До 10% снизился показатель технологических потерь электроэнергии в сетях ПАО "Сумыоблэнерго" за последние годы

Борьбе с этим негативным явлением специалисты энергокомпании уделяют особое внимание. Ведь технологические потери электроэнергии (далее - ТРЭ) - это не просто цифры и кВт⋅ч, это реальные деньги, которые можно сэкономить и эффективно использовать, например, на обновление электрооборудования и повышение качества обслуживания потребителей.

В результате рейдовых проверок в 2017 году составлено 103 акта по кражам электроэнергии юридическими потребителями (1045013 кВт⋅ч), а бытовыми - 583 акта (877661 кВт⋅ч). В результате дополнительно начислено за 2017 год: по юридическим потребителям - 1301009 кВт⋅ч (2 млн. 339 992 тыс. 059 грн.), по бытовым - 817560 кВт⋅ч (685 420 тыс. 079 грн.).

Кроме того, специалисты ПАО "Сумыоблэнерго" ежемесячно выполняют балансировки сетей напряжением 110-35 кВ, с целью проверки достоверности работы систем учета электрической энергии высоковольтной сети.

С помощью расчетов программы "Пофидерный анализ" составляются балансы электроэнергии по фидерам 10 (6) кВ, по ТП10 (6)/4 кВ и линиям 0,4 кВ (где установлен технический учет электроэнергии), контролируются небалансы многоэтажных домов (оборудованных автоматизированными системами учета электроэнергии).

Проанализировав причины небалансов, определяются проблемные места и результаты анализа предоставляются руководителям подразделений ПАО "Сумыоблэнерго" для дальнейшего планирования и проведения мероприятий по снижению ТРЭ, а именно:

  • проведение рейдовых проверок потребителей;
  • проведение тепловизионного контроля оборудования;
  • выполнение технических проверок и контрольных осмотров с периодичностью, что зависит от договорной мощности и фактического потребления;
  • закрытие и пломбирование участков сетей потребителей, которые находятся до точек учета электроэнергии;
  • установление индикаторов постоянного магнитного поля на счетчики потребителей и использования приборов учета со встроенными индикаторами переменного электромагнитного излучения;
  • использование одноразовых пломб и изъятие из обращения свинцовых пломб;
  • выявление потребителей с использованием электроэнергии, которая не соответствует договорной мощности;
  • проведение внеочередных контрольных осмотров потребителей, попадающих в категорию "негативных" по определенным критериям;
  • проведение периодического радиочастотного мониторинга потребителей (с привлечением специалистов ГП "Укрчастотнадзор" и с использованием собственных анализаторов высокочастотного излучения)
  • оперативный контроль качества работы персонала филиалов.
  • Такая активная целенаправленная работа дает свои результаты, о чем говорят цифры: в 2017 году показатель ТРЭ в энергокомпании составил 233 487 767 кВт⋅ч

    ПАТ "Сумиобленерго" завершили впровадження автоматизації на гідроелектростанціях

    Збереження та розвиток поновлюваних джерел електроенергії - питання, яке сьогодні звучить із усіх телеекранів і вуст перших осіб держави. ПАТ "Сумиобленерго" тримає руку на пульсі цієї теми. На балансі ПАТ "Сумиобленерго" знаходиться три гідроелектростанції, побудованих на річці Псел - Низівська (750 кВт), М. Ворожбянська (500 кВт) та Михайлівська (210 кВт). Ці гідроелектростанції працюють понад півсторіччя, тому на всіх ГЕС фактична потужність встановлених генераторів менше номінальної та залежить від багатьох факторів. Та все ж - Сумщина є однією з тих областей, які мають альтернативні джерела енергії.

    Експлуатація малих ГЕС має ряд особливостей порівняно з підстанціями. Їх продуктивність значно залежить від часто непередбачуваної дії природних умов, що викликає труднощі в процесі планування режимів роботи.

    Минулого року фахівці енергокомпанії розпочали роботи по автоматизації системи управління технологічним процесом приймання, передавання і розподілу електроенергії на М. Ворожбянській ГЕС і Михайлівській ГЕС філії "Лебединський РЕМ".

