Welcome to our second edition for 2016.
We have recently concluded our CIGRE Tutorial event in Sydney which saw six of our expert members presenting on a range of technical topics in the transformer and substation areas and discussing the relevant global work taking place in this area.
The Tutorial included presentations and updates from three of our international CIGRE members from Canada, Switzerland and Austria as well as updates and information from our 'home grown' talent. (Click here to see some photos from the event.)
Of note this year is the biennial Paris Session which will see over 3000 engineers, academics and suppliers come together to review the last two years activities, present on outcomes and plan the future work program.
The session in 2014 saw some 3200 delegates and 8500 participants from 90 countries - registrations to date indicate that this could well be exceed this year.
In conjunction with the Paris session, CIGRE Australia is making available two scholarships for young engineers of members to attend and participate. These scholarships present a unique opportunity for young engineers to attend an international meeting, broaden their knowledge base and develop some excellent international contacts and networks. More information can be found here.
More information on this event is available on our website under events and the latest news section, or you can call our office if you would like more detail (07 3310 8838)
On the topic of seminars and conferences, we have firmed up SEAPAC 2017 to run in Melbourne on 14th and 15th March 2017 and the CIDER renewable conference will run in Sydney during August 2017 - dates and times to be advised. Keep an eye on our events webpage and/or subscribe to our LinkedIn site to be updated.
In this edition, we present some findings related to corrosive sulphur in transformers, references to CIGRE technical brochures on undersea cables, and an article discussing the work being completed on reviewing global markets and their operations.
