The principle focus of LORD Power Equipment is the provision of suitable devices and applications expertise to the Australian Power Industry so as to permit adequate testing and assessment of power system assets to determine or assess their condition, safety, reliability, and potential remaining life. From such information, effective asset management decisions may follow. Our associated consulting arm, www.lordconsulting.com, provides additional expertise in this particular area throughout Australasia.

Minimisation of Third Party Damage to Power and Telecom Cables:

Many leading brands are represented, including Morgan Schaffer, Weschler, RH Systems, UVIRCO, Aspen, and P&B Weir.
