EDP LABELEC performed, at the beginning of this year and in cooperation with EDP International and SIEMENS Portugal, in total three training activities covering several topics in electrical engineering to trainees from ELECTRA S.A., the electricity company of Cape Verde. The topics that were covered in the training activities are in the scope of two key areas inside EDP LABELEC (Qualification & Inspections and Tests & Trials):
- Protection relays (and their functions used in primary and secondary substations and application of protection relays testing equipment;
- Metering systems testing in laboratory environment and commissioning of ELECTRA's new metering lab;
- Low, medium and high voltage cables. Cable testing methods (both in lab and on-site) and underground cable location in the field.
All training activities had a theoretical component and on-site experience and had the objective of raise awareness for the best practices in the field and deepen the knowledge in the topics referred above. From these activities resulted an reinforcement of EDP LABELEC’s partnership with ELECTRA, EDP International and SIEMENS Portugal.
