Max Services Provides Quality Assurance for Power Restoration

Employs Puerto Rico's Brightest Unemployed Engineers

— Max Services Engineer
SAN JUAN, PR, USA, December 20, 2017 / -- Max Services, a division of Max Cybersecurity, was awarded two contracts by the Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) this month to provide inspection of the power restoration activity across the Island of Puerto Rico. The company is led by Mike Echols, former Director Joint Program Management Office at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Max Services deployed its team of 90 professionals in Puerto Rico this week to begin work. Hugo Durand and William Torres were appointed as "Chief" to manage the effort.

The Max Services team is responsible for assuring the completion of work as scheduled by the two main power restoration contractors (Power Secure, Fluor). The inspections will assist the USACE to know the details of restoration work and maintain accountability daily. Max Services will count resources, review task completion to account for materials, and observe manpower assignment.

Puerto Rico is still attempting to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Island residents are, for the most part, without dependable power even where there is power generation. Electrical power is required to run critical infrastructure such as water filtration and systems that assure communications with the outside world. Current estimates show Puerto Rico restoring power to previous capacity in four to six months. There is a fear professional residents and businesses might leave Puerto Rico if “confidence” in the power restoration effort is not established and maintained.

According to Mike Echols, MAX Services has a strong team of bilingual Puerto Rican engineers that care about their home. This is critical as the work requires long days and Max personnel will work in harsh conditions at a pay rate far less than their power restoration counterparts. As one Max Services engineer explained, “this is not just about the money, it’s about our future and the welfare of our families. Max Services provided a job when there wasn’t one, and the training I will receive provides me future opportunities.”
