Black building test
Black Building tests are carried out to test for mission critical and high availability sites. In practical terms it means that the electrical power to the entire building is shut off to simulate a grid power outage.
What would happen if a critical facility lost its power completely? Is the site robustness fully functioning as designed? Is the organization ready to act in case of failure? What is the readiness for such an event?

This requires proper planning and preparation in order not to compromise the business operations that rely on the critical facility being tested.
Coromatic Advisory plans and leads the engagement together with the customer. Skilled and qualified technicians are on site during the test to ensure and document site system performance for the power distribution. This includes generators, UPS and the power distribution across the facility.
