VPS works on large and small projects, short term and long term, in the UK and around the world. Our work helps ensure that electricity supplies are reliable and safe for homes, businesses and public services.
We have provided power system protection expertise and investigations for primary substations, various large and small power plant, protection and control systems, aluminium smelters, steel works, railways and hospitals.
We are proud to have contributed to the introduction of significant improvements in the electricity supply in Oman, which have increased reliability. Over a five-year period, VPS carried out a major audit on behalf of the Authority for Electricity Regulation Oman.
VPS is a consultancy company specialising in Power System Protection and Studies associated with the Electricity Supply Industry, major industrial, transportation and commercial customers. Some of our projects are overseas based, however, all of our consultants are based in the UK.
