BELA showcases its latest High Power and High Voltage Electrical Testing Labs at MEE 2018

Dubai World Trade Centre - UAE, Mar 6-8 2018

BELA, the Basque Electrical Laboratories Alliance, is set to showcase its High Power and High Voltage Electrical Testing labs at the 43rd edition of the Middle East Electricity (MEE 2018) expo which opens at the Dubai World Trade Centre in the UAE from 6 to 8 March 2018. BELA's booth is located in Hall no. 2, stand E17.

MEE is one of the largest international trade events for the power industry. It will cover the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, the renewable and nuclear energy sectors and the lighting industry.

"MEE is definitely a major event for us. We have the opportunity to meet manufacturers of electrical equipment from many parts of the world and approach the Middle East utilities as well for the recognition of our Test Reports" says Mr. Aitor Kortajarena, Senior Engineer and BELA technical director. "TECNALIA has already been present at the MEE Exhibition in the last 6 years and it has helped us to develop a strategic market in the Gulf Countries, thanks to our test capabilities and recognition by the main utilities. The BELA Alliance is the next step to extend our test scope to high power and extra high voltage test services."

Speaking of BELA's labs differential value, Mr. Kortajarena says, "BELA provides full type testing for a wide variety of electrical equipment from low to extra high voltage, thanks to our high power (2500 MVA) and EHV (1500 kV AC, 4800 kV BIL) facilities. This makes us a reliable partner for the conformity assessment and certification of equipment for T&D networks".

"We are very excited to exhibit our new test facilities in BELA and continue our expansion in the growing Middle East market" he added.
