We provide the most advanced and comprehensive package of testing solutions available to better assess the condition and future performance of your asset infrastructure. We take our findings from the field to the boardroom and help your organization and its leaders act accordingly as part of your greater asset management operations.
From high-voltage cable testing, commissioning, and management, to diagnostic testing of power transformers, we offer clients a suite of testing solutions so you can better understand the present and future condition of assets. This includes offline (de-energized) and online (in-service) testing, monitoring, and condition assessment of all high-voltage and medium-voltage equipment.
We provide state-of-the-art inspections and testing techniques for substation grounding systems. We also specialize in auditing existing grounding systems to make sure systems are safe and aligned with best practice.
We have an extensive variety of highly specialized field testing services.
Our field services and engineering experts design, inspect and help implement a variety of projects. Our robust teams of electrical, civil and structural engineers have immeasurable expertise in utilities and construction meaning we can provide a comprehensive suite of engineering services.
Our subject matter experts are also heavily involved with working groups of national and international organizations.
Our future-forward philosophy at METSCO means we are constantly looking at ways to improve best practice industry-wide, on top of our individual client projects. That’s why we work with internationally recognized organizations - including IEEE & CEATI, and specific industries (such as power system operators) - to develop best practices and standards through advanced electrical engineering and studies.
Additionally, we also offer training programs in these areas, so organizations can continuously improve and evolve their individual programs, practices, and business processes.
Our leading edge Technical and Engineering Services team is at the forefront of the industry. To continue servicing our clients as efficiently as possible, we have created a new in-house testing laboratory which boasts the following industry-leading capabilities:

A medium-sized Northern Ontario distribution utility needed to perform a rebuild for one of their critical substations installed in a remote location. The nature of this location introduced a number of challenges for the utility, including the extreme temperatures as well as long lead times for procurement of new equipment.Read More
CEATI recognized that there was a lack of available resources and standards that would help utilities identify the latest and greatest and most effective advanced diagnostic testing and technologies that existing for evaluating the performance of underground cables. There was a need to establish an easy-to-digest guide that provided in-depth information on available testing technologies and how these could be applied in order to assess cable reliability and performance.Read More
