Streamer presented its products at the international exhibition in Indonesia25.09.2017
At the booth Streamer focused on the products meeting the needs of the Indonesian market, in particular, Line Lightning Protection Devices (LLPDs) for protecting 20 kV-voltage overhead power lines, short-circuit indicators (produced by A-TREE R&D Co) and TRANSEC – the system to dry Power Transformers of all sizes.
- Our booth dragged attention of the local power engineers and several companies involved in the substations and the power lines engineering. The engineering companies found it possible to integrate our products into their standard solutions, which they offer to the customers, - Mikhail Zhitenev said.
The importance of this exhibition for Streamer was not only in familiarizing with the potential customers and creating new business contacts; the possibility of purchasing various components was considered: such events usually concentrate different offers from all over the world.
Streamer has already been working in the Indonesian market for a long time. In 2016 about 5 thousand LLPDs SAi20z were sold in Indonesia; the first installation of the Transec system in the region was made in the same year.
Streamer participates in the research project of the Institute Technology Bandung, ITB. The real lightning strikes are known to be multicomponent, complicated, and always differ from each other. It is almost impossible to simulate them in the realistic way in the laboratory environment. That is why ITB scholars study lightning "in the natural habitat" - in the field laboratory. To attract strikes to the area with the metering devices installed, the grounded lightning rockets are launched to thunder clouds. Thus, the lightning is lured to where it can be video-recorded and assessed in terms of impact on nearby sensors.
- The overhead power line equipped with our LLPDs is somewhat fifty meters away from the grounding point. You can hardly find the overhead power line exposed to lightning strikes several times a day within all period of launching the rockets, in the presence of meters and high-speed video cameras. It's a great opportunity to study not just lightning but the operation of our devices in a "live" line as well, - Mikhail said.
The next launching period has been scheduled for October. Streamer LLPDs are installed on the overhead power line, and that was agreed during the exhibition.
EPRE Indonesia takes place every two years since 1981. It provides the participants with an opportunity to discuss the terms of investment projects in Indonesia and to find business partners for their implementation.
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
At the end of September, Streamer's topics have been presented at ICLP-SIPDA
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
Ivan Zhitenev took part in the 50th St. Gallen symposium

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.
