Micheal Williamson, EIT, has joined Wilson & Company’s Kansas City office, bringing with him 11 years of experience as design and lead engineer for electrical systems within industrial and commercial facilities.
“We appreciate Mike’s excellent knowledge and background in industrial electrical design,” said John Harrell, Operations Manager - Electrical Engineering. “He’s really fitting in well with our team.”
Micheal is responsible for the design and analysis of electrical power systems and has both on-site electrical field investigation and construction support experience for process and industrial facilities. He has a strong background in electrical load flow studies, short circuit analysis, and relay coordination studies.
Micheal’s experience includes the energization of 5kV switchgear and 5kV and 480V motor control centers. He also has experience in writing specifications for power distribution centers, medium voltage switchgear, low voltage motor control centers, medium and low voltage switchgear breakers, protective relays, and FAA obstruction lighting. Additionally, he has on-site experience working in a refinery on projects that focused on electrical system reliability.
A signature project Micheal worked on was a multi-million dollar engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) project for a new gasoline benzene reduction process unit at an existing oil refinery. He oversaw the electrical design all the way from conceptual design through detailed final design. The electrical design included electrical work for the new process unit, revamp of an existing process unit, and modifications to the refineries electrical infrastructure. Also, he was the on-site electrical and instrumentation field support engineer during the project’s construction phase. All of this work was accomplished within the first four years of his electrical engineering career.
“We are excited about Micheal joining our team. His experience with project construction and industrial projects adds real world value to Wilson & Company and to our client’s projects,” said Jimmy Anderson, Senior Vice President.
Micheal has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Kansas State University. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
In his spare time, Micheal enjoys spending time with his family, watching and playing sports, and spending time outside.
