March Consulting Electrical, Instrumentation & Controls

Divided into four main areas, this comprehensive department houses the Electrical, Controls, Instrumentation, and Communication Network components of March Consulting.

Dedicated to providing clients with complete solutions to their electrical requirements, these four areas work in synergy to achieve this goal. Safety and environment is a priority in every design and the use of redundant instruments and control logic prevent any type of negative environmental impact.
