Study tours for students of the National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’
On 19 and 26 May 2022, a study tours of the enterprises of the Izolyator Group was held for 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students of the Department of High Voltage Engineering and Electrophysics of the Institute of Electrical Power Engineering of the National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’.
Department of High Voltage Engineering and Electrophysics of the Institute of Electrical Power Engineering of the National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ (Dept. of HVEE of IEPE) trains highly qualified specialists for power industry and other sectors of economy as well as areas of science and engineering that use high voltage and strong electric and magnetic fields. National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ is the one from the largest technical universities of Russia. It provides the specialist’s training and scientific research in the field of energetic, electrical engineering, radio electronics, computer engineering.
The tours became the next activities that is systematically and on an ongoing basis held within the framework of the social partnership agreement concluded by the National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ and the Izolyator Group.
Both tours were held according to the same plan.

Further, Lead Technical Support Specialist Viktor Kiryukhin gave the audience an overview on the types, purpose and areas of application of the products of the Izolyator group of companies.
The CIGRE National Study Committee D1 ‘Materials and Emerging Test Techniques’ was created and operates on the basis of Izolyator Production Complex the part of Izolyator Group.

The report was visually complemented by a visit to the corporate museum, which presents both the centuries-old history of the Izolyator plant and the evolution of the equipment produced, as well as the present day’s innovative developments of high-voltage insulating equipment, regions of product supplies across the globe, achievements in cooperation with leading utilities and industrial companies.
Acquaintance with the century-old history of the Izolyator plant
The focus is on the current achievements of the Izolyator Group
The first point in the tour plan was the Izolyator Production Complex, which produces high-voltage bushings in a wide range of their applications and voltages.
Accompanied by Viktor Kiryukhin, who was giving necessary explanations, the students went through all the technological stages, thus forming a holistic view of the manufacture of modern high-voltage bushings: the materials and types of insulation used, automated technological processes, technical level of production equipment.

One of the brightest impressions was left by the 1200 kV test station
The study tour continued with a visit to the Izolyator-AKS plant, where Production Process Engineer Alexander Filippov introduced students to the production and testing of 126 to 252 kV high-voltage cable accessories.

Izolyator-AKS cable connectors, outdoor terminations and cable joints, which are manufactured and tested on highly automated equipment of the most advanced technical level, aroused great interest among visitors, giving the tour the form of an active and interested dialogue.
Lively discussion of Izolyator-AKS products
At the end of the production tour, a professionally oriented quest ‘Let there be light!’ took place, which was conducted by employees of the Izolyator corporate university and Viktor Kiryukhin.
Let there be light! quest for participants of the student tour
Successful completion of the quest tasks required mainly new knowledge acquired by students during the completed excursion.
Finding the right solution based on the newly acquired knowledge
The task on the electronic design tool was completed perfectly!
The winners of the quest were awarded individual certificates, all the rest were awarded certificates of participation.
An individual certificate was awarded to each winner of the Let there be light! quest
