The  RAI certification means that Eric meets RETA’s  rigorous standards for his knowledge of refrigeration systems and his skill as a trainer.  According to the RETA website, there are currently only eleven RAI’s in the United States. SCS Engineers hopes to add two more RAIs soon.

Eric Girven serves clients in the Eastern United States. He works out of the Wyalusing office just outside of Scranton, PA, providing expertise in Process Safety Management and Energy Management supporting SCS’s public and private clients with a focus on industrial refrigeration facilities.

Eric assists clients in complying with these requirements, including mechanical integrity inspections for the ammonia refrigeration system, as well as assistance with energy efficiency measures.
