Streamer devices protect overhead lines of Vietnam
At the beginning of December about one hundred of Streamer Line Lightning Protection Devices (LLPDs) SAd35z was shipped to Binh Son Electric corp. Distribution Company, cooperating with Streamer for more than three years. Vietnamese partner acquired innovative lightning protection devices for its customer, which is going to install them on its distribution lines within a month.
In 2016 experts of Streamer completed development of screen-type LLPD at voltage of 35 kV on polymer and metal basis. The Company puts a special hope on the second modification of the device. Perspectives of SAd35z on steel basis are justified by the fact that they have less requirements for the terms of installation of power line support from the point of view of production.
In 2016 LLPDs SAd35z were installed in Malaysia and Germany as a pilot project. It is expected that results of Streamer LLPDs development in Vietnam would contribute new data to existing reports on devices performance in the areas with increased lightning activity.
