Veca’s safety measures have improved even as the company has grown rapidly.

With field hours increasing by nearly 300 percent in five years, Veca Electric & Technologies is doing more work, diversifying into new sectors and new geographic areas with many new personnel. Despite the challenges of rapid growth, Veca’s safety measures are all improving significantly.

One job illustrates Veca’s overall success: At a silane refining facility, Veca’s electrical team installed more than 5 miles of cable tray, 50,000 feet of medium voltage cable and 25,000 feet of PVC-coated RGS conduit. Veca’s instrumentation team installed 150,000 feet of cable and 2,200 process-control instruments.

Veca was responsible for the entire control installation and commissioned more than 1,200 complex control loops. With crews in excess of 200 and a tight schedule, the entire project entailed 440,000 hours of field work without a single recordable incident.
