BROOMFIELD, CO – October 24, 2017 – Twenty years ago today, Comrent International pioneered the load bank rental industry by providing the first load bank solutions for testing and commissioning of mission-critical infrastructure. Since formalizing in 1997, Comrent has grown into one of the largest providers of turnkey load bank testing solutions providing customers with a host of first-class offerings including expedited shipping for last minute load bank needs, customized solutions tailored to site requirements, onsite technical expertise, power quality reporting, and onsite training.
“We are proud of our 20-year heritage, and even more excited to continue researching and developing new load bank solutions that facilitate a faster commissioning process, ultimately getting critical power systems online and generating profit for our customers,” said Doug May, CEO and President of Comrent International. “Comrent’s success is a direct result of our customers involvement and feedback, our strategic partners who have collaborated in developing the best load bank solutions, and our talented, best-in-class employees.
”Over the past two decades, Comrent has introduced an evolution of load bank solutions and a myriad of customer services. In 1998, Comrent debuted its first load banks for generator testing. In 2003, Comrent added resistive/reactive Crestchic and 922 medium voltage load banks to expand into solar, wind and utility substation testing. Comrent was the first to offer the market direct connect medium voltage reactive load bank in 2005. In 2007, Comrent expanded into the data center commissioning market by providing the first rack mounted load bank. On the service side, Comrent then launched its award winning website enabling customers to quickly select their load bank solution, followed shortly the CR Remote technology that controls up to 50 load banks from a single interface.
Comrent’s fleet and reach have grown. In 2007, Comrent expanded its sales presence to Canada. By 2012, Comrent had supported projects in 5 continents, in more than 100 countries including Saudia Arabia, Brazil, India, Japan, Mexico, Columbia, Guana, Suriname and Mali. In the past five years alone, Comrent has completed 80,000 tests successfully, providing an electrical load to test more than 75 GW of power systems worldwide.
“As we look towards the future, Comrent is on the cutting edge of mission critical testing 2.0,” said May. “The exciting part is not only defining it, but leading the way. The first 20 years have been an exciting run, but I’m very confident that with our world-class team and dynamic bright thinking, the next 20 years will be even better.”
