Company's History

ZAO NPP ENERGIA

ZAO NPP ENERGIA was established in 1992 by the graduates of Electric Transport Department of Moscow Power Engineering Institute (MPEI Technical University). Company’s team continued with development and launching production of new generation semiconductor converters, based on research by specialists of MPEI Electrical Transport Department in 1970s. Company’s specialists collaborated with scientists N. A. Zagaynov, I. S. Yefremov, M. G. Tregubenko, B. S. Finkelstein and others.

In the beginning, ENERGIA cooperated with ОАО “Zaporozhsky elektroapparatny zavod” and Sverdlovsk Electromechanical Plant. Gradually, our company developed its own production. Initially, products included diagnostic and valve control units for rectifiers and also diagnostic instruments like diode tester. In 2006, V-TPED series rectifier was designed and launched into production. It had basically new construction offering a number of functional advantages.

The company continues its research in the field of modern test equipment that facilitates maintenance of traction substation equipment and improves its quality. In 2004, after numerous tests PRUS calibrator for adjustment of fast acting circuit breakers was launched into production as well as other systems. Weight of this unique unit is lower than 30 kg, ensuring operational mobility. The unit is capable to generate currents up to 8000A.

ENERGIA has considerably enlarged its area of activity. Besides of deliveries for tramway and trolley-bus substations, our company began to supply equipment for Moscow monorail train system and Moscow Subway. As of end of 2011, ENERGIA manufactured over 50 items.

Besides, ENERGIA has been designing power supply systems and units for over 15 years. All the equipment undergoes tests and is certified. The company is a member of self-governed organizations in the field of designing and construction of electric transport power supply facilities. ENERGIA has a production facility and special high-voltage laboratory certified by ROSTEKHNADZOR that carries out tests of electric equipment insulation. In 2006, our production process was certified according to national quality management standard – GOST R ISO 9001 (ISO 9001).

For 15 years, our company has put into operation over 250 converter units for tramway, trolley-bus, subway and monorail train lines, about 200 diagnostic units and over 300 various AC and DC power supply units.

FEBRUARY

New trolley-bus line is launched in Kursk. Two traction substations with ENERGIA equipment are put into operation.

1st stage of traction substations reconstruction project is completed in Moscow. Our company delivered and adjusted equipment for more than 40 substations.

2011

2011

JANUARY

First in Russia underground traction substation for urban electric transport is put into operation. The company designed and launched into production the series of KRU-600 small-size switchgears having front wall width 600mm for implementation on traction/lowering substation No.160. Though switchgear has considerably smaller size, it maintains full functionality, including integrated current/time protection and automatic reclosure system with short circuit tester.

NOVEMBER

Equipment package is delivered for power supply of new trolley-bus line in Ryazan.
