DNV GL’s world-renowned testing and certification services provide independent proof that your ring main units meet all the necessary requirements, opening doors to let you export products across the globe.
We test and certify complete medium voltage ring main units and their individual components against recognised international standards such as IEC 62271-200. Our efficient test methodology helps to reduce testing costs, while our facilities in the Netherlands, USA and Czech Republic accurately simulate the operating and fault conditions equipment faces in the field including high short circuit powers. In addition, we can act as an independent witness for on-site tests.
Range of tests
- Short circuit tests
- Dielectric tests
- Temperature rise tests
- Mechanical tests
- Internal arc tests
Tests can be performed at 50 or 60 Hz.
Internationally recognised certification Depending on the range of tests chosen, a successful unit or component will receive a KEMA Type Test Certificate. This internationally accepted Certificate is evidence that your product meets all the requirements of the defined standard or specification. The range of KEMA Type Test Certificates for medium voltage ring main units and components includes:
- KEMA Type Test Certificate of Complete Type Tests
- KEMA Type Test Certificate of Short-Circuit Performance
- KEMA Type Test Certificate of Dielectric Performance
- KEMA Type Test Certificate of Temperature-rise Performance
Alternatively, you can choose to receive a Report of Performance or an Inspection Report. These reports describe the tests conducted, but do not provide evidence that a product meets a certain standard or specification.
