Lightning Risk Assessment

Objectives

  1. To do the risk analysis as per various renowned national and international standards such as IEC 62305, IS 2309 and IEEE, also to review the installed lightning protection system.
  2. In depth review of air termination system, down conductor system and earthing system of the existing lightning protection system.
  3. To review the system adequacy as per national and international standards and verify the as built drawing of the installed system.
  4. Finally to provide recommendation and solutions as per best industrial practice to achieve health lightning protection system.
