The history of AUGIER

AUGIER : the « start-up » that began 60 years ago that has multiplied « firsts » in innovation !

AUGIER ENERGY - Normes respectées - ICAO

1954 Creation

George AUGIER, a young engineer from Merlin-Gerin, Grenoble and a specialist in electric resin, founded the beginnings of Augier with the revival of his fathers’ electrical repair workshops (created in 1920).

1962 Manufacturing transformer stations

Mr Augier then goes into manufacturing transformers while EDF disperses its centralised remote control system throughout the country at 175Hz. He became a supplier in 1962, after having brilliantly qualified the equipment (175Hz injection transformers) to withstand a short circuit network at 450 MVA!

1966 Epoxy resin

Georges Augier discovers the opportunity to combine the two technologies in which he specialises: the epoxy resin and the transformer. This responds to the growing demand for small waterproof and incorrodible transformers, enabling power supply to distant loads of infrastructures which were created in France during the "30 Glorious Years".
This is the creation of the “HTI” concept (Intermediary High Voltage) and a whole range of epoxy-coated transformers. The first application is for road lighting the Rungis Halls, which will be inaugurated in 1969.
The HTI concept for distributing energy has since been adopted in many countries and on 5 continents including China, where the main roads cross the Yangtze, the mythical river of Shanghai.

1974 Inauguration of Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport

This is the inauguration of the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport after 10 years of work, for which AUGIER created the TSR (Transformer Series Roissy). It is an epoxy encapsulated transformer, with a revolutionary watertight plug-in connection that is totally immersible.
Its end of life will be due only to the standardisation which is put in place in the 90s, with the Americans’ concept of coating rubber and standard of different connectors (FAA).
It will have equipped many French and foreign airports until the 2000s.

1978 Creation of dry power transformers

At the height of the controversy concerning pyralenes, the preferred insulator for liquid-insulating fire-resistant transformers other than oil, (but which releases dioxins at very high temperatures), and with its experience in coating parts in electrotechnical epoxy resin, AUGIER creates the dry power transformers (the coils are coated with resin).
This is the creation of the Green Transformer, or TTAIE (Transformer Tri-Phase Air Impregnated Epoxy Cooling), for 20kV network. There are multiple applications for fire-sensitive places and buildings, public places, supermarkets, etc.
One of the first applications was the powering of the Eiffel Tower in 1978, and this type of transformer will equip many industrial sites (including Nice Matin), public buildings (including the building for the mayor of Nice) and shopping centres (such as the Cap 3000) in the region and throughout France until its production stop in 1996, for reasons of industrial choice.

1985 Electronic protection for shunts

On the strength of its success with EDF (ENEDIS) and its resonant cabinet shunts created in the 80's (equipment complementary to injection transformers), AUGIER innovates with an electronic protection for its shunts, the first on the spark rotary field concept, then an electronic concept of fully static power: it is the IEP (Integral Electronic Protection) which will equip its shunt cabinets until their manufacture stop in 2002.
These IEPs quickly equipped many cities in France, such as Marseille and Nice, then Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Paris, etc...

1992 The mobile post concept

These are particularly creative years, where AUGIER is designing innovative equipment for EDF (ENEDIS), for the airport and street lighting:
- For EDF (ENEDIS) and its nuclear power plants AUGIER created the concept of Mobile Substation in 1992, a solution to the redundancy problems of power grids in nuclear power plants for either emergency or maintenance operations.
The Mobile Station, associated with the Wall Distribution Boxes, transports energy from a back-up network to the usage point. These decontaminated devices are designed to work in difficult environments and equip most French nuclear power plants.
- For the airfield ground lighting, AUGIER continues the airport adventure started in 1974 with beacon transformers, in 1984 with constant current regulators, to finally create in 1992 the first digital regulator of its generation.
This is the THE, designed for and with the Lyon Satolas airport (now St Exupéry) to overcome the drift of analogue electronics and to easily adapt to the most diverse loads. In fact, the specialized microprocessors used now allow precise control of the power components, as well as efficient regulation thanks to an adaptive algorithm, while offering many options that do not require (or little) calibration over time.
It is the CCR that has been chosen by many French and foreign airports such as the prestigious ADP, Madrid and Hong Kong, until its production stop in 1998.
- For the HTI, AUGIER creates new 5500V cells, managed by modern electronics allowing numerous options and protections, replacing the traditional relays and measurement modules. This is the EP9 cell, chosen by the city of Bordeaux for its ring road under construction, and illuminated by a double network HTI in 5500V.

2001 Loop remote control system

AUGIER has partnered with the Italian company OCEM for its new shareholder, and now deploys its STB (Loop Remote Control System) in large scale in Italy, equipping all the main Italian airports, such as Rome.
This system, designed in 1995, was the first powerline remote control system in serial networks, which is a technical performance in itself, and was chosen in 1996 by ADP for the equipment of its first stop bars and their supervision.

2004 Road lighting remote control system with power current

AUGIER carries out a first major installation of its STEP (Powerline Public Control Remote Control System) at the Royal Palace of Janadriyah, then at the training centre camp in Saudi Arabia.
The system makes it possible to communicate between master and slave modules on powerline HTI networks, thus without any additional communication cable. It is used in France and abroad on motorways and lighting networks such as those of ADP, the multimodal site of Dourges, etc ..

2007 The COMPACTO, the first compact lighting regulator and dimmer

Thanks to its long experience in voltage variation to save energy, AUGIER creates the COMPACTO, the first compact and autonomous fully static dimmer-regulator, and extremely robust thanks to an alternative chopping technology working in injection.
Quickly accepted by the market for its simplicity of implementation and employment, it equips many cities and airports in France, such as Limoges, Marseille and Toulouse, a city whose lighting network is also supervised by AUGIER-LIGHTING software.


After the success of the AUGIER-BOX I, a small automation remote control of the lighting, AUGIER creates the AUGIER-BOX II, a true element of connectivity for all electrical installations.
Including a WIFI transmission, GSM / GPRS and a GPS module, it is included directly in the mapping of management software such as AUGIER-LIGHTING, or allows management of related equipment (such as COMPACTO) from a simple smartphone.
It was chosen by the port of Le Havre for the management of its lighting and the luminaries that illuminate it.

2016 The DIAM4200 uses high-frequency hasting technology

Still innovative for its latest constant current airport regulator: the DIAM4200 uses the high frequency chopper technology developed for the COMPACTO to achieve a perfectly sinusoidal wave device, and does not generate harmonics on the network.
The DIAM4200 is expected to be the aircraft technology that will equip the future third runway of Hong Kong airport, where it is currently in qualification tests.

For Companies Our fields of work

Distributing energy in a nuclear power station, supplying energy to remote aquaculture ponds or powering pumps and seismic sensors on oil sites are all examples where technology adapted by AUGIER is the most efficient and secure solution.
