The Annual SST Group Partner Forum was Held in Georgia

October 20, 2017

Outlook for the Development of Electric Heating in Russia, the 12th SST Group Partner Forum was held on October 12-15, 2017 in Batumi, Georgia.

The event takes place annually and involves leading industrial companies. The purpose of the Forum is to increase the efficiency of the production facilities and enterprises belonging to the fuel and energy complex by introducing advanced domestic technologies. The event is organised by SC SST, the leader on the Russian electrical heating market.

This year’s concept was “Let’s build a warm relationship!” It manifested the desire of the Group to strengthen partnership relations and to be closer to its customers. This motto was also facilitated by the venue: this year the Forum was held in the sunny city of Batumi.

The Forum offered a rich and varied business program. The Executive Director of SSTenergomontazh, Dmitry Sultanov, in his speech reviewed the integrated solutions provided by the company for electrical heating, heat insulation, and electrical engineering for various industries. The experience of mastering the production of conductive plastics and self-regulating cables — a strategically important task for the implementation of the Russian import substitution program — was presented by Andrei Proshin, Director of OKB Gamma. Elena Andrianova, Strategic Marketing Director of SC SST, delivered a presentation on the trends of the Russian electrical heating market.

Yuri Bazhenov, Head of the Commercial Department at SSTenergomontazh, spoke about the advantages of working with the company on EPC contracts. Since its inception, SC SST has accumulated extensive experience in the design of industrial electrical heating systems. This was the topic of the report delivered by Valentin Sitnikov, Head of the Design Department at SSTenergomontazh.

The event also included a discussion panel, which raised the issues of interaction with the customer, customization of technical characteristics of systems at the request of operating organizations, and others topical issues.

SC SST’s solutions heat more than 10 000 facilities, ensuring their uninterrupted operation and increased reliability. Modern electric heating technologies for the realization of strategic tasks of customers were presented by Sergey Starodubov, Head of the company’s Technical Directorate.

The transfer of its accumulated knowledge is an important task for SC SST. Its founding fathers’ work “Design and operation of electric heating systems in the oil and gas industry” has become the reference textbook for generations of technical specialists. One of its co-authors, Nikolai Khrenkov, adviser to the General Director of SC SST, presented to the Forum participants this unique industry publication, along with a specialized magazine “Industrial electric heating and electric heating”, published by the company since 2011.

For SC SST, this Forum is an opportunity to act as an expert, share knowledge, strengthen partnerships, gather feedback from its customers, and help them meet the challenges of improving energy efficiency and reducing production costs. The company is ready to design and equip industrial enterprises with electric heating systems made fully in Russia, which at the same time meet the international quality standards. SC SST participates in the Russian import substitution program and realizes the second stage of expanding the production of conductive plastics and self-regulating heating cables, working with the support of the Russian Industrial Development Fund.
