Top world experts in High Voltage Equipment and Overhead Lines to attend CIGRE symposium in New Zealand

Every odd numbered year, CIGRE holds a couple of international Symposiums. In September 2013 we will host the CIGRE Symposium in New Zealand.

Two international CIGRE Study Committees A3 (HV Equipment) and B2 (Overhead Lines) will hold their annual meetings in Auckland in conjunction with the Symposium. This means that the top world experts in High Voltage Equipment and Overhead Lines will be in Auckland. The Symposium will focus on HV Equipment and Overhead Lines but will be supported by Study Committees B1 (Insulated Cables), B3 (Substations), A2 (Transformers), C6 (Distribution Systems and Dispersed Generation), and D1 (Materials and Emerging Test Techniques).