    Упроваджена система автоматизації управління на М. Ворожбянській і Михайлівській гідроелектростанціях забезпечує отримання в режимі реального часу показників роботи обладнання та виконання наступних завдань:

    • контроль режимів роботи генераторів із використанням вимірювальних приладів - напруги, струму, навантаження, частоти;
    • автоматизація інформаційного обміну між ГЕС і черговим диспетчером РЕМ;

    • контроль рівнів води верхнього й нижнього б'єфа;
    • визначення об’єму води, що проходить по водогону;
    • контроль параметрів механічної частини ГЕС - частота обертів генератора, вібрація валу турбіни, температура статора, температура масла, величина розкриття лопаток турбіни;
    • контроль положення шандорів, стану комутаційних апаратів, рівень води в баках для охолодження генератору;
    • мінімізація необхідного обслуговуючого персоналу.

    ПАТ "Сумиобленерго" не зупиниться на досягнутому. В енергокомпанії планують поетапно впроваджувати АСУТП на всіх технологічних об'єктах.

    Sumy NPO got the right to supply its products to the petrochemical complex of Iran

    "Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association", PJSC expands its business opportunities in the Middle East. The other day the company has received the status of an approved supplier in the National Iranian Petrochemical Company (NIPC), so it will be able to participate in tenders for the supply of a wide range of equipment for the petrochemical industry of the partner country.

    So far, Sumy NPO has operated on the Iranian market exclusively in the oil and gas sector, where it has quite indicative references.

    "Sumy machine-builders was recognized in Iran for the first time in the mid-90s of the last century when the "Farashband" compressor station (CS) was successfully constructed and put into operation. Later, a number of powerful CSs appeared in this state with the help of our

    company. Among them: "Nurabad", "Isfahan", "Chalvand", Ardabil, "Sarab", "Hadzhiabad", "Kharavan", "Sirjan", "Savekh", "South Pars", "Shuridzha" and many others. A special place in the general list is occupied by the gas compressor station on the underground gas storage "Saraje". This is the largest facility of all constructed by Sumy machine builders in Iran. Within the framework of this project, exclusive 25 MW turbo-compressor packages with double-casing centrifugal compressors of low and high pressure were created. Manufacturers of such equipment can be counted on the fingers of one hand. So, oil companies and gas specialists of Iran know about the competences of Sumy NPO not by hearsay, " Igor Bulygin, head of Marketing Department said.

    Along with the oil and gas market of this Middle Eastern country, its petrochemical industry, which is supervised by the National Iranian

    Petrochemical Company, is also of great interest.

    In particular, Iran has more than 40 petrochemical complexes. According to experts, apart from their re-equipment, a surge in the construction of new facilities in this direction is expected. By 2019, the amount of investment in Iran's petrochemical industry will have exceeded $ 40 billion.

    "The petrochemical segment of the Islamic Republic of Iran promises great prospects for those commodity producers who will prove their competence in the process of preliminary qualification to the state-owned company NIPC and will receive the status of its approved supplier. Sumy NPO is one of the few enterprises from Eastern Europe that managed to do it. It took us a year and a half for the passage of all necessary procedures, " Igor Bulygin adds.

    “Sumy NPO” continues its cooperation with the German company IBG

    "Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association" PJSC concluded another contract with the Ingenieurbüro R. Großmann GmbH & Co. KG (IBG) company from German. This time, Sumy machine-builders need to manufacture a number of main assembly units for a gas drying unit.

    In particular, the contract stipulates the manufacture of nine technologically complex blocks, specifically absorbers, degasser, filters, triethylene glycol (TEG) regeneration block, regenerated TEG pumps, anti-foamer metering block. The customer also expects a number of

    vessel products, such as reflux, emergency drain and fresh triethylene glycol storage vessels. This equipment is meant to replace the outdated equipment of the gas drying unit, modernization of which is carried out by IBG.

    The time period for the contract execution is quite short – the new products need to be shipped in the third quarter of this year.

    As stated by Vladimir Andriyenko, the head of the SNPO Sales

    Department, the development of cooperation with IBG offers great opportunities for the Company on the international stage, since that company operates not only on European territories, but also in many other countries worldwide.

    To recap, "Sumy NPO" and the new German customer signed their first contract in April this year. The agreement covers shipment of a lot of II-stage inlet and outlet knock-out drums, as well as nozzles for compressors of the I and the II compression ratio, for replacement in turbo-compressor units in a high-pressure compressor station.

