Since 2002, I have been working as an independent certified senior designer of MV and LV electrical power systems up to 35 kV with extensive professional experience of designing for various industries, of MV/LV transformer stations, technological and medical installations, photovoltaic systems, etc.

After my graduation from the Technical University of Ostrava with a specialization in Power Engineering in Industry, I worked the first eight years of my career as a designer in contractor companies with close connections to field installations, switchboard constructions, etc. So I quickly expanded my academic expertise with extensive practical experience.

Up to now, I have made over 800 designs in my career, from really small ones to big ones. The most interesting of them were, for example, cooperation at the Tokamak experimental system upgrade in Prague; cooperation at the huge Amazon Czech distribution center; food, foundry and water industry installations; the redrawing of ePLAN projects for Russland, for Austria, etc.

On the international market, I would like to offer my knowledge of ePLAN Electric P8. I also have my own license for this software in the Select version with an active service contract, so that my clients usually don’t have to pay extra for buying additional licenses or for a software subscription. I also have experience with large projects (e.g. of 1,000+ drawn pages).

The second area where I am offering my services on the international market is for those looking for design or consultation services in the area of electrical power systems in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. I am a certified, authorized engineer in both of these countries with outstanding knowledge of the related legislation and technical standards. Since 2013, I have been also giving public lectures about electrical power system design in the Czech Republic.

I love my work and I love power engineering! I am open to new challenges and I always care about my client’s satisfaction, where my biggest market advantage is my expertise and reliability in meeting the necessary project terms and deadlines.
