E2G|The Equity Engineering Group, Inc. team is recognized as having some of the most talented engineers in the industry – the “go-to” consultants for hard-to-solve problems. But we’re also known for offering practical advice and solutions that clients can implement in a timely fashion.

Because our engineers have hands-on plant experience, we understand the changing dynamics of an operating environment and the pressures you face. We know your concern is for safety, reliability, optimizing your plant’s operating conditions, and not needlessly inspecting, replacing, or shutting it down.

E2G engineers lead industry development committees in Fitness-For-Service, Risk-Based Inspection, and Materials & Corrosion, and have consulted on more than 1,000 projects in these and related areas.