    Sumy NPO will generate electricity for "Energorynok" and generate heat for its own needs since the autumn

    "Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association", PJSC completed a large internal investment project.  According to it, the overhaul of gas turbine co-generation plant with a capacity of 16 MW (ESTU-16), which was removed from operation for a time, was fulfilled. Exclusivity of this facility is that it is able to produce not only electric energy, but also generate heat at the same time. In general, about 22 million UAH were spent to restore to EGTU-16 operational conditions.

    The gas turbine co-generation plant was put into operation by the Sumy machine-builders in 2001 and functioned during the next decade. However, over time, its profitability turned out to be questionable.

    "Tariffs for electricity were low, but natural gas, which is the fuel for the EGTU-16, began to rise in price. The analysis of that time showed that the facility was not economically justified, and it was removed from

    operation. But times have changed. When in 2016 the estimated payback of this investment project was calculated, it was about 2-3 years. However, in connection with the latest rapid tariff changes, I think that EGTU-16 will become profitable even earlier," Aleksey Zhukov the chief engineer of Sumy NPO explains.

    Nevertheless, the key incentive for the company was to achieve maximum energy efficiency and economical consumption of carriers.

    According to Viktor Odintsov, head of the power plant No.120, the thorough tests of the EGTU-16 have been completed recently. The test results even exceeded the design technical parameters. Actually, the plant generates 14.5 MW of electricity per hour with a design capacity of 13.4 MW, and also produces in the same period of 22 Gcal of heat

    energy instead of the planned 21 Gcal.

    "We must also take into account that the tests were conducted at a sufficiently warm temperature. In winter, the figures can be even higher, as the boiler will "react to the weather" and become more productive when the air temperature is essentially below zero. Another feature of the gas-turbine plant is its specific norms for the consumption of natural gas, which is much lower than that of other heat-generating companies," Mr. Viktor Odintsov notes.

    The power generating plant is to be commissioned in October. Generated electricity, in accordance with the requirements of the current legislation, Sumy NPO plans to sell SE "Energorynok", but heat energy will heat its production sites.

    In particular, Sumy machine builders should make 6 inlet and discharge droplet separators of the II stage. In addition, the IBG expects 12 nozzles for compressors of I and II compression stages, half of which are

    suction nozzles, and the second part are discharge ones.

    The equipment specified by the contract is thick-walled (with wall thickness up to 80 mm). It will be used by the customer in turbo-compressor packages at the high-pressure compressor station.

    The delivery is urgent. The production is to be completed by the summer of this year.

    "The prospects of cooperation with the company Ingenieurbüro R.

    Großmann GmbH & Co. KG appeared a little more than six months ago.

    The current project is a priority for the partner, therefore it will become a kind of exam for Sumy machine-builders, according to which the customer will make a final decision on how actively further cooperation between enterprises will develop. By the way, the opportunities are significant, and they are related not only to the supply of certain types of products, but also to joint participation in large infrastructure projects," Vladimir Andrienko, head of Sales Department of the Sumy NPO, said.

    New horizons: Sumy NPO was approved in Egypt

    "Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association" PJSC successfully fulfilled all the requirements for prequalification in The Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), which is the largest operator of the gas industry in Egypt. The other day the company officially received the status of an approved supplier in this company.

    EGAS is a part of the Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources of Egypt. The company is engaged in a wide range of exploration, drilling, natural gas production, its treatment, transportation and distribution in the domestic market, as well as production and sale of liquefied gas.

    "Undoubtedly, such a customer is highly interesting to us as a producer. It's pleasant that Sumy engineers were appreciated in EGAS. Having carefully studied the competence of the association, we were given the opportunity to participate in tenders for the supply of various types of equipment," Igor Bulygin, the head of Marketing Department said.

    It is planned to compete for orders in the new market in the near future. In particular, EGAS has identified major gas infrastructure projects, including the construction of a 175 km pipeline, and the expansion of a number of Egypt's compressor stations.

    "The equipment which is top-requested by EGAS is exclusively our profile. These are turbo-compressor packages, compressor equipment, and pipeline valves. We will apply for all lots and hope for a successful outcome of at least part of the tenders. At the first stage it is important to show yourself, demonstrate your skills directly on the project of a new customer. Experience shows that only after the partner sees the manufacturer in the business, he finally decides whether to develop further cooperation with the newcomer or not," Bogdan Sumchenko, the senior overseas sales manager added.

