Company DNP Inženjering [Engineering] is proud of all the electrical power facilities it has designed in Serbia and abroad, and especially of its team, comprising young people who are ready to learn and develop in every way needed to meet all the demands that the profession places
Investors recognise us as a serious company that’s ready to respond to every challenge, and that’s why we concluded seven more contracts for wind farms and a very important framework agreement with Elektrodistribucija Srbije during the previous year, points out managing director Jasmina Popović with pride.
You’ve designed electrical power facilities of all voltage levels in Serbia and abroad. Could you single out some of the projects that make you feel particularly proud?
Each project is a challenge in itself, and that’s what makes this job especially beautiful and creative. There have been many challenges, and among the more unusual ones are RP Trebješnica, due to its specificity, TS Gornji Milanovac, as the only facility created within the scope of the World Bank project, TS Priboj, due to the difficult configuration of the terrain, and the elaboration of the idea of concentration plant PRP Vladimirovac 2, as a 400kW plant with a large number of fields.
There are also TS Šipovo in Republika Srpska, which was the first substation we projected from start to finish.
Alongside the aforementioned substation, I would also highlight the projects of 110 kW cable lines installed in Belgrade, due to the specifics of installing them in the city’s urban zone and over Ada Bridge. We have been engaged in the design of substations and switch yards for many wind farms, which we implemented successfully and for which building permits were obtained.
We use the latest design programmes and send our employees for professional training whenever the opportunity arises
You are known as a company that places a lot of effort into employee training, monitoring trends, introducing state-of-the-art technologies etc. Does that mean we aren’t lagging behind the rest of the world and that you can handle all challenges?
I don’t think we’re lagging behind at all in the domain of design, in some aspects we’re actually even ahead of similar companies elsewhere in the world. We use the latest design programmes and send our employees for professional training whenever the opportunity arises. In the previous period we managed to increase our number of employees, to provide everyone with adequate design programmes and adequate training, both in the domain of software and in professional training in the field of electrical energy and construction.
Our team comprises young people who are ready to learn and develop in every way needed to meet all the demands that the profession places on us. Also enabling the company’s good and efficient working performance is the application of ISO quality, which is enabled by the certificate we’ve obtained from an internationally acknowledged certification company.
You can boast of your cooperation with renowned domestic suppliers and the world’s largest manufacturers of equipment. Does that also allow you to advance and maintain the highest level of project quality?
Yes. Good cooperation with representatives of equipment manufacturers of all world brands certainly contributes to high-quality design. We have exceptional cooperation with most representative offices of these companies in Serbia and the region. It is also important that we cooperate with renowned construction companies represented in our country. Fortunately, our colleagues who work in such companies have an ear and good will for good cooperation. The facility ultimately built represents a symbiosis of good design, execution and high-quality equipment, and only the harmonising of all components ensures quality, which is the end goal of all project participants.
