Continuous involvement in large-scale energy projects, the highest level of responsibility, a widest range of technical challenges have formed a unique school of designing and serial production of high-voltage insulating equipment at Izolyator.

The key characteristic features of Izolyator are the dynamism in development of production and technological potential with clear focus on the immediate and future needs of the world and domestic energy, taking into account the latest achievements of insulating technologies and materials research, active interaction with the scientific and technical sector to identify and implement the most effective technical solutions.

Following these principles, the company achieves impressive results — in fact convincingly confirming its world leadership in the production of high-voltage bushings with the most advanced types of insulation.

Among the events of that sort that occurred since the date of the previous anniversary of the enterprise, the following can be mentioned:

Certification of Izolyator high-voltage bushings with innovative RIN insulation for use at subsidiaries and affiliates by the Rosseti Group, one of the largest electric grid operators in the world. The RIN-insulated bushings were widely presented at the largest in its history All-Russian Congress ‘Energy Leaders’ in Chelyabinsk, organized by Rossiiskie Seti.
