NOJA Power – it’s a name known by a select few, but it’s a name which builds the livelihood of all of us around the world. Every time that we plug in to the energy grid, there is a very strong chance that NOJA Power has been involved in bringing that power reliability to you. Reliable electricity is a service which we very easily take for granted, as we are conditioned to expect our power sockets at home to be energised and ready to go, 24 hours a day. The reality is, that power reliability is the result of a partnership between the engineering excellence of the global energy utility community, and the manufacturers of the worlds most advanced distribution switchgear – the NOJA Power OSM Recloser.

For those of us outside the energy business, it’s very rare that we look up to the lifelines of power that support and enable our every day. Out of sight and out of mind, the power distribution network is a modern marvel of engineering – providing energy on demand to entire countries. But maybe today, on your journey to work, to family, or home, you could look up and see the core protector of the distribution networks’ reliability – the humble OSM Auto-Recloser.

To the uninitiated, it is difficult to imagine what is required to guarantee supply and safety of a modern electricity grid, but what is contained in that grey metal case is a technology which has been developed with a crucial goal in mind – guaranteeing the safety and reliability of the energy distribution grid. The technology developed within NOJA Power’s flagship equipment is not only an environmentally friendly and safe way to control and protect the distribution network, but its advanced engineering, aerospace and military tier technology is testament to the innovation and ingenuity that is possible when engineers believe in the good that their invention can bring to the world.

Delivering energy reliably is a major international challenge. The power that flows through each of these pole top reclosers is more than an order of magnitude greater than any of the sockets at home. They are effectively an energy controlling computer, a device which can be remotely controlled and operated to avoid network problems, redirect power flow and ensure reliability of supply for customers.

“Our products silently work as part of the community in 86 countries around the world today guaranteeing reliability of supply,” says NOJA Power Group Managing Director Neil O’Sullivan. “It is something we are justly proud of.”

Deploying the NOJA Power Recloser around the world has seen some incredible benefits, imagine the difference that having 6 hour power outages being brought down to minutes a day would have for an operating business. People need energy to live, to build their businesses, their education and their livelihoods. From islands in the Philippines who now have their first taste of energy, to the nations of Africa being supported in their development through a reliable energy supply, NOJA Power are dedicated to bringing engineering prowess to solve power reliability worldwide.
