The conference will discuss worksheets submitted by specialists, experts, researchers and officials from the Gulf states, according to the official Qatar News Agency (QNA).
Kahramaa in a statement said yesterday that the conference, organised by the GCC Regional Committee for Large Electric Systems (GCC-CIGRE) and hosted by the Public Authority for Electricity and Water in Oman, is accompanied by the 22nd Exhibition for Electrical Equipment, which includes the world’s largest manufacturers of electrical equipment and brings together specialists, manufacturers, suppliers and contractors involved in the production, transmission and distribution of electricity.
The conference and exhibition will discuss the latest developments in the electricity sector, which will provide opportunities for exchange of information and expertise in the field of developing electrical power systems by direct communication between the specialists of the contractors and manufacturers with the decision makers concerned to identify the energy market in the electricity sector.
GCC-CIGRE was established in 1985 to facilitate and encourage the exchange of technical information among the member countries of the GCC through conferences, seminars, research and other technical and research activities to conserve energy resources in the GCC states.
GIS Award: Kahramaa has been awarded the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award as the best institution in implementing the geographic information system (GIS).
The award was given at the 2017 ESRI International User Conference, which was held in San Diego, California (US), and organised by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI).
Kahramaa President Essa bin Hilal al-Kuwari honoured the GIS team for winning the award, Kahramaa said in a statement.
Kahramaa was recognised for its excellence in GIS applications through the development of technologies and solutions, implementation of best practices, the use of the latest GIS technology and spatial data in asset management, ensuring data accuracy and system integration.
The statement added that Kahramaa was able to use GIS applications in data exchange and integration between GIS and Scada (supervisory control and data acquisition) to monitor the electricity and water networks, allowing for prior analysis and planning of the network as well as the introduction of missing data in GIS by connecting with the different state agencies.
More than 30,000 organisations and entities from around the world participated in the award out of 100,000 users of the system worldwide from institutions, ministries, entities and private companies.
