Making Problem Solving Possible

Technical and
Engineering Services

From strategy to execution, throughout the asset lifecycle

We have expertly executed predictive diagnostic testing of in-service power cables, power transformers, switchgear, grounding systems, and more. Our comprehensive testing services and state-of-the-art inspections arm organizations with consistent results, giving them a clear view into the future of their assets.

We offer the most advanced online testing methods that allow for the assessment of assets without the need for planned outages.

Our team can work with you to develop an Enterprise Risk Management framework that looks at overall risk to your organization, and to perform benchmarking with existing frameworks to ensure best practice.

We are a team of seasoned experts, taking on challenging problems.

Field Testing and Inspection

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.

High and Medium Voltage Services

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.

Grounding Services

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.

  • Cable commissioning testing
  • Cable maintenance testing
  • Power transformer testing
  • Switchgear testing
  • Ground grid testing
  • Counterpoise assessment

Electrical, Civil and Structural Engineering

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.

  • Project management
  • Technical support
  • Material estimation
  • As-built package development
  • Civil assessments

Our subject matter experts are also heavily involved with working groups of national and international organizations.

Engineering Studies and Technical Reviews

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.

  • Transient, dynamic, and steady state stability analysis
  • Lightning, switching surges and insulation coordination studies
  • Underground and overhead transmission and distribution design and improvement support
  • Hybrid solar-wind power system, DER interconnection & integration
  • Advanced Microgrid studies

THE METSCO TESTING LABORATORY

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:

  • Splice/joint qualification tests
  • Termination qualification tests
  • Root cause failure analysis of MV cables
  • Root cause failure analysis of splices or terminations
  • Accelerated water absorption testing
  • Long-term water stability testing

Case Study

Medium-Sized Northern Ontario Distribution Utility – Remote Substation Rebuild

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.

Project Profile

Advanced Cable Diagnostic Test Techniques for XLPE, HPFF and LPFF Cable Systems

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.
