Earthing Solutions

Rainey design and install earthing systems for a combination of lightning protection, HV electrical and static control applications. Our specialist team starts by conducting soil resistivity testing on site. With these test results, our design team uses a specialist earthing software, CDEGS and XGS Lab to design a bespoke earthing systems for the eventual system application and site.  Rainey Lightning Protection are unrivalled in Ireland in terms of our experience at providing earthing systems for data centres, sub-stations, wind turbines and electric car charging ports. All our earthing works strictly comply with IS EN 62305, BS 7430, and IEC/TS 60479-1:2018.

How It Works

Supply & Install

Our electrical engineers use numerous configurations and sources in combination to achieve the required resistance levels, adhering to ENA Technical Specification 41-24 Issue 2. Earthing systems commonly used include, but are not limited to, copper-bond earth electrodes; copper lattice earth mats; copper ring tapes; soil enhancement agents, deep driven bore holes and substation earthing. While not required by installers to be fully qualified electrical engineers and RECI qualified electricians, Rainey find that having a team of this level of experience enables a “right first time” approach which is critical when in a time sensitive early stage of a project. It also enables the team to monitor the earth test readings continuously as more elements are added.


Rainey Lightning Protection’s specialist engineers are fully trained in complex test methods for all types of earthing systems. These include the rigorous slope test method and earth loop impedance test. Our processes continually monitor the earthing systems which can detect leaks onto the earthing system and therefore detecting faulty equipment early. This early detection of faults saves against downtime of business processes. To date we have been employed for installations of PV electric charging points and solar farms.

Car Charging Earthing

Currently projects involving EV car charging installations at Pfizers, Maxol , Ionity Audi, Polestar new Car showrooms and many other high profile projects. Rainey & Co Ltd have successfully completed projects from design stage including the aforementioned earth reports to final installation and certification and would be pleased to assist with progressing of any such programmes and projects.