    Starting from 2013, Sumy NPO has been conducting purposeful work to

    expand the geography of its own products supply. The hard work associated with the stage-by-stage certification of equipment to meet the world standards of ASME and API, pre-qualification in leading companies of the world, representing significant business interest for the enterprise, pays dividents. Actually, Sumy NPO has already the status of an approved supplier from customers, general contractors and engineering companies from Iran, the USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Turkey, Venezuela, Poland, Egypt, UAE, Great Britain, Iraq, etc.

    At the same time, Sumy NPO specialists note that it is rather difficult to establish active cooperation with new partners, as they consider Ukraine to be a state with high risks and are not in a hurry to place large orders here.

    "Sumy NPO", PJSC has become the first engineering company in Eastern Europe, that has been awarded the status of approved supplier in Iraq

    "Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association", PJSC has been pre-qualified and received the status of an approved supplier to the Ministry of Oil of Iraq. Until now, no one company - a native of the former Soviet Union was not represented in the registers of potential producers for the needs of the Middle East state.

    "Sumy NPO", PJSC work on entering the Iraqi market started about four years ago, but only this year it has moved to the maximum productive phase and, in the end, gave a long-awaited result.

    "Despite some threats, Iraq market has not lost its relevance for the oil and gas equipment manufacturers from around the world. This country is very rich in hydrocarbons and therefore the struggle for the right to cooperate with it is very serious. Historically, famous American and Western European companies work in Iraq, but suppliers from Eastern Europe, there still were not - Alexey Tsymbal the general director, explains. - However, our company has proven that products manufactured under Sumy NPO brand meets superrigid requirements of the Iraqi Ministry of Oil to the probable partners".

    Getting approved supplier status in the Ministry of Oil of Iraq is a prerequisite to participate in tenders, which are played in this state.

    "Without representation in the relevant registers of the customer the chance to make at least a minimal supply is of virtually zero. At the same time, the outlook for this market is fairly indicative. Only in 2020, Iraq announces the implementation of a dozen of infrastructure mega-projects worth nearly $ 24 billion, in which the profile products of Sumy engineers can be in demand. Actually, "Sumy NPO", PJSC  is going to compete for the opportunity to supply compressor stations, gas processing facilities, gas drying plants, desulfurization, stabilize hydrocarbon fractionation units and many other equipment", - Igor Bulygin, Head of Marketing Department, said.

    According to him, "Sumy NPO", PJSC has the opportunity to strengthen its position in a new market also due to the fact that the Company has already qualified in a number of companies from the USA, the United Arab Emirates and Canada, successfully operating in Iraq. "So we have some kind of double approval: the main customer and the companies

    that can act as subcontractors and offer to bring to the implementation of other producers of projects, which certainly must have pre-qualified" - adds Mr. Igor Bulygin.

    During 2013-2016 years "Sumy NPO", PJSC was awarded the status of approved supplier of certain products in the leading companies of Iran, Saudi Arabia, the USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Turkey, Venezuela, Poland, Egypt, UAE, UK and others.

    "However, the company has concluded only little by scope contracts with new partners. The reasons for this are several. Among them - the inefficient system of bank guarantees and project financing in Ukraine. In addition, customers with a worldwide reputation working with suppliers whose products and technologies are certified according to the international API and ASME standards. "Sumy NPO", PJSC in this issue is roughly in the middle of the path. Another equally important aspect is the risks of working with our country. Unfortunately, the investment climate, the economy and the political situation in Ukraine at this stage estimated potential partners is not very optimistic, "- says Alexey Tsymbal.

    Sumy NPO - Poland: the distance is being shorten

    Active negotiations to attract PJSC "Sumy Machine Building Scientific Production Association" to the implementation of projects in Poland is currently being conducted. In this regard, on 8-9 September, the company was visited by the delegation of the state oil and gas company PGNiG. Its main goal is to study in detail the technical and manufacturing capabilities of the Association, as well as ensure that Sumy engineers meet their high standards.

    According to Aleksander Tatarinov, Head of Bureau of Sales Division, the primary task for Sumy NPO is closer cooperation with PGNiG, which is one of the largest Polish potential customers of products that the company produces. "We had a lot of presentations, we participated in a variety of exhibition and business activities to establish contact with PGNiG, which is the major exploration and production company of the neighboring state. As a result, Sumy NPO was interested in, and this visit is a kind of turning point: if seen to satisfy our guests, we will get a

    real chance to become partners. In particular, the company is now competing for orders for the production of reciprocating compressors for PGNiG, and we hope that this visit will help potential partners to make their choice", - Aleksander Tatarinov says.

