Can STH start and operate station as specified?


STH requires 10 working days’ notice to schedule a start‐up. STH has allowed 3 hours on-site to perform start‐up on the pump system between 6:30am – 3:30pm, Monday – Friday. Any requests outside of these times / dates will be an additional charge. This form must be completed before anything can be scheduled.

Please note that if STH arrives and the site items listed below are not ready for start-up and STH has to be re-scheduled, then a return visit will require the contractor to provide an additional Purchase Order number for the original Full Start Up amount to be charged as an extra. Any additional work during any start-up event beyond the standard scope will be invoiced at $129 per hour per man plus a $135 Travel Charge (Minimum $522) plus any materials needed.

In addition, if the Start Up is canceled without 24 hours’ notice, you will be invoiced a $500 Cancellation Fee. Delays caused by other trades are your responsibility and do not absolve you of paying the delay and / or Cancellation Fee. Please make your Field Supervisor aware of these requirements and charges so they are ready when we arrive.
