Power Generation Validation Testing - Clark Testing

Power Generation Validation Testing



The US Power Generation industry is on the brink of a major transformation in the makeup and asset mix of how we generate electric power. Due to climate change initiatives, Power Generation companies are reconsidering what standard equipment will be included in their capital asset portfolio to supply electricity to its customer base. Clark Testing has a long established history of supporting the equipment certification and component validation needs of the power generation industry across the entire supply chain. Our services support manufacturers’ of generation equipment, transmission & distribution providers and ultimately power conditioning and consumption equipment.

Clark’s varied capabilities of mechanical and material testing enables our customers to benefit from a single resource for product validation and equipment certification. Clark is provides equipment qualification for all electric power generation technologies including nuclear, natural gas, coal, solar, wind, ocean and other alternative power generation sources. With our seismic testing capabilities, Clark has been one of the lead laboratories in qualifying T&D equipment in support of “Smart Grid” applications.

Our onsite Condition Monitoring Services (CMS) allow power generation companies to understand the overall condition of their equipment to help forecast maintenance, mitigate forced outages and ensure plant reliability. Clark’s rigorous Quality Assurance Programs have been audited by industry, government and commercial stakeholders.
