ASTANA – Alageum Electric, one of Kazakhstan’s major electrical engineering companies, offers a wide range of products and services. The company not only provides power transformers to the domestic market, but also exports them abroad. The new plant opened this year will strengthen its positions in the Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan markets.
“There was a demand for 20-kilovolt power transformers in Kazakhstan’s market. This niche of the market was filled by import suppliers, because domestic producers had no such products. Our specialists have successfully developed energy-saving power transformers with improved technical characteristics and introduced them into production,” said exports department director Yevgeniy Bocharov.
“Today, there are two enterprises oriented for export in the structure of our holding, Kentau Transformer Plant with a 36-percent export share and Ural Transformer Plant with a share of exports reaching 96 percent. We do not intend to simply dwell on this. We are already building a new plant (Asia Trafo) for the production of power transformers in Shymkent. The plant will use the most advanced equipment. The launch is scheduled for the beginning of the second half of this year. The plant will create 220 new jobs,” he added.
Bocharov noted the 17.5 billion tenge (US$54 million) project, supported by the Development Bank of Kazakhstan, aims to export power transformers abroad. He added Kazakh Invest supports Alageum Electric to develop its export potential.
With its own dealer network, specialised production bases and warehouses in all Kazakh regions, the company aims to save consumers’ time and money, offering solutions on a turn-key basis. Solutions include design, producing electrical products, supplying industrial equipment and service and wiring and commissioning services.
Alageum Electric represents the interests of the following domestic manufacturers of goods and services with subsequent service and warranty services – PromEnergo Design Institute (power facilities design), Kentau and Ural transformer plants (transformer and electrical product production), Almaty Electromechanical Plant (cabinet unit manufacturer) and Electromontazh (electrical installation and commissioning services).
With this potential, the company constructs and maintains 10, 20, 35, 110, 220 and 500-kilovolt substations and power lines. It has received awards such as Best Supplier (2012), Best Business Partner and Most Dynamic Company in the Machinery Industry (2011).
Alageum Electric’s Ural Transformer Plant is one of the largest enterprises in the West Kazakhstan region, exporting more than 90 percent of its output to Russia. The facility has been recognised by the Kazakh government as an export-oriented, high-tech and science-intensive enterprise with a high production culture.
High quality and reliable products are created using the most up-to-date and high-tech equipment from LAE, Gasparini and Taiss (Italy), Huebers and Stolberg (Germany), Tuboly (Switzerland), Soenen (Belgium) and Prima Power (Finland).
Alageum Electric has successfully finished projects at facilities in the oil refining, non-ferrous and ferrous metallurgy, chemical and nuclear industries. The company has worked on the power supply at the Kazakh President’s residence and Parliament building, constructed substations and the Kum-Kol-Akshabulak overhead line, North Kazakhstan-Aktobe region interregional high-voltage line, Kenkiyak-Kumkol oil pipeline overhead line and others.
