Testing, commissioning & auditing
Expertise is hard earned and when it comes to electrical systems, it is important to have people who are competent, experienced and highly qualified. H&MV Engineering service engineers are often sought to oversee or audit the ongoing effectiveness of electrical installations.
H&MV Engineering is often required to validate the works that other companies have undertaken to ensure that it meets with the requirements of a design or specification.
Testing and commissioning services are invariably required at the end of a project.
H&MV Engineering in-house commissioning engineers and SAPs (who provided design and specification) return to site and ensure that performance has been achieved to enable a DNO/IDNO to safely energise the installation.
