Germany: Megger has acquired Power Diagnostix of Aachen, Germany, a leader in the development and manufacture of high voltage diagnostic equipment, and in the provision of diagnostic services for high voltage installations.
The acquisition of Power Diagnostix significantly extends Megger’s technical and manufacturing capabilities, particularly in the field of Partial Discharge (PD) testing, where the company can now offer diagnostic and condition monitoring solutions for medium- and high-voltage (MV and HV) electrical assets, including transformers, gas insulated switchgear, motors and generators.
These new capabilities neatly complement Megger’s existing capabilities in cable testing and diagnostics. New capabilities also include transformers, bushings, generators, motors, switchgear and GIS/GIL installations, all of which complements the company’s existing substation and cable test and diagnostics solutions and services.
Following the acquisition, business will continue as usual for both organisations. Dr Detlev Gross, the founder and former owner of Power Diagnostix, will take up the role of Managing Director of Megger’s Power Diagnostix business.
