We have completed design projects which cover a broad range of engineering disciplines.  We have provided full design service from customer  “blank sheet”  proposal through to engineering assistance with existing design issues. A few examples are illustrated below.

The design, from customer specification, through to production of a specialised form of high voltage insulator for the high voltage insulator design for use on HVDC station equipment in the electricity transmission and distribution market.
