The Powertech Advantage

Powertech Labs Inc. is one of the largest testing and research laboratories in North America, situated in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Our 11-acre facility offers 15 different testing labs for a one-stop-shop approach to managing utility generation, transmission and distribution power systems.

We provide an integrated environment for utilities, OEMs, and government and research organisations that require technical engineering expertise, standards and codes testing, as well as quality testing and failure analysis services. Our world-class multidisciplinary facility enables users to test all aspects of a product or service and to conduct all stages of the product development life-cycle—research, development, validation, and commercialization—in a single location for a comprehensive end-to-end view of the technology.

Powertech is home to a broad range of scientists, engineers, and technical specialists, with capabilities in electrical testing, cable condition assessment, mechanical and materials engineering, software development, power system studies, chemical analysis, gas systems engineering, and smart utility services. These skilled researchers have decades of collective and real-world experience and often work in cross-departmental teams to investigate, diagnose and solve complex problems. 

As an independent, third-party testing facility, we adhere to the highest laboratory (ISO 17025), quality (ISO 9001) and environmental (ISO 14001) management standards. Many of our scientists and engineers chair or participate in various standards committees within their fields of expertise. Additionally we have the capabilities to derive and develop non-standard testing methods and setups required to test product prototypes and perform forensic analysis.

Outside of the utilities industry, Powertech provides routine testing capabilities, product development, research and consulting services to support an array of industrial-type operations, electrical equipment manufacturers and automotive original equipment manufacturers.
