5 Reasons Why GreyMatters Is Chosen For Earthing System Design Frameworks






GreyMatters specialise in Earthing System Design for earthing systems 1kV-765kV to meet EN 50522 and and international specifications

GreyMatters has been protecting critical assets and life from the harmful effects of high voltages and lightning strikes globally since 1995.

GreyMatters focus on electrical earthing system design, earthing measurement and surveys, lightning protection design, training and policy formulation.

In this debut Guest Blog from Ian Griffiths (GreyMatters Principal Partner) we learn how and why GreyMatters are revolutionising earthing system design and changing the status quo to protect our homes, businesses and industries from the harmful effects of uncontrolled releases of HV electrical system power,
including lightning strikes.

Ian's next Blog with T&D will tackle the effects and discuss preventative actions for 132kV cable strikes when installing an earth.

  1. Customer Service Guarantee - There are a number of things we aim to do really well; and are prepared to back this up with a unique guarantee and refund your investment. No other Earthing Consultancy in the world has the confidence to offer this.
  2. Not all CDEGS modeling software is the same - Using top-end tools which account for the capacitive and inductive effects (Faraday's law) allows the contribution from above-ground structures to be examined as well as the below-ground as part of the design. This gives you unique insights on options available to ensure the designs are fully optimised for each situation – potentially saving upwards of 50% on construction at build phase.
  3. Fully transparent process - Never feel like you’re in the dark! Our fresh approach offers a fully communicated process so you’ll never feel like you’re ‘in the dark’. This can be particularly useful on multiple sites where keeping track of progress is made a little easier and you won’t have to waste time chasing us.
