Our Knowledge is Your Power

The foundations of our extensive knowledge base have been built on the research and development work carried out by the HVPD Directors and Senior Engineers. This knowledge has been passed on to our training, test and customer service engineers who transfer it to our clients through training courses and data analysis service contracts.

We have consistently published the results of our research and development work at a number of international conferences around the world, with more than 50 papers published so far.
