Unit Exchange (UTEX) Programs


preparation through warehousing and repair

HECO can help you set up your unit exchange program for electric motors.

This program is a combination of warehousing and repair. There are a variety of benefits to a UTEX program. Here’s one of the biggest. Let’s say you have 100 motors in your plant. We’ll have 10 repaired spares at our facility ready to go. When you need a spare, you get one right away and pay a fixed cost to repair the failed one — which then goes on our shelf until it’s needed, too. This is a very different kind of system that is a hybrid of spare and repair.
