About Skema

Skema provides its clients with complete, integrated Power Distribution Systems, encompassing medium and low voltage packaged substations, medium and low voltage switchboards (LV switchgear and Intelligent Motor Control Centres) and Integrated Protection and Control Systems.

The company - which is strategically located in the heart of Italy's main business hub, just 20km north of Milan - was founded more than 30 years ago with a single mission: to become one of the leading international players in the design, engineering, manufacture and installation of low voltage switchgear and MCCs for the worldwide oil and gas industries. Today, Skema is the only Italian company that has succeeded in remaining at the forefront within its chosen sectors, and the company regularly participates in the most ambitious oil and gas projects around the globe.
After more than three decades in business, Skema has by now built up an extensive client base, both in Italy and around the world. These clients include the top international engineering, oil and gas companies, as well as a wide array of manufacturers, service providers and general contractors.
