Our History



LV and MV Installations

Servelec specializes in both Low Voltage (LV) and Medium Voltage (MV) installations. LV installations, operating under 1000 volts, involve setting up circuits, wiring, switches, and distribution boards for residential, commercial, and industrial spaces, prioritizing safety and precision to meet client needs. On the other hand, MV installations, ranging from 1000 to 33,000 volts, power larger facilities and distribution networks. Servelec's engineers handle MV deployments, including transformers, switchgear, and protection devices, ensuring reliability through rigorous testing, fault protection, and regulatory compliance. Serving diverse projects, Servelec guarantees efficient and safe power solutions at both LV and MV levels.
