Key issues in Cable Test: SebaKMT hosts third UK seminar

Current key issues in the testing of power cables on systems from 11 kV to 132 kV, recent developments in cable test technology and the particular problems associated with cable testing in offshore applications are the main focus of the Third UK Cable Test Seminar, which is being hosted by SebaKMT, a Megger company, at the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham on Wednesday, December 4th 2013.

The free of charge seminar is open to anyone with a professional interest in power cable testing but booking is essential. An early application is strongly advised as, based on the experience of the previous two popular and highly successful seminars, the demand for places will be high.

Sessions at the seminar will be presented by some of Europe’s leading experts in cable testing technology, including Peter Herpertz, Product Manager for Power at SebaKMT, Hein Putter, Product Manager Testing and Diagnostics at SebaKMT, and Andrew Barclay from Kinectrics.

All of the presentations will concentrate on the ways in which well-planned and well-executed cable testing regimes, based on the use of the most appropriate technologies, can significantly reduce downtime, disruption and operating costs while greatly enhancing safety for the test technicians and engineers and, in many cases, for the general public.

In addition to benefiting from the invaluable insights and information provided by the formal sessions, delegates attending the seminar will also have ample opportunity to meet informally with their peers for the exchange of ideas and experiences, and also to discuss their own particular cable testing requirements and problems with experts from Megger who have wide practical experience in almost every area of the electrical industry. The delegates will also be able to inspect the latest cable test products.

The Third UK Cable Test Seminar is a one-day event, which starts at 09:00 and finishes at approximately 16:00. Complementary refreshments and a light lunch will be provided. The venue has ample free parking and is located conveniently close to motorway, air and rail networks, as well as Birmingham City Centre.
