Introducing the METSCO High-Voltage Testing Lab. Learn more
The amount of cables, switchgear, bushings, and other electrical equipment that our customers are responsible for is almost unimaginable. That just one of these elements could fail and cause serious outages or catastrophic safety issues is even more so.
That’s why we have introduced METSCO’s new high-voltage testing laboratory - a space where our team has the in-house capability to test and assess the equipment our customers need to work perfectly.
Working in lockstep with our clients’ internal teams, we can now identify the equipment that requires thorough testing and run the necessary assessments that produce the in-depth insight our customers need to make important investment decisions. Our in-house HV laboratory can conduct these tests with a rapid turnaround time to ensure that you get those insights in a timely manner.
Designed by our team of industry veterans and passionate young minds, our laboratory helps manufacturers and end users with everything from design, production, and qualification and acceptance testing, to condition assessment and root cause failure/forensic analysis on electrical equipment. All tests are performed in accordance with popular industry standards such as IEEE, IEC, ANSI, CSA, UL, NEMA, ICEA, AEIC, and ASTM, among others.
Our laboratory, run by some of the brightest science and engineering minds in the industry, covers a wide array of testing services, so we’ve listed them below!
Design/qualification tests for medium-voltage (MV) cable accessories and low-voltage (LV) cables
Long-term testing of MV and LV cables
Prototype and R&D testing
Production testing of switchgear assemblies
Root cause failure analysis of cables, switchgear, transformers, and other equipment
Voltage endurance testing of rotating machines
HV live-line & safety tools testing
HV equipment testing training and laboratory workshops
