MEE to introduce automated T&D solutions as GCC prioritises smart grids

MID EAST POWER SHOW TO HOST GLOBAL TECH BREAKTHROUGHS AS GCC PRIORITISESjpgMiddle East Electricity, the power industry trade platform, will host the global launch of breakthrough automated transmission and distribution (T&D) technology at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from 5-7 March 2019

ETAP, the US-based power technology giant, has announced that it will use the annual showcase to introduce ‘unique, multiple enterprise T&D solutions’.

Shaikh Sahid Hossain, vice-president and global director at ETAP, stated, “The region’s renewed power focus has opened up huge opportunities and the GCC market is poised for huge growth with renewable energy taking precedence.”

“Looking at the growth in demand and the shortfall of supply, the initiatives taken by governments are rapidly increasing with innovations happening and more IPPs coming into the picture,” he added.

He explained that the breakthrough automated solutions, which require minimal supervision, can operate, monitor, analyse and optimise power in real-time and save huge costs for businesses.

APICORP revealed in its report that the GCC is expected to require US$34bn for transmission and distribution over the next five years.

“In 2019, the show is focusing on breakthroughs in the generation, distribution, storage and use of power segments to meet domestic needs and international requirements,” explained Claudia Konieczna, exhibition director – Informa Industrial Group.

“As the industry is in a seismic transformative stage and gearing up for 4th industrial revolution and urbanisation demands, innovation and technology are firmly centre stage. These sectors are being prioritised in our unparalleled three-day education programme, which is essential for all who wish to remain relevant in this new power era,” he concluded.
