As part of its activities in Europe, CTC Global attended the ETG Symposium – Network Development Conference – held this year in Dietikon, Switzerland on November 8th, 2017 which was organized by Electrosuisse. The one-day conference covered a wide range of issues from regulatory, through asset management to line resonance analysis.
“We received a very warm and friendly welcome at this event,” advised Peter Hughes, CTC Global’s Vice President North Europe. “We also learned a lot, particularly around the tight physical and emission restraints imposed in new-line and reconductoring projects on the Swissgrid network. The concept of ACCC composite-cored conductor is relatively new to the Swiss market, so we were grateful for the opportunity to move the dialogue forward.
Switzerland presents an interesting opportunity to CTC Global. “ACCC is very well-suited to future grid developments, particularly resulting from its exceptional low-sag properties, especially under ice-loading conditions” added Hughes. “We greatly look forward to further dialogue with the key stakeholders in Switzerland to identify where we can support them with their grid development plans. We will definitely participate in this very worthwhile event again.”
