    1 day

Electricity is the life blood of modern society. Any interruption to its supply can have a huge impact on individuals, businesses and communities. The transmission and distribution (T&D) sector, and the energy industry as a whole, must devote extensive resources to prevent and stay ahead of power supply disruptions. Will your purchased components stand up to today’s power network reality? With the world of energy undergoing significant change, it has never been more important than it is today, to minimize risk and stay ahead. To manage these risks, utilities need to ensure that the design of the power network is exact and that the T&D components in the network meet essential specifications and comply with international standards. 

KEMA Laboratories has developed a 1-day workshop for utilities; a platform where we share our knowledge on the need for testing and certification. This workshop, built on the results of 20 years of extensive testing data, reviews component failure rates and reveals how certified testing helps utilities reduce the risk of blackouts.


  • Introduction DNV GL & KEMA Laboratories
  • Merits of testing and certification
  • Testing of high-voltage circuit breakers
