About the holding

In late 80s early 90s a group of engineers who later formed OPTEN, were involved in fiber-optic communication technology development. More specifically, fiber optic telecom application on overhead transmission lines was their core interest. In 1995 OPTEN designed and built the very first in Russia FOCL-OHL St.-Petersburg Kingisepp.

OPTEN Holding today is a Russian group of companies that comprises OOO OPTEN, a management company, as well as engineering firms ZAO OPTEN Limited and OAO SOYUZTECHENERGO. OPTEN Limiteds field of application is precise laser as well as traditional mapping, and SOYUZTECHENERGO is a designer for overhead power transmission and fiber optic communication lines (OHL and FOCL-OHL) and a developer of own control systems for various OHL and FOCL-OHL parameters.

Having started in 1991 as a small engineering company, for 25 years OPTEN has surveyed and designed hundreds of thousand kilometers of infrastructure such as overhead transmission lines, main oil piping routes, motor roads, and industrial, urban and forest square utilities in 15 countries worldwide.



OPTEN Holding has introduced a number of unique methods for overhead transmission line and its elements condition monitoring, as well as developed own laser data processing technique. OPTEN is a Russias first company who purchased a laser scanner set and introduced aerial laser scanning technology into regular surveying activities.

Outcomes of our work generally ensure high reliability and performance of OHL, provide a higher level of its efficiency and maintenance based on original solutions developed and implemented in OPTEN.



OPTEN completed another data acquisition stage of LIDAR survey of 2000 kms of power transmission lines in New Zealand for national electric network operator Transpower within schedule and planned budget despite of bushfires in the area of survey.
