Kema-Powertest LLC held its ground breaking to add a new test cell, number 9, at its High Voltage and High Power Test laboratory in Chalfont, Pennsylvania.

Once completed, the new high-power test cell will be the laboratory's largest test cell in size and volume (34 feet by 30 feet by 26 feet high) and will provide a safer environment to test and certify electric power utility equipment coming into the marketplace.
