T.E. TECNOLOGIE PER L'ENERGIA S.R.L.
Ispired by the spirit and by the organization of Kenyan Flying Doctors, we have obtained by AMREF-ITALY (30/01/1998) to be called Flying Engineers in order to face emergencies on
on the system of electric generators around the world.
We take in consideration Sir Antoine De Saint- Exupéry (Lione, 1900 – Mediterranean Sea 1944) not only the writer of the famous story “The little Prince” but also one of the first flying engineers because he also was one of the first civilian and test pilots. He invented different systems for air navigation for the old company Compagnie Aerienne Latécoère (Sept 1918) that after was Aéropostale and at the end Air France (30/08/1933). In this section of our gallery you can see at work all over the world some of our flying engineers with external colleagues and sometimes in really difficult situations.

In this part of our gallery you can see some special photos from the first Edison D.C. power station in New York, Pearl Street.
The first transformer by Lucien Gaulard.
The first electric motor invented by our fellow citizen Galileo Ferraris and the first transmission line A.C.
Some of the first electric cars from the private collection of INRIM (Turin Italy), some special documents by Rudolf Diesel, and some old gen sets.
We kindly ask all passionate technicians in that field to share with us the old photos so as to add them to the collection, in return they will be mentioned in the contribution.

Since our foundation we always have work with ISOTTA FRASCHINI MOTORI S.P.A. on navy and landed applications.
In 1982 , in 3 mouths, we have projected and energized the bigger power station of I.F. by using transformers with id motors 36ss12.
During these years we have had the possibility to observe and to use reach archives of photos of ISOTTA FRASCHINI MOTORI S.P.A.
So in this gallery we want to underline some documents that symbolized the story of ISOTTA FRASCHINI MOTORI S.P.S. and our.
A special thank to Angelo Borlini, ex – Manager of SARONNO UNIT – ISOTTA FRASCHINI MOTORI S.P.A. for his suggestions.
