Ipsum Utilities

Planned inspection & Maintenance

Ipsum have over 2,500 national High Voltage (HV) connected sites under contract and average growth of 200+ new sites per annum. Ipsum provides high voltage installation and maintenance services by specialising in offering one-stop-shop maintenance care contracts. This key service provision provides customers with the comfort that their high and low voltage equipment is receiving the appropriate maintenance checks by Ipsum engineers who take on the role of Authorised Person duties if the customer does not have their own resource trained at high voltage.

Maintenance work is conducted in accordance with BS 6626: 2010, maintenance of Electrical Switchgear and Control Gear for voltages ranging above 1kV and up to and including 132kV. Ipsum offers two forms of contract; the first is an Operate & Maintain, where the activities are focused towards sites that don’t have an HV Authorised Person. The second type of contract is purely a maintenance-based approach where generally the customer sites have their own in-house HV Authorised Person. Both Ipsum maintenance contracts include annual visual inspections and 24/7/365 fault/emergency response.
