World Oil Staff June 16, 2023

(WO) – Pfisterer, a provider of energy infrastructure solutions, has made a significant product donation to Ukraine. This initiative is part of Pfisterer's commitment to providing rapid assistance to rebuild, repair, and strengthen the power grid in Ukraine. The donation was made possible in cooperation with the Service Desk Ukraine, an initiative by German Eastern Business Association (Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft), as well as the Blau-Gelbes Kreuz e.V. and the Energy Community Secretariat.

Due to the extensive damage to the energy infrastructure in many parts of Ukraine, many people are currently without electricity supply. Pfisterer aims to contribute with the product donation to support the reconstruction and repair of the power grid. The products provided include a range of proven solutions for contacting, connecting and branching electrical conductors, which are used at the sensitive interfaces of power grids and are crucial for the reliable transmission and distribution of electrical energy.

Rapid support where it is needed: “We all know how crucial electricity is in our daily lives. Immediately after the targeted attack on Ukraine’s power grid, we knew we had to help,” said Dr. Konstantin Kurfiss, Managing Director of Pfisterer. “We are experts in connection technology for electrical conductors and our products are known for their quick installation, user-friendliness and reliability. This is exactly what is needed in Ukraine right now. We are very pleased that our donation can contribute to restoring electricity flowing locally.”

The relief supplies are currently on their way to Ukraine. The cooperation with the Service Desk Ukraine, the Blau-Gelbes Kreuz e.V. and the Energy Community Secretariat was crucial for the implementation of this donation.

"From the idea to the implementation, there was a lot of work to be done, despite the obvious match,” said Director of Corporate Projects, Santiago Casado. "We would like to express our special thanks to all the partners and the project team who were instrumental in making this campaign a success." Alina Frolova, former Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, expressed her delight: "It is difficult to imagine daily life without electricity. We are very grateful for the donation from Pfisterer, which will help many local people. The company's commitment and passion to support are outstanding!"

Quickly deployable solutions for repair, commissioning and maintenance: Pfisterer specializes in solutions for all aspects of contacting, insulating and connecting electrical conductors at high voltage levels. One particular focus is on pluggable connections that enable extremely fast, flexible connection and connection of equipment such as cables, transformers and switchgear. Energy suppliers worldwide use these technologies to quickly and easily repair potential damage to cable systems.
