Technical Collaboration with Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand
Chubu Electric Power Grid has been promoting the sharing of the latest technologies and solutions to various power system network issues. We are engaging in technical exchanges with power utilities in many countries through the formation of technical partnerships that utilize technologies developed in Japan.
The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and Chubu Electric Power Grid have established a mutual agreement to share new technologies, knowledge, experiences, and related information on transmission system technology.
We are seeking strategic partners for mutual technical exchange of the latest technology and information.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Dispatches Experts to Seminar in Egypt
In January 2018, Chubu Electric Power Grid sent two experts to a seminar on substation maintenance, which was held in Cairo, Egypt, where they delivered a talk to engineers from the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company. The three-day seminar was attended by 108 people who engaged in lively question-and-answer sessions as well as exchanges of views. The seminar was also attended by the Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Dr. Mohamed Shaker El-Markabi who commented that he hoped Egypt would be able to learn more about Japan’s wonderful maintenance technologies. In the future as well, Chubu Electric Power Grid will leverage technologies which we have developed in our domestic operations to actively expand exchange, collaboration, and consulting services to resolve issues that other companies face in countries around the world.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Holds Training Program for Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company Personnel
In December 2018, Chubu Electric Power Grid welcomed 12 engineers from the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company and provided lectures on substation maintenance as well as a tour of a substation facility. This training program was administered by the Association for Overseas Technical Cooperation and Sustainable Partnerships (AOTS), which had been commissioned by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to conduct the program in support of Japan’s global infrastructure expansion (Chubu Electric Power Grid was responsible for three days of the full two-week session.) Chubu Electric Power Grid will make use of the technologies that we have developed in Japan and put them to use for international cooperation.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Provides Training and Facility Tour to SP PowerGrid (Singapore)
In April 2019, Chubu Electric Power Grid welcomed 13 engineers from SP PowerGrid and conducted a workshop during which we showed the participants how the command operations sheet is used in substation operations and the roles that each person is responsible for during on-site work at substations. The workshop also covered how work is handed over between crews, hazard prediction activities, and other facets of operations. In addition, the engineers toured group affiliate TOENEC Corporation’s Safety Creation Center where they were able to gain a deeper understanding of efforts being made across the entire Chubu Electric Power Group to enhance safety awareness.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Actively Participating in CIGRE Activities
Several Chubu Electric Power Grid personnel from each division participate in biennial Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques (CIGRE) Paris conferences as well as symposiums and colloquiums where they present papers, exchange views with engineers working at electric power utilities in other countries, and collect information. In addition, Chubu Electric Power Grid personnel also participate as official members on a variety of CIGRE working groups where they hold discussions with electric power engineers in other countries and prepare technical literature.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Participates in CIGRE-IEC 2019 Conference on EHV and UHV (AC and DC)
In April 2019, Chubu Electric Power Grid participated in the CIGRE-IEC 2019 Conference on EHV and UHV, which was held in Hakodate, Hokkaido. Our personnel presented papers, set up a corporate booth, and engaged in technical discussions in working groups.
This conference was jointly sponsored by the Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques (CIGRE) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Over 300 experts gathered from 32 countries to discuss power transmission and distribution technologies.
Chubu Electric Power Grid Participates in CEPSI 2018
In September 2018, Chubu Electric Power Grid attended the Conference of the Electric Power Supply Industry (CEPSI) 2018, an international conference held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where we presented papers and set up a corporate exhibition booth.
The conference was sponsored by the Association of the Electric Supply Industry of East Asia and the Western Pacific (AESIEAP) and addressed a broad range of topics relating to electric power technologies.
In our paper presentations, Chubu Electric Power personnel gave a report on our proprietary technology for diagnosing power cable abnormalities, which prompted a lively discussion with engineers from other countries.
Chubu Electric Group companies CHUBUSEIKI and Aichi Electric Co., Ltd. also set up corporate booths where staff were able to provide publicity about the Chubu Electric Power Group’s engineering initiatives to the more than 230 visitors, including representatives of Tenaga Nasional, Malaysia’s national electricity company.
