Putting in Opeation a 1200 kV Surge Generator
On 24 May 2018, Izolyator installed, tested and put in operation a new testing equipment — 1200 kV surge generator made by Haefely Test AG.
Haefely Test AG (Switzerland) designs and manufactures systems of surge voltage and current testing, systems of high-voltage alternating current testing, equipment for power cables, motors, generators, distribution and power transformers testing. Haefely Test AG and Hipotronics Inc. (USA) are operating under the common brand Haefely Hipotronics, both being subsidiaries of Hubbell Incorporated.
Swiss specialists of Haefely Test AG arrived to perform installation and testing works at Izolyator plant.
Head of test center of Izolyator Dmitry Ivanov managed the works.
The generator was installed in a 150 kV station, which is a part of Izolyator’s high-voltage equipment test center, to expand technical capabilities of the center, optimize tests and their conformity to IEC 60137:2017 “Insulated bushings for alternating voltages above 1000 V" requirements.
This event became a successful completion of the large preparatory work: in August 2018, Izolyator received Haefely Test AG representatives to discuss modernization of the test center, and, in April 2018, Izolyator representatives had an inspection check-up and participated in the testing of the generator at Haefely Test AG.
Thus, the putting in operation of the new equipment signifies a new stage in the successful cooperation between Haefely Test AG and Izolyator.
