History

The idea of creating BPC Engineering was born in 2001. This was preceded by the thorough study and analysis of energy industry development prospects. At the same time, there were serious discussions devoted to reforms in the energy industry. The reforms were aimed at the promotion of new power generating technologies that would provide complex solutions: reliable power supply, environmental sustainability, highly automated operation, and low operational and maintenance costs.

Based on the results of the profound global market analysis the BPC management decided to promote distributed generation technologies that were virtually new to the Russia's market at that time.
