Soil Earth Resistivity Testing

Tesla carried out important on-site soil resistivity testing for the earthing design of a client’s new power station. This test used the Wenner 4 pin test method and, as in this case the earthing system is to be relatively large, long test runs were considered prudent.


Four 300m test runs were carried out to enable obtain sufficient data for Tesla to develop the necessary soil model for earth grid design.


Tesla can carry out this typical set of tests for any new major electrical generation or substation site and this is often required before project planning or tendering can commence.  For further information contact Russell Cathcart: russell.cathcart@tesla.co.nz
