Energy & Power Equipment
The energy and power sector keeps the world economy turning. But changing global conditions pose challenges for the sector as economic growth drives a continued rise in demand for electricity. In this dynamic environment, manufacturers need to innovate as well as economize, while keeping their products safe and reliable, and conforming to changing standards to gain end-user trust.
Likewise, operators need to ensure safe and efficient processes are in place to avoid downtime, technical failures, and accidents leading to injury and costs. Clean energy investments have hit record highs and traditional power generation methods are experiencing revenue downturns. Last but not least, digital disruptions are creating many new opportunities but also threats of cyberattacks. In the end, it all comes down to creating as much trust and confidence as possible among end users.
Eliminating failures, reducing downtime and avoiding accidents
Safe equipment and systems, adequate processes, and properly trained employees are vital for manufacturers and operators in the energy and power market. At DEKRA, we make sure you comply with international standards, national deviations and end-user specifications to maintain a high level of safety and reliability. We offer the full scope of low, medium and high voltage testing for products such as cables, switchgear, busbars, circuit breakers and transformers, as well as a wide range of services: from type tests and product supervision to factory acceptance tests.
Flexible testing routes
We are an approved and impartial third-party testing laboratory and inspection body for a wide range of utility companies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Testing can be performed in our (ISO 17025 certified) DEKRA laboratories in Dubai, Hungary, Asia or the Netherlands. It's also possible to test in your own laboratory or in a third-party laboratory under our supervision (ISO 17020).
Widely recognized certificates
Our (type test) certificates and (type) test reports are widely recognized and accepted by grid operators, utility companies, end users, governments, authorities and other stakeholders around the world.
In addition, we ensure the safety of your plants and processes through, for example, assessing and certifying your functional safety management system. We also offer guidance, training and personnel certification.
With the acquisition of the VEIKI laboratories, a member of the Short-Circuit Testing Liaison (STL) in Hungary, DEKRA has strengthened its position in the testing of medium and high-voltage transmission and distribution equipment and components. Learn more about VEIKI, a DEKRA company.
