Increasingly complex projects at higher voltage levels

For the fifth time, HELB was the sponsor of the HRO CIGRÉ Conference symposium and showcased its developmental journey.

In the period from November 5 to 8, Šibenik hosted the 16th HRO CIGRÉ Conference, which brought together more than 1100 experts of power engineering. Also, numerous papers and professional literature were presented.

For the fifth time, HELB was the sponsor of the conference and presented its historical path and progress. Namely, HELB started working at low voltage in 1990 and over the years began to take on more complex projects in terms of electric power and to record references at increasingly higher voltage levels, from medium to high voltage. Today, it is a company that has become synonymous with expertise in working on power facilities of all voltage levels up to 400kV. Because of that, it is not surprising that we are expanding our activities to the foreign market, where, for example, we are already waiting for the start of a 380kV transformer station construction in 2024. HRO CIGRÉ attendees had the opportunity to participate in a knowledge quiz at the HELB stand, generating significant interest and providing enjoyment and relaxation for many.

Over the three days of the conference, discussions covered not only new technologies, the green transition, and a decarbonized future but also socially significant topics such as the role of women in the power industry. Emphasis was placed on the imperative to construct an electric power system facilitating a swift transition to renewable energy sources, as well as encouraging investments and education of future experts in the field.

Once again, the HRO CIGRÉ conference was a place for useful conversations, laughter and the exchange of business experiences and advices. Also, HELB once again supported this initiative that builds bridges between experts in the power industry, creating a platform for cooperation and innovations.

HELB’s employee with the most air miles: From monkeys in Costa Rica to a cobra in Tanzania

Ivan Rajič started his career at HELB 12 years ago as an electrical fitter. Thanks to his tenacity and ability to adapt to challenging conditions, he distinguished himself as an important part of HELB’s team. Today, his work includes supervision of the installation of primary and secondary equipment at power plants with voltage levels of up to 500 kV. His colleagues have only words of praise for him and describe him as an extremely resourceful person who quickly solves problems, and they also emphasize how their day flies by with him because he always has interesting stories.


The acquisition of new equipment improved production efficiency

Modernization improved the production process for serial production.

For over 30 years, HELB has been manufacturing control and distribution devices in the field of electrical power engineering. Until now, production primarily consisted of tailor-made products. Thanks to this project, the production facility has been enriched with new valuable equipment, further improving serial production.


HELB presentations on HO CIRED 2023

In the first presentation, “Application of the Closed Distribution System model in ensuring the energy self-sufficiency of business systems”, the advantage of HELB’s CDSO service for entities that install a solar power plant on the roof of their facility and want to sell the produced electricity to users of their rented business premises was very clearly explained.
