High Voltage

High Voltage (HV) installations form an integral part of any business with a need to be backed by extensive engineering, project planning and maintenance regimes. The loss of electricity supply due to a poorly maintained HV system can be devastating leading to lengthy down time costing business’ thousands of pounds.
