EA expands overseas

Power engineering specialist EA Technology is opening sales offices in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi to support its global growth strategy.

The power engineering specialist based in Capenhurst, Cheshire is also increasing its number of international distribution partners to 25. It has appointed five new distributors in Portugal, Poland, Italy, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and expects to add a further four European distributors soon.

Haydn Rees, leader of EA Technology’s international business, said: ‘There are massive potential markets for EA Technology products and services worldwide, particularly for assessing the condition of MV and HV assets by measuring Partial Discharge (PD) activity, which is one of the most valuable technologies available for live testing.

‘Our UltraTEV Detector has become virtually standard equipment across the UK power industry, where condition-based maintenance is now the norm, and we have already had tremendous success with it in the Far East and Middle East.

‘Our strategy is to continue expanding our range of PD instruments and make new inroads into countries where condition-based asset management is relatively unknown.’
