1o. What is Power Delivery?
Power Delivery is an industry term for those facilities responsible for the transportation of electrical power from the point of generation to the end user. This includes transmission and distribution lines, either overhead or underground, and substations where the electrical power can be stepped up to a higher voltage or stepped down to a lower voltage depending on the application and need of the end user. Engineering of these facilities requires the coordination of electrical, civil, and structural disciplines. See the Power Delivery page for more information.
11. What does Sega stand for?
When Sega was started in 1973, the letters stood for Specialized Electronics and Graphics Arts. In 1982, after our business direction focused on energy industry services, the acronym was dropped and the name was changed to “Sega”.
12. Are you related with the game company?
Although we like to have fun, we know our clients take their business very seriously. We pronounce the “e” in our name with a long “e” vowel sound, not a long “a” sound like the game company. So, no, we are not associated with the game company.
