This building is a high voltage laboratory for testing dielectric transformers up to 850 KV. It is a diaphanous vessel 57 metres long, 30 metres wide and 27 metres high (inner dimensions), surrounded completely by a Faraday cage needed for the extremely precise measurements performed inside.
The main hall can be divided into three main spaces for carrying out the impulse and resonance tests and SF6 equipment tests.
As an annex to the main space, there is a technical block with views into the testing room, which comprises two control rooms and a reception, a meeting room and space for presentations and meetings for up to 60 people.
The New Laboratory is intended as a laboratory featuring the most advanced technology in the sector, a representation of ARTECHE innovation, reflected in a polished metal façade that vibrates along its perimeter. The imposing building is integrated into an environment that is characterized by buildings that are significantly lower.
