The first of the lightning protection devices, developed to be supplied to SGCC sites, was sent to carry out operational testing in Guangxi province.07.07.2021
The lightning protection device has successfully passed certification tests at CEPRI (Wuhan) owned by SGCC.
During the development, new design and process solutions were found and applied, resulting in improvements of technical characteristics and reducing the cost of a multi-chamber system – the main functional element of a lightning protection device whose design is protected by patents of the Russian Federation and PRC.
In 2018, Streamer and the Chinese company Wuhan Shuiyuan Electric Co, Ltd established a joint venture to arrange production of grid equipment based on Streamer’s innovations and to implement it in the PRC’s market. The company name Wusheng (武圣) was formed by combining two first syllables of the names of cities Wuhan and St. Petersburg in Chinese (武汉 and 圣彼得堡, respectively).
In 2019, an assembly area was set up, and an agreement was signed on cooperation with NARI (南瑞), a subsidiary of the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC).
At its plant in the Leningrad Region, Streamer currently produces a multi-chamber system with an integrated base and supplies this unit to Wusheng. Quality control is carried out as part of acceptance tests at the plant laboratory. Wusheng independently purchases a cast aluminium cap and a mount assembly, assembles, and packages lightning protection devices and then ships them to consumers.
We are proud of this cooperation between two companies and are confident of its bright future.
