IPROCEL will open its calibration laboratory of electrical variables.
After several years of work, IPROCEL will open its laboratory of calibration of electrical variables, which will be located in the headquarters of the company in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The objective of the calibration laboratory is to obtain ENAC accreditation in the last quarter of this year and to achieve this, daily work is done following the points of the standard UNE-EN / ISO / IEC 17025. The calibration service is oriented to equipment of measurement of electrical variables (voltage and direct and alternating current, measurement of power and energy and electrical resistance). These services are aimed at the industrial sector: manufacturers of equipment, engineering, control bodies, vehicle inspections, electrician installers, production plants, etc.
REE extends contract with IPROCEL for substation vacuum test activities in Spain.
Although the contract period initially was only for the year 2016, the good results of the works at the Moncayo and El Sabinal substations have meant that the works were extended for an additional six months. In this way IPROCEL maintains its extensive collaboration with REE, being one of the companies approved for the vacuum tests, PRM and maintenance of electrical substations. In addition to the projects carried out in Spain, IPROCEL also collaborated with REE during the commissioning of the Tintaya Nueva, Tintaya Existente and Socabaya substations in Peru.
IPROCEL participates in the construction of two wind farms in Gran Canaria

IPROCEL exposes its experience in the United States in a meeting between Canary Islands companies
Last Tuesday, 8th November, took place a meeting between Canary Islands companies and Jochen Müller, a political analyst of the European Commission and expert in TTIP, to discuss the benefits of the Free Trade Agreement between Europe and the United States. Together with two other companies from the Canary Islands, IPROCEL had the opportunity to present its experience in the United States, where it is established since the beginning of 2014. Once its first project was completed, specifically the commissioning and operation of the Crescent Dunes thermal power plant, the company maintains its activity in the country in order to start new projects in the next months.
IPROCEL successfully concluded the commissioning of the Dulces Nombres II Combined Cycle Plant in Mexico
MHO Engineering, the Mexican subsidiary of IPROCEL, has completed the commissioning of the instrumentation and control systems at the Dulces Nombres II combined cycle plant. IPROCEL completed the works in a shorter duration than initially anticipated, thanks to which it obtained the recognition of Iberdrola Ingeniería and GE/Alstom.
IPROCEL thus consolidates its activity in Mexico, giving continuity to a team of professionals that currently exceeds 25 workers. In addition to this project, the company has completed the commissioning of the Agua Prieta and Valle de Energía power plants in Mexico.
