Training on Grid Integration & Grid Compliance studies

Proconics, in partnership with CTE Consulting, presented training to Eskom staff on Grid Integration and Grid Code Compliance studies for the Skaapvlei, Paleisheuwel and Graafwater Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) projects on 27-28 March 2023. It was presented online, using our video conferencing facilities in our Midrand offices. Between 83 and 100 delegates attended online over the two days, with Monde Soni, Chief Engineer: Network Planning (BESS, Microgrids, IPPs) at Eskom Distribution joining us in person.

 

The sessions were highly interactive and valuable knowledge was shared between the presenters and Eskom staff.  We received praise from Eskom, and have set the standard for similar engagements. Thanks to Cliff Chidzikwe and Tonderayi Gumunyu from CTE Consulting for making the event a success.
