It’s been 70 years since the founding of the National Committee of the International Council on Large Electric Systems CIGRE in Serbia. The 35th Conference was held from October 3rd to October 8th, 2021 on Zlatibor, a famous tourist destination in Serbia.
We had the honor and pleasure to be sponsors of the opening ceremony and to present two paperwork at the conference: Impact of audible noise due to corona effect on design of overhead lines (Mihailo Antonijević, Miloš Golubović) and Application of publicly available geodetic data in the early stages of high-voltage transmission line design dalekovoda (Jelena Jonić, Uroš Radosavljević, Miloš Golubović).
Miloš Golubović participated as a panelist at the MEF Energy Forum 2021 in Skopje.
The MEF Energy Forum 2021 (mef.mk) was held on 13 and 14 September 2021. The forum was attended by numerous representatives of governments in the region, including Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, as well as representatives of local governments, embassies to Northern Macedonia, numerous private and public companies in the energy sector, investors from all over Europe, European Union institutions, etc.
General Manager of E&E represented our partner Hill International Inc. at Panel 5: Future Development of Renewable Energy Sources in the Region. At the panel, he discussed especially about the importance of strategic investments in transmission network infrastructure for successful development of large scale renewable energy projects.
On 06 September 2021, a new company ELEM & ELGO SWEDEN AB has been registered in Sweden, with the 100% founding capital by ELEM & ELGO d.o.o. Belgrade. The objective of the establishment of the new company is development of our business activities in Sweden and intensified presence at the Swedish market. We hope to grow our new company in the same way we are doing in Serbia, following our business principles and positive business culture and, at the same time, applying the positive business practice of the Swedish market.
It is a great honor and pleasure to support our young and talented colleagues from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Belgrade University.
In the finals of the world’s largest university competition in the field of energy efficient solutions “International Future Energy Challenge 2020” held at the University of Aalborg (Kingdom of Denmark), the ETF’s H-Bridges team won second place and “The Outstanding Performance Award”.
In July 2020, a development of new strategic project for the Serbian transmission system commenced by initiation of the Pre-Feasibility Study. The beneficiary of the study is the Serbian Transmission System Operator Elektromreža Srbije JSC (EMS) and the project is implemented by IPF7 Consortium lead by Hill International. The grant is provided by the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF). The IFI is German Development Bank (KfW). Our E&E team is responsible for the project management and technical (overhead lines and substation) component.
The subject assignment is focused on the assessment of the following planned transmission infrastructure developments, being a part of the North CSE Corridor Project:
These components are clustered together in the North CSE Corridor Project, considering that they represent significant bottlenecks or missing links on the major 400kV corridor from eastern Romania to the Belgrade region in Serbia.
Among other potential benefits of the project, its implementation should significantly reduce current congestions in the regions of Belgrade and South Banat and enable future connections of RES (renewable energy sources), especially wind farms in the region of South Banat.
It is planned that the Pre-Feasibility Study, together with the Conceptual Design of overhead lines and substation and Preliminary ESIA Study would be completed by May 2021.
We are pleased to be a part of such an important project and assist in its successful development.
Changed working conditions in our company, due to extraordinary circumstances, have made the job difficult, but not impossible.
We praise everyone for the effort!
