ARQIS advises Megger Group on acquisition of Power Diagnostix

7. June 2019

Achen/ Düssel­dorf — ARQIS has advi­sed the UK-based Megger Group Limi­ted, a global specia­list in electri­cal test equip­ment, on the acqui­si­tion of the Aachen-based Power Diagnos­tix Group. The Power Diagnos­tix Group is a leader in the design and manu­fac­ture of high voltage diagnostic equip­ment and in the provi­sion of diagnostic services for high voltage equip­ment. Both parties have agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price.

The acqui­si­tion signi­fi­cantly expands Megger’s reper­toire, parti­cu­larly in the area of partial discharge (PD) testing, where Megger can now offer diagnostic solu­ti­ons for MV and HV electri­cal equip­ment, inclu­ding trans­for­mers, bushings, gene­ra­tors, motors, switch­gear and GIS/GIL equip­ment, all of which comple­ment the company’s exis­ting cable testing and diagnostic products.

The Power Diagnos­tix Group provi­des high quality diagnostic equip­ment, engi­nee­ring services and online moni­to­ring systems for high voltage appli­ca­ti­ons. Foun­ded in 1986 as DG Instru­ments GmbH, the group of compa­nies has acqui­red a good repu­ta­tion in the special field of measu­ring and moni­to­ring equip­ment for high-voltage and pulse energy technology.

Megger deve­lops and manu­fac­tures porta­ble electri­cal test equip­ment. Its products help users install and improve the effi­ci­ency of their electri­cal equip­ment or that of their custo­mers, and help reduce the lifecy­cle costs of equip­ment and extend its service life. The company’s products support custo­mers around the world, helping them achieve the best return on invest­ment with their electri­cal equip­ment, opti­mize energy effi­ci­ency and mini­mize downtime.
