Heavy equipment refers to mobile industrial equipment that is equipped with permanently attached equipment that cannot otherwise move under its own power, such as cranes, shovels, loaders, diggers, and drills. These vehicles are designed for use primarily away from public roads, and are primarily used in construction activities. It also involves fires affecting large machinery components used in the oilfield or in manufacturing plants.
ESi’s heavy equipment fire investigation experts analyze incidents involving this type of equipment. The diversity of their experience allows our teams to analyze not only the components and systems that make up a piece of heavy equipment, but also how those components and systems interact with one another during operation and initiation of fires.
This makes it possible for us to help our clients predict possible points of failure in those complex systems, and to uncover the precise root cause of failure when a fire incident does occur.
ESi's expertise spans dozens of industries and specializations organized across several practice groups, each staffed by dozens of in-house experts with the technical knowledge, hands-on expertise, and courtroom experience required to execute projects for and with our clients from start to finish.Find an Expert Contact Us
