Live Events

HPES is one of the UK's most comprehensive providers of certification services to BS7909 and beyond. Our experienced team regularly provide expertise for international sporting events, major music festivals and broadcast installations.


Since our formation in 2004, we have developed and refined a unique and systematic approach to testing, configuration and inspection to ensure the safety and reliability of complex power systems. We employ staff with specialised training and bespoke testing kits to provide an efficient, industry leading service that can scale from a single generator to the largest and most prestigious outdoor events in the global calendar.


Prior to the London 2012 Olympics we made a significant investment in custom mobile software that has been constantly updated to keep pace with changing standards and more efficient methods of working. Common electrical safety issues are automatically escalated in real-time to be reviewed and dealt with at the earliest opportunity. Automatic collation of inspection data and as-installed schematics allow our Qualified Supervisors to spend less time on administration and more time focusing on critical electrical matters.
