Process Electrical and Automation
Intellex is a leader in designing electrical installations for industrial processing facilities. We partner with world leading processing companies to provide a complementary electrical and automation solution to meet their processing requirements. We cover all aspects of electrical and automation design from the transformer down to the final instrument and everything in between.
Intellex helps our clients plan and manage their electrical infrastructure. This includes transformers, main switchboards, generators and power reticulation(LV/HV cabling). Whether it is a brand-new greenfield site or an expansion of a existing site, we provide advice on ensuring critical electrical assets are future proofed and designed for its entire lifecycle. We provide advice on master planning and give our clients a holistic view of their electrical infrastructure. By using our experience and expertise, we provide our clients with cost-effective solutions for the present whilst avoiding costly rework in the future.

Hazardous areas are environments deemed to have risk of explosion due to gas, vapour and dust emissions. The New Zealand Electricity (Safety) Regulations formally require that any electrical equipment that is installed within such areas must achieve electrical safety. Whilst this was not a new requirement, (because standards for such compliance have existed for several decades), it places a formal requirement on suppliers, owners and operators of factories and buildings to comply. Intellex is a leading authority in hazardous area classification and design, we help our clients achieve top-class safety and compliant installations.

Earthing and Lightning Protection
A comprehensive earthing and lighting protection system are critical for protection of people, equipment and buildings. Correct earthing design is essential to any electrical installation, subtle oversight in a poorly designed system can cause significant consequences for both equipment operation and human safety. Intellex designs and implements both functional and protective earthing systems, giving our clients complete confidence in their electrical installation.
Lightning strikes are unpredictable and damage can be range from electronics failure to catastrophic explosion and fire. Intellex helps our clients understand this risk using a quantitative approach based on location, installed equipment and building structure. We then mitigate this risk by implementing appropriate light protection systems which often requires a collaborative approach with the other engineering disciplines to ensure a desirable outcome. Intellex has developed practical and proven lighting protection schemes with various industry leaders within New Zealand and Australia.
Lightning Risk Assessment – compliant to AS/NZS1768
Lighting Protection System Design
All machinery have hazards. The degree of risk to health and safety these hazards create need to be determined so methods of mitigation can be implemented to create a safe working environment for the end-user/operator. Intellex can provide a complete end-to-end machine safety solution for industrial machinery and equipment. We guide our clients through the Machine Safety Risk Assessment (MSRA), then work in collaboration with vendors, designers and end-users to develop, verify and validate the required safety system.

Verification and Validation (SISTEMA)
Procurement and Construction Monitoring
Intellex has a wide network of suppliers and vendors who we work closely with. We can help our clients save costs by negotiating direct procurement of equipment from the manufacturer. Our clients rely on us to create tender packages for both equipment and installation procurement, we are a detailed design company with no specification left to chance. Intellex also provides varying degrees of on-site and off-site construction monitoring. We are flexible in resources and skills to provide cost-effective services to our clients. Our value comes from our wealth of experience and strong collaborative approach that we take to every project.
