On July 6, 2017, the Grand Opening of Streamer Beijing took place. Although the representative office of the Company has been successfully operating in China since 2014, on this day we decided to gather all our partners and friends and introduce the Streamer team to them. It turned out fun, productive, informative and interesting. We wish success to our colleagues in China!
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.
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.
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 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
The adventure has started with training the linemen who will be later mounting the LLPDs on the power line. In total, it was five teams with eight workers in each. We held a practical workshop at Pampanga Substation's warehouse. During the training, we presented the principle of LLPD – the EasyQuench system and focused on the features essential for the installation and maintenance crew.
In this chapter, you can find the Frequently Asked Questions on LLPD, inspired by our customers. We hope that the comprehensive answers will be useful for anyone interested in the lightning protection of overhead lines.
Prior to the large tender awarded by TNB to Streamer Electric AG, we conducted on-site trainings for the LLPD dM35z installation. The purpose of this activity was to educate the end-user personal for proper installation of LLPDs and selecting the most suitable accessories for each tower. The onsite training was conducted in four different cities: Selangor, Johor, Perak, and Kedah.
And here one more successful LLPD-project from China where Streamer has equipped 2 power lines with 150 pieces of Line Lightning Protection Devices 11kV for direct lightning protection, SAd10z and 100pcs for indirect lightning protection SAi10z inHuabei Oilfield Erlenhot Branch (Erenhot, Inner Mongolia).
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.
The key measures to prevent coronavirus are to avoid crowds, do not touch your face, and one of the most important is to minimize the interaction with surfaces of “popular objects” that are encountered by everyone.
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.
In the beginning of December, we took part in the Latin American exhibition FISE (Feria Internacional del sector eléctrico) - the International electrical equipment fair. This is an industry event where the leading companies in electric power and related sectors meet.
A meeting of Ivan Zhitenev, President of Streamer Electric AG, and Üli Maurer, President of Switzerland, took place in the Embassy of Switzerland in Moscow on November 21st, 2019. We asked Ivan Zhitenev to tell us about the course of the meeting and to share any interesting observations.
