Casey Smith
Electrical Engineer

 

What accomplishment at Absolute are you most proud of?
Engineering studies for a chemical plant near Galveston Bay. We integrated new and existing equipment in the software model to verify adequate ratings, provided settings for overcurrent coordination, and provided arc flash labels. We also worked with the owner's engineer and contractor to ensure a safe and reliable installation.

What is the most unusual or interesting project you’ve worked on at Absolute?
Engineering studies for an electric vehicle maintenance facility. The new technology was the most unusual thing, but I expect these facilities will be much more common as time passes.

What is your favorite lunch hole-in-the-wall?
Tino's or Culver's.

What is your favorite place on Earth (Your Happy Place)? And why?
Hunting in remote parts of Edwards County with no cell phone service, or a rural bike ride far from traffic.

Who inspires you?
Col. James H. Howard, a WW II fighter pilot and Congressional Medal of Honor winner.
