The Seagate Minnesota Campus will be renovating approximately 100,000 sf of the site to accommodate more lab space and constructing a 77,000 sf expansion to increase manufacturing capacity. These efforts will result in a lot of existing electrical, mechanical, and other equipment being decommissioned and new equipment being installed. To support Plant Engineering and Maintenance, all decommissioned systems will need to be taken out of the preventive maintenance (PM) system. All planned new equipment will need to have PM records created for them including type of service, frequency, spare parts, etc. This effort will require a gaining an understanding of the various building systems and how the equipment components are tied in to the whole as they are taken out.
Updating the PM records will require extensive work with the site Electrical, Mechanical, and Controls Engineer as well as the electrical and mechanical maintenance teams.
