At the end of September, Streamer's topics have been presented at ICLP-SIPDA13.10.2021
The ICLP-SIPDA 2021 is a conference organized by the scientific committees of the International Conference on Lightning Protection (ICLP) and the International Symposium on lightning Protection (SIPDA). Conference took place from 20th to 26th September 2021. One of the two representatives from Streamer, Alexander Chusov, shared information about this conference and his thoughts about it
ICLP together with SIPDA, and APL (Asia-Pacific Conference on Lightning Protection) are three major events for engineers and scientists dealing with lightning all over the world. Each conference is held every two years and gathers participants of all ages and ranks, from master students to world-level experts, in a different location each time: Shanghai, Hong Kong, Vienna, Estoril to name just a few of the previous venues.
The Streamer team have taken part in the ICLP event several times in the past, each time giving presentations, displaying posters, taking part in discussions, making new contacts, and of course, gathering knowledge.
However, in 2020 everything changed because of the COVID pandemic, so the visit to Colombo in Sri-Lanka, the planned conference site, did not happen. In 2021 the situation had still not improved enough to have returned to the normal state; nevertheless, it was decided to go ahead and hold the conference, but this time in what has now become a popular format - online.
Despite the unusual method of organization, the conference structure was left almost unchanged: the conference days started with invited lectures and session presentations. Among the invited speakers were Vladimir Rakov, Farhad Rachidi, Markos Rubinstein, Carlo Alberto Nucci, and Alexandre Piantini – all real superstars of lightning protection. The talks given by Prof. Rachidi and Dr. Rubinstein must be emphasized since both were devoted to the time reversal method, which is extensively employed in Streamer’s perspective project, SEFL. It is also important to mention the lecture of Prof. Piantini since it highlighted the recent progress in the analysis of lightning induced overvoltages – a topic significant for power system protection specialists. As for the sessions talks, there were so many that deserved our attention that it would take too much time to list them all.
Two representatives from Streamer, Alexander Chusov and Prof. Georgyi Podporkin, participated in the online conference as speakers, both in the same topic area - Lightning Protection of Power Systems. Prof. Podporkin’s paper described new achievements in LLPD development, while Chusov’s paper was about the investigation of LLPD performance at high altitude. Both presentations went well, including question/answer sessions and discussions.
At the end of the day all the tasks were accomplished, and the conference had been successful despite the unusual circumstances. Next stop is ICLP2022 in Cape Town, hopefully in person this time rather than on line…

Why protecting the line against lightning with a CLG? or LLPD?
CIGRE 2022 finished last week
Streamer met with its old friends over the world - it was a nice and warm event, the first big one after the Covid times. CIGRE was also very useful in setting up new cooperation opportunities, mostly in the European region.
First LLPD installation for E-Distribuzione near Oderzo, Veneto, Italy
In 2019, the University of Napoli contacted Streamer Electric AG in order the find a lightning protection solution for medium voltage lines. Prof. Amedeo Andreotti was looking for medium voltage line protection devices for E-Distribuzione, the Distribution utility of Italy, part of the ENEL group owner of the electrical network in Italy but also many other electrical networks around the world. E- Distribuzione is actively looking to improve the lightning outage rate on their overhead line network and particularly in the northern part of Italy.
FIREX International Exhibition 2022 finished
The new LLPD Catalog 2022 is available for downloads
Some significant improvements implemented inside the document will help the user to better understand Streamer product portfolio and especially topics related to EasyQuench system and Line Lightning Protection Device product range, its operation principles and added values.
The international exhibition Intersec Expo finished this week
Ivan Zhitenev took part in the 50th St. Gallen symposium

Line Lightning Protection with LLPDd69z for NGCP in Pampanga, Philippines.
First TRANSEC installation Nicaragua
Frequently Asked Questions on Line Lightning Protection Devices (LLPD) are now aired on the Streamer webpage.
Malaysia On-Site Training for LLPD dM35z
LLPD project in Inner Mongolia, China
First installation of TRANSEC units in Ecuador
Vietnam Ha Giang Power Company will test Streamer innovative devices of lightning protection.
Ha Giang is a mountainous province with a complex topography and experiences extremely high lightning density during the thunderstorm season. 110 kV lines in the province mostly pass through mountainous terrain, many rivers, and streams, so breaks of the line wires due to lightning, are not uncommon. Most of the problem areas are concentrated in areas such as the Nam Ngan hydroelectric power plant and the city of Viet Kuang. Installation of innovative lightning protection devices to provide the region with uninterrupted power supply was necessary.

A simple solution for the prevention of COVID-19
The first Transec unit has been installed in Kazakhstan and Central Asia by Streamer
In mid-March 2020, the first installation of the Transec unit has been completed in Kazakhstan.
Streamer JSC at the World Economic Forum in Davos
The 50th Anniversary World Economic Forum was held in Davos, Switzerland, from January 20 to 24, 2020. As part of the event various thematic meetings and discussions were organized and they were also attended by representatives of JSC Streamer - Ivan Zhitenev and Dmitry Terekhin.
