Joint Stock Company Profotech was established in December 2010 by JSC Rusnano. Since then the company has come a long way: from building the project team and creating the first industrial samples (2010), beginning of industrial samples' manufacturing (2011) and commencement of pilot installations (2012) – to serial production (2014), certification of the whole product range (2015) and the start of commercial sales (2016 to the present day).
Profotech is the only Company in Russia that has its own ‘know-how’ both for production of the final equipment and for creating its own magnetic-sensitive optical fiber. Thus, we own the key technology for our manufacturing process. This special optical fiber was developed by employees of academic Institute of Radio-engineering and Electronics who have later joined the Profotech team.
Profotech team sees our mission in development and promotion (both in Russia and worldwide) of digital innovative technologies for measurement, as well as in creating technological basis for smart grids.
Goals of Profotech:
- To provide tools for digital innovative measurements of current and voltage, building smart grids and digital substations
- To win the leading position in the market of intelligent solutions for electric power industry
- To satisfy the growing demand for innovative products of our Company both in Russia and abroad
Profotech’s product line consists of unique fiber-optical instrument transformers for measuring of current and voltage. It is the modern alternative to traditional electromagnetic transformers. Moreover, it provides possibility to perform step-by-step transition to the Digital substations.
Profotech products create digital informational basis for assembling Smart grids: it serves as the single source of data for power meters, control and protection devices on every Digital substation, in full compliance with IEC 61850 standard.
The field of application of Profotech products includes electric power objects such as electrical grids, power generation sites and power-demanding manufactures.
Profotech’s technology allows to drastically increase measurement accuracy and enables transitioning to the new level of the measurements that uses 100% digital signal processing. Introduction of optical technologies into the field of relay protection and automation ensures the fastest and most accurate operation of these systems. All products of our company are GOST-certified and registered in Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (Rosstandard). Our equipment has passed numerous pilot tests at electric power substations and power-consuming plants.
Profotech team consists of high-level professionals including engineers and scientists. Our employees constantly upgrade their qualification, take part in trainings and actively promote Smart grid technologies, both in Russia and overseas. Our personnel also participates in the work of international standard committees and makes reports at the conferences.
Profotech’s office and production facility are both located in Moscow, at the territory of hi-tech development area – Technopolis Moscow.
