Power Transmission and Distribution
Total Quality Assurance through testing, inspection, certification, and advisory services.
As demand for energy continues to increase, end users require reliable, cost-effective electrical power. Intertek supports power utilities, manufacturers, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) in delivering effective power solutions to industrial, commercial, and residential environments. With a combination of services ranging from testing, inspection, and certification all the way through engineering and environmental advisory, Intertek drives quality and efficiency throughout the entire Transmission and Distribution lifecycle.
Intertek’s global experts help our clients optimize people, processes, and environments across industries such as Power Generation, Hazardous Locations, Renewable Energy, Smart Grid Services, and Power Plant Integrity Management.
Transmission and Distribution Equipment (TDE) is connected to the electrical grid and encompasses everything from Moulded Case Circuit Breakers, to LV switchgear assemblies through MV transformers, to high voltage substations and overhead lines. We provide local services to extend your global reach, and our certification marks and deliverables are accepted by major electrical utilities and authorities around the world.
ASTA Mark and ETL Listing
Increasingly, end-users require independent on-going verification and validation of the equipment supplied to their network. Intertek supports the value chain and offers ASTA Mark and ETL Listing.
Founded in 1938, our ASTA team is delivering both IEC Type Test certification and equipment approval. Each project is witnessed by ASTA Observers responsible for conducting tests in accordance with ASTA requirements, standard specifications, and for verifying the accuracy of the recorded test results. Certification of Type Test provides independent objective compliance of the equipment tested at one point in time. The ASTA Mark is accepted in more than 40 countries worldwide.
The ETL Mark is proof of equipment compliance to relevant North American safety standards, including IEEE, ANSI, and UL, and is recognized by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) across the US and Canada.
We deliver the services and support applicable to your equipment and support network operators' needs with precision, pace, and passion. Whether your equipment will be commissioned in a hazardous environment requiring explosion-proof protection, or within a renewable assembly requiring crucial operational support for wind turbines, Intertek’s experts are part of your team, assisting you at all stages of development.
