installed by contractors in the late 60s and 70s to meet the
increasing load demands of industry began to fail in the 80s and
90s. These failures have been documented and are available in the IEEE
and Doble Engineering Minute reports. This failure trend
will continue in spite of state-of-the-art changes in construction
techniques and installation methods unless preventive maintenance
steps are taken."