    During the visit, the guests visited a number of the company's production facilities and design departments, among them the shop, specializing in the production of reciprocating compressor equipment. The delegation carefully studied samples of products that are currently produced, was interested in their technical characteristics, nuances of operation. In addition, representatives of PGNiG visited the test bench and the exhibition center of the company.

    "I am pleasantly surprised, - Andrzej Raychek, Deputy Director for operations of PGNiG noted. - Sumy NPO has tremendous opportunities, covering almost the complete production cycle, from the manufacture of castings to ready to test equipment in conditions close to real use. And

    even the company has its own design bureau, a team of installers who are able to commission any facility. In Europe, such an integrated approach is almost not practiced - companies mostly occupy one segment. Here we saw how well-organized production chain can be. Another important factor is that Sumy NPO products has a very large margin of safety. The company puts emphasis on the fact that the equipment operates significantly longer service period - not years, but decades. This approach to business is worthy of respect."

    Sumyoblenergo PJSC has completed works on capital improvement of 35/10 kW Buhruvate, Verkhnya Syrovatka and Shtepivka substations.

    Buhruvate substation has been commissioned in 1973 for electrical supply of Buhruvate, Vysoke, Sonyachne and Illichivka villages and adjacent population centers of Okhtyrka district, Sumy region. During the substation construction a YOM 1962 potential transformer was operated.

    Verkhnya Syrovatka substation has been commissioned in 1963 for electrical supply of Tokari, Bezdryk villages and adjacent population centers of Sumy district, Sumy region. At the moment of capital improvement the potential transformer was 52 years old.

    Shtepivka substation has been commissioned in 1963 for electrical supply of Shtepivka village and adjacent population centers of Lebedyn district, Sumy region. At the moment of capital improvement the 1962 YOM potential transformer was 53 years old.

    Recently, the age of transformers began to tell, testing revealed that the internal insulation is in critical state.

    This issue should not be ignored, because operating an out-of-service and aged equipment increases a risk of emergency and accidental situations day by day and, as a result, leads to failure of electrical supply.

    The necessity of top-priority renewal of potential transformers has been confirmed by conclusions of independent expert panels.

    The precondition for work performance is development of corresponding design documentation. The best practices of applying modern high-voltage equipment were implemented during development of substation capital improvement projects.

    Within capital improvement of 35/10 kW substations 1T potential transformers renewal, transformer foundation repair, construction of

    new sumps and renewal of power and control cables of transformer secondary commutation have been performed.

    Renewal of potential transformers helped to reduce technological electricity consumption and increase reliability of electrical supply of some consumers of Okhtyrka, Sumy and Lebedyn districts by decreasing the risk of de-energization of consumers for a long period of time due to damage of potential transformers.

    New potential transformers, manufactured by Zaporozhtransformator PJSC have been certified and comply with all international requirements; during their production a technology of manufacturing high-accuracy and high-quality insulation assembly parts has been implemented.

    Installed equipment has a three-year manufacturer warranty and a 30-year lifetime.

    Labour Protection Day Has Been Conducted At "Vinnytsaoblenergo" PJSC

    According to the resolution of Mr Yuriy Kasich, the General Director, the Labour Protection Day has been conducted at all structural divisions of "Vinnytsaoblenergo" PJSC. Traditionally this day is conducted every second Thursday of each month and is a quite efficient measure of job-related injuries prevention. This is the day when it is possible to check mostly working places and state of their technical safety, and after a detailed analysis to make clear conclusions about the way how to organize the operation of distribution networks, how efficiently the occupation safety brigades work and whether they comply with applicable labour protection laws - says Mr Sergey Kozak, the Labour Protection Director of Vinnytsaoblenergo" PJSC. According to his words all the management staff of the Company is involved in this event, including, in particular, directors, production services directors, and their deputies. He told our reporter how they had prepared for this occasion and what was especially taken into consideration:

    - Sergey Tymofiyovych, you together with your deputy will go in several hours to Nemyrov and Gaysyn, where you will conduct the Labour Protection Day. Do collectives of these electric networks know about your arrival or your business trip will be a real surprise for them?

