Everest joined hands with LSIS to conduct type testing for their switchboard which will serve the electrical safety industry in the low voltage category.

The full type tests were conducted for 2,500 A, 415 V/ 690 V/8 kV and 50/ 60 Hz low voltage power switchgear and control gear.

“The panel was tested by Power Testing and Technology Institute, Korea, and witnessed and certified by Intertek- ASTA which concluded that the panel is as per their standard of quality and performance and in accordance with the latest standard, IEC 61439-2,” an Everest Electrical statement said.

“Bahrain’s electrical market can now benefit from this certification and ensure a reliable supply of quality-tested panels in their electrical networks.”

An LSIS spokesman commented: “We are very happy to be associated with Everest Electrical WLL … With the help of their expertise and management we have been able to capture a good market share in Bahrain for residential, commercial and ministry projects.”
