Tests of current transformers made by JSC of High-Voltage Equipment Electroapparat
From 4 to 8 November 2020, the Izolyator plant ran acceptance tests of current transformers manufactured by the Joint-Stock Company of High-Voltage Equipment Electroapparat from St. Petersburg.
Joint Stock Company of High-Voltage Equipment Electroapparat (VO Electroapparat) is a manufacturer of 35–750 kV gas-insulated circuit breakers, current and voltage transformers and disconnect switches.
Since 2002, the plant has made equipment for LV switchgear with nominal voltage up to 0.66 kV and 6–20 kV switchgear.
The company is based in Saint-Petersburg.
The tests were carried out under the cooperation agreement between the two enterprises with the participation of representatives of VO Elektroapparat. Dmitry Ivanov, Testing and Metrological Assurance Director of Izolyator, supervised the works.