    - They and all our subordinate structures, no doubt, are informed about it. On the eve of the Labour Protection Day the respective theme is proposed. In addition this theme is scheduled for a year and sent to each structural unit, that is why every employee, from its Director up to an electrician is notified of the theme on the Labour Protection Day and

    therefore they are preparing properly for this event. In particular, instructions are developed for holding of the Labour Protection Day. At first they organize meetings of the personnel for discussing of the situation with the labour protection and occupational accidents that resulted in injuries both in the energetics sphere and at our enterprise. Unfortunately this year an accident happened at Lypovetsk networks where due to the violation of safety requirements an electricity networks electrician was injured by getting burn on his face and hands. And we remind this accident many times to workers of Nemyrov and Gaysyn electricity networks, to avoid such troubles in the future.

    - By the way, according to the information provided by the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine starting from the early 2014 - 45 persons have been mortally injured at fuel and energy companies, and among them 7 persons have been injured directly at energy enterprises. This is such a sad statistics that makes us think it over.

    - We have to ponder over it and deeply analyse as well. I will give you several examples with lethal end that happened to our colleagues-power men from "Khmelnytskoblenergo" PJSC and "Luganskoblenergo" OJSC. Thus, in the first case a foreman suffered who had not noticed a shunted disconnector at the sub-station and by reviewing the object he approached at the impermissible distance. The final was tragic, unfortunately, the man died. In Lugansk a worker in the vertical conveyor was not fastened by protective belt and he fell out of the conveyor and sustained a mortal head injury. It is very sad to say

    about it, but we have to tell our workers about these accidents for them to understand once and forever what can happen because of insignificant carelessness, mistake and just mere ignorance of safety rules. We will also discuss this topic today at the meeting of employees of Nemyrov electricity networks and at all other regional structural units. This is because of the tendency of increasing injuries in our country, especially in power field, our enterprise has decided to implement new special terms of safety work performance and to exercise thorough control over it since 9 June of this year.

    - Do you have any problems with protective safety means for "Vinnytsaoblenergo" PJSC's employees?

    - Each our brigade of electricians and each sub-station are fully equipped with protective facilities that are bought centrally. Sometimes a delay can happen because of some reasons; however, afterwards we positively resolve this problem.

    - At last, please give some piece of advice as a Labour Safety Director of "Vinnytsaoblenergo" PJSC to all Company's workers?

    - The most important advice is to adhere strictly to current safety rules where unfortunately every item is written by blood. It is especially related to electricians. Please, remember you deal with such production factors as an electric current and height, therefore, please be very attentive by performing your work, as they say: discretion is the better part of valour.

    ZTR Successfully Tested the Transformers for Kenya

    PJSC "Zaporozhtransformator" (ZTR) was visited during a business trip by representatives of the following three companies which are its customers: «Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company LTD» (Korea), SMK (United Kingdom), «KenGen» (Kenya). During their visit the delegates inspected the final tests of four 90 MVA and 220 kV transformers produced for the Kenyan company «The Kenya Electricity Generating Company». The equipment will be installed at geothermal power plants «OLKARIA-I» and «OLKARIA-IV».

    During their inspection the companies’ representatives did not reveal any inconsistencies of the transformer equipment produced by ZTR with the requirements set by the customer. The delegates were also present during conducting the test of connections cabinet and air pollution control system made by RITTAl and supplied by ZTR for the first time.

    "This will be the first delivery of the equipment manufactured by ZTR to Kenya” – Mr. Alexander TSIER, the Sales Director, said. - In July 2012 ZTR entered into a contract on supply of 90 MVA and 220 kV transformers for the Kenyan company «KenGen». As a result of this contract the Republic of Kenya became the 86th country in the reference sheet of sales of the transformer equipment produced by PJSC "ZTR".

    By concluding the contract the customer has put forward stringent requirements for terms of submitting of technical documentation, seismic resistance of transformers, for painting and outdoor equipment cables. These conditions are caused by the location of the geothermal power plants «OLKARIA-I» and «OLKARIA-IV» at an altitude of 2000 m and by a high content of hydrogen sulfide in the air.

    Due to the high level of work organization at PJSC "ZTR", as well as synchronous and streamlined cooperation of its departments, all the customer’s requirements have been taken into account. The transformers have been successfully tested and will be shipped in March of this year.
