Since 1988, North Central Electric Inc. has been offering a full spectrum of electrical contractor capabilities to the ever growing and evolving electric utility and power generation industry. At NCE, we are constantly growing our capacity in order to meet the demands of our customers. We are a leader in technical services, presenting our customers with important testing capabilities, including high voltage cable testing.
What is High Voltage Cable Testing?
High voltage cable testing can prevent dangerous situations from happening. Cable tests are performed to predict future faults in power grids and deal with them accordingly. Our engineers are qualified experts in all aspects of high voltage commissioning and testing. We have the internal resources and partners to complete the most advanced commercial cable diagnostics for both new age and in-service cables. Our involvement with many highly complex projects in the electric utility and power generation industry often times has us working simultaneously across high voltage commissioning, testing and installations jobs. If your organization or facility needs help with industrial electrical cable management, look to the skilled and knowledgeable engineers at North Central Electric to complete the job accurately. We have the expertise to continually succeed and meet project demands on time.
Why is High Voltage Cable Testing Important?
High voltage cables are critical assets for many commercial, industrial and utility clientele around the world, playing a critical role in everyday operations. These cables generate large amounts of power, and if not properly maintained, they can become extremely dangerous. Industrial electrical cable management services are important because they ensure that these cables are operating properly, preventing loss of production, which could eventually lead to loss of revenue. Our experienced engineers will perform the necessary tests to these important cables, ensuring they are up to code, functioning properly and maintaining them to further prevent any complications that could arise.
