What directions do we develop and why?
ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION DIRECTION
Many electrical assembly companies function at the Russian market, but many of them work just several years and come to bankruptcy. Most often the reason of bankruptcy is absolutely banal – shortage of orders. In our company we support departments of marketing, sales and tenders, which provide us with a possibility to receive a stable flow of orders. These orders are unaffected by economical situation in the country or personal relations of founders.
A small number of companies can boast with own group of construction electricians. Today, our company has it own functioning electrical installation subdivision. Our supply service has a car park, instrumentation pool and own warehouse territory. Each performer of electrical installation works has a tablet computer. Using it, our employee may find any necessary information in the Internet and form an order of materials for our supply service. The project of electric supply is also available in the electronic form. We try to make work of our employees maximally optimized and to simplify processes introducing modern technologies.
Our work is optimized
The work in all laboratories which exist at the present moment in Russia is organized as follows: engineer-measurer arrives to the object and performs necessary measurements. All results are recorded in the notebook. At the end of works at the object, the measurer goes to the office and starts to prepare a report. Preparation of the report occupies from 4 hours to several weeks, depending on the difficulty of an object.
Engineer-adjuster of Quadro Electric arrives to the object and performs measurements. All results are entered into the special program, written for a Blackberry tablet computer. The report is formed automatically and may be sent for printing right to the printer through wireless network. Our development provides a possibility to save the time necessary for measurement in more than two times. Therefore our services cost cheaper than services provided by competitors. Our competitors call it dumping, but it is a banal optimization of working process.
ENERGY SAVING AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
We were the first
The Quadro Electric Company won the first state order in the North-Western Federal district for performing an obligatory energetic inspection in accordance with Federal Law No 261-FZ "On Energy Saving and Increasing Energy Efficiency…" In the course of electronic auction our company proposed the lowest price. Those times, nobody in the country had a clear understanding how to realize inspection, and above all how to fill the energetic passport. We weren't afraid to become pioneers in this area, and now our energy service subdivision performs tens of procedures connected with energy audit annually.
The market of energy saving is still at the stage of originating in Russia. In 2011, founders of Quadro Electric visited the USA as a part of working group to study American experience in the area of energy saving. This voyage gave us a huge advantage over other companies in Russia. Because our law on energy saving is a mirror reflection of the American law.
Energetic passports are prepared by professionals in our company. All prepared passport are successfully sent to the Ministry of Energy of Russia by our self-regulating organization. Now we start pilot projects connected with energy service – we introduce energy saving solutions for our customers receiving money from economy.
POPULARIZATION OF POWER ENGINEERING AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE
During the first year of our work it became clear that the electric power market suffers from lack of personnel. The question is not only in deficit of specialists with higher education, but specialists with secondary special education. We decided not to wait solution of this crisis by the state and started to act ourselves.
We keep our own informal blog about electricity, where present electric current as not a physical process in the conductor but a charge of energy flying from strings of an electric guitar. We explain the construction of electric chair and provide photos taken during the voyage to the USA. We provide commentaries from our objects and demonstrate that power engineering is a prestige and interesting sphere. Even when we met with the Governor of St. Petersburg in summer 2012 we asked him about attraction of young people to receiving technical specialties.
The founders and employees of Quadro Electric help young people to start their business. Within five years of our company existence we made reports at tens of panel discussions, workshops and demonstration lectures. We tell stories of our employees' successes in the special section at our web-site, inspiring them to devote their life to power engineering.
