Ensuring Safety and Efficiency in Pan-India Warehouses with Multi-Pronged Approach


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its comprehensive expertise in warehouse electrical safety through a recent project spanning warehouses across multiple Indian cities. This case study highlights the effectiveness of combining Electrical Audits, Electrical Safety Audits, Thermography, and Earth Pit Testing to create a safer, more reliable, and compliant electrical environment for our client’s vital storage facilities.

Project Overview:

Our client, a leading logistics provider, operates a vast network of warehouses across India. Ensuring the safety and efficiency of their electrical infrastructure in these diverse locations was critical to their operations. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive multi-pronged assessment of their warehousing electrical systems, covering four key areas:

Safety Audit


  1. Electrical Audit:
  • Our certified electrical engineers meticulously inspected all electrical components, from switchboards and panels to wiring and lighting systems.
  • We load balancing, and identified any potential power quality issues.
  • Advanced data acquisition tools were used to collect precise measurements and generate detailed reports.
  1. Electrical Safety Audit:
  • Our safety experts rigorously examined the system for adherence to national and international electrical safety standards and regulations.
  • We assessed grounding and earthing systems, emergency lighting and safety systems, and identified any potential fire hazards.
  • Detailed reports were generated highlighting non-compliance areas and recommending corrective actions.
  1. Thermography:
  • Trained thermographers utilized cutting-edge thermal imaging cameras to capture temperature variations across electrical equipment.
  • These infrared images revealed hidden issues like:
    • Overheated connections and components
    • Faulty transformers and switchgear
    • Imbalanced loads and inefficiencies
    • Potential fire hazards
  1. Earth Pit Testing:
  • We assessed the effectiveness of the earthing system, which is crucial for safety and equipment protection.
  • Soil resistivity measurements were taken to ensure proper grounding conductivity.
  • Earth pit leakage currents and voltage drops were measured to evaluate system performance.

Combined Insights:

By combining the data from all four methodologies, we were able to paint a comprehensive picture of the electrical health and safety of each warehouse. This allowed us to identify not only immediate safety concerns but also areas for optimization and cost savings.

Findings and Recommendations:

The combined assessment revealed a range of issues across the warehouses, including:

  • Outdated equipment: Upgrading aging transformers and switchgear could improve safety and reliability.
  • Unbalanced loads: Optimizing load distribution could reduce energy waste and prevent equipment overload.
  • Potential fire hazards: Loose connections, faulty wiring, and overheating components posed safety risks.
  • Inadequate earthing systems: Some locations required improved grounding for optimal safety and equipment protection.

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report for each warehouse with prioritized recommendations, including:

  • Specific equipment upgrades and replacements.
  • Lighting retrofitting plans.
  • Load balancing adjustments.
  • Preventive maintenance schedules.
  • Earth pit upgrades or reinstallation where necessary.


By implementing our recommendations, the client achieved remarkable results:

  • Enhanced electrical safety across all warehouses, ensuring employee and equipment protection.
  • Improved system reliability and minimized downtime.
  • Reduced maintenance costs and prolonged equipment lifespan.
  • Improved compliance with electrical safety regulations.


This case study exemplifies the power of Elion Technologies’ comprehensive approach to warehouse electrical safety and efficiency. By combining meticulous data analysis with advanced technologies like thermography and earth pit testing, we helped our client achieve significant positive impacts on their operations.
