With employees who greet each new challenge with enthusiasm, the key to our success is our flexibility and adaptability.

Asset Management

Why do you need High Voltage Asset Management?


In most cases your HV Equipment and Systems are critical to your plants reliability because there is often no redundancy and the systems can be the single point of failure for your facility.

In order to maintain the equipment in a safe, reliable and functional state, regular predictive and preventive maintenance is required.

HV Maintenance can be divided into two categories – Non Intrusive and Intrusive:

Non Intrusive or predictive maintenance should be carried out while your plant is live and equipment is fully loaded and up to operational temperature.

Intrusive or preventive maintenance is carried out while the equipment is shutdown, isolated and locked out.

HV Non Intrusive Maintenance includes:

• Partial Discharge Testing – PD

• Equipment Visual Inspection

• Voltage, Amps & Temperature Readings

• Infrared Thermographic Imaging – TI

• Oil Sample Analysis

• Power Quality analysis

HV Intrusive Maintenance Includes:

• HV & LV Switchgear Inspection & Testing

• SF6 Switchgear gas handling equipment and leak detection, disposal and recycling

• Transformer Inspection & Testing

• Transformer Condition Assessment

• Tap Changer Maintenance

• Busbar Inspection

• Cable Termination Inspection

• Cable VLF & Partial Discharge

• Protection Relay Inspection & Testing

CT & VT Services

H&MV Engineering offer the following Current Transformer (CT) and Voltage Transformer (VT) services.

Ultrasonic Partial Discharge Testing

Non-intrusive discharge monitoring is a very effective predictive maintenance test for MV motors, MV generators and MV switchgear as well as other electrical distribution equipment.

Protection Relay Services

We are capable of testing all protection relays from the old induction disc type to the modern multifunctional electronic relays.

Maintenance of low voltage circuit breakers

The deterioration of a low voltage circuit breaker is normal and this process begins as soon as the circuit breaker is installed. If deterioration is not checked, it can cause failures and malfunctions.

Dielectric Fluid Sampling & Analysis

H&MV Engineering takes oil samples to perform a Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) and an Oil Content and quality evaluation of a transformer and switchgear insulating fluids in accordance with specifications.

Transformer Condition Assessment

Testing to assess the health of power transformers and diagnose problems is of utmost importance to ensure the long term and safe operation of these very expensive power assets.

Cable Fault Locating

Although today’s power cable is designed for long life, failures can still be experienced. H&MV Engineering has taken cable fault locating from a hit or miss “art” to an exact “science.”

Thermal Imaging

Using Thermal Imaging we are able to rapidly test electrical systems for hot spots caused by loose connections or damaged and overloaded wiring before further damage is caused to your equipment.

Power Quality Analysis

Much of the electrical equipment in an industrial facility requires high-quality electricity; it will not tolerate sags, swells, transients, or harmonics, and it certainly will not tolerate power outages, no matter how short-lived.

Preventative Maintenance

It’s natural for electrical equipment to degrade over time, but it doesn’t necessarily have to fail. Preventive Maintenance Services from H&MV Engineering will evaluate the condition of your equipment and determine the most cost-effective and manageable solution to ensure its overall performance, safety and reliability.

Soil Resistivity & Earth testing

Effective earth grounding is essential for grounded AC and DC electrical equipment and distribution systems. Effective grounding provides the level of safety required to protect personnel and equipment from shock and fire hazard.

Circuit Breakers

HV Circuit Breakers (CB’s) are electrically operated switches designed to protect your electrical circuits from damage. Regular inspection and servicing is essential to ensure the reliability of your system and safe operation of the circuit breaker to protect your power systems.

Battery Testing

Battery banks provide an independent source for switchgear control, engine generator set starting, signal and communications systems, laboratory power, emergency lighting, and other applications. Batteries are the essential component of any Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

HV Cable Partial Discharge Testing

Partial discharge mapping is a non-destructive technique for condition monitoring, assessment and commissioning of high voltage cables.
