Oil Test Laboratories
The nine oil test laboratories in Canada, Mexico and the US will operate as AVO Diagnostic Services, providing the vital knowledge that operators need to help lower risk and improve their electrical system’s reliability. For over 30 years the laboratories have been providing actionable information to international standards through a combination of laboratory, field test interpretation, and engineering expertise, delivering complete diagnostic packages for specific equipment types. Bringing to Megger the people with the laboratory expertise gives us access to a large amount of valuable oil analysis data. In the future, working together with our strategic software partners IPS to develop advanced data analytics software, Megger will provide customers with valuable insight on their specific transformer(s) based on the learnings from this vast data set.
