Testing as a cornerstone for reliability
Most grid operators and wire manufacturers do not dispose of adequate facilities, in-depth knowledge or practical experience to perform the wide range of required, accredited or often tailored cable, conductor, fitting or wire tests. Outsourcing these tests to a full-service trusted partner is an economical and effective solution that provides peace of mind.
Power and railway grids
Overhead conductors and catenary wires are the cornerstone of power and railway grids. Assuring their quality, specifications and strict adherence to standards are important challenges for railway or power grid operators, contractors or engineering firms alike. The reliability, performance and future-proof design of grids depends on it.
First and foremost, accredited and independent testing is indispensable for conductor, cable or alloy development and innovation, ensuring compliance with all necessary type testing and customer requirements. Swift and thorough testing is key in case of incidents and maintenance as well. Finding the root of the problem quickly avoids unnecessary delays and costs.
