any worldwide regulatory body or classification agency requirements.

3. Development of final ships electrical wiring drawings for the shipyard in accordance with owners specifications and/or guidance plans in full accordance with any specified regulatory body or classification agency.

4. Electrical project management for the owner including complete coordination and interface with all electrical and/or electro-mechanical equipment manufacturers or suppliers.
