HV, MV & LV Switchgear requires regular surveys and maintenance. This would also include the extended protection Systems, Transformers, Battery Systems, and all associated cables.
Relays and Circuit Breakers protect your electrical network and your personnel from dangerous fault currents. V-TES has the equipment and knowledge in-house to make sure switchgear and related equipment support can be provided almost instantaneously.
We can perform these works either On or Off-shore and offer services from Design through to Procurement, Installation, Commissioning and Health Care Contracts.
Our Engineers are highly trained and competent to Survey, Re-furbish, Install, and Commission.
V-TES can supply and install hazardous area electrical equipment which is accredited to worldwide standards (ATEX and IECEx), complete with full certification and a comprehensive level of technical support.
We also offer Ex Inspection and register support. With thousands of items needing to be kept up to standard can be a major undertaking. Our knowledge and experience of inspection, maintenance, RFID tagging, and Ex-area declassification will cut your workload and focus your efforts on your most hazardous area.
66KV JOINTING & TERMINATION
V-TES specialise in cable jointing and terminating from LV up to and including 66KV on all types of cables.
Whether a straight splice or a motor termination, it’s essential that cable jointers are trained, competent, and familiar with your equipment. Our fully qualified engineers have the equipment, certificates, and experience to carry out any job to the highest of standards.
All areas of electrical engineering are supported from concept design, project management, and install, to commissioning including aftercare maintenance and repairs.
In line with our net-zero carbon strategy, V-TES also offers carbon-reducing solutions, services and products to provide energy in a cleaner, lower cost and safer way. V-TES is your local service partner with global coverage and always working to look after your interests.
GWO CERTIFIED ENGINEERS
Our engineers are trained to GWO standards with First Aid, Fire Awareness, Manual Handling and Working at Height. V-TES can support with all areas of on & offshore wind farm projects – from Rope Access Technicians (Level 1 – 3), HV/LV Switchgear Maintenance, Electrical Installs & Repairs, Testing, and Condition Monitoring, to HVPD Partial Discharge, and Fault Finding – all to the highest standard of safety and quality.
Working at height or accessing difficult areas/equipment can require rope access solutions. V-TES have a successful track record in providing experienced Rope Access Technicians for offshore and onshore requirements.
V-TES can provide highly competent rope access level 1, 2 and 3 Technicians for contract hire or stand-alone projects such as electrical installation and maintenance, HVAC maintenance, construction & decommissioning.
We are a certified IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) licence holder.
HIGH VOLTAGE PARTIAL DISCHARGE
Maintaining the integrity of your high voltage networks and machinery is of utmost priority. With insulation breakdown being the primary cause of failure in HV systems, it is essential that testing is carried out to detect any potential deterioration or damage in this area.
Partial Discharge is the presence of small sparks or other electrical leakage either between phase conductors or to earth. Although insignificant in that it causes no disturbance or direct failure, its presence is the first sign of a breakdown in the insulation of HV systems such as switchgear, transformers, motors or generators. Close monitoring of Partial Discharge, therefore, is an invaluable tool in detecting minor issues before they escalate into catastrophic failures. PD monitoring results can also play a vital role in devising equipment maintenance or replacement strategies.
The monitoring of Partial Discharge is a non-destructive process and can be carried out with your equipment online, and therefore has little or no impact on your production or business. It can be performed either periodically as part of a preventative maintenance regime, or continuously using dedicated condition monitoring equipment.
V-TES supplies highly trained and qualified Fibre Optic Specialist Engineers to the toughest of projects. Our Engineers are capable of supporting all aspects of fibre installation: splicing, and testing, including the supply of fibre optic products and fusion splicers. Advanced Fibre Splicing can be incorporated in HV Cabling Jointing projects.
