Base-Wide Grounding System Verification/Study Joint Force Command (NATO) Southern Europe Bagnoli (Naples), Italy



This electrical study consisted of verifying the current state of the grounding systems at NATO’s Joint Force Command Southern Europe and developing “as-built” designs of the base-wide system. Our electrical engineers performed a series of tests including a three-chord voltamperometric, using an HT Italia model Geo416, to insure the grounding system’s resistance was compliant with European Directives on low voltage 2006/95CE (LVD) and directive EMC 2004/108/CE. The results were then verified using a Vemer Multitest VS100S meter. Also carried out were operational test of the differential devices to verify correct installation and the operation of current safety devices within the grounding system.
