A journey through the energy world – welcome, Abror!

01.07.2020

Maintaining the operational security of the European electricity system requires the highest level of expertise, ability to make the right decisions in stressful situations, and dedication – especially in our Service Operations business unit. Abror Shamsiev, our new Junior Operations Manager, should be well qualified for this and has already gained experience in ensuring that electricity processes run smoothly and efficiently.

The 29-year-old Abror comes from Uzbekistan, where he completed his basic studies in Electrical Engineering at the Tashkent State Technical University and also started his professional career. His journey in the energy sector began in 2010, the last year of his undergraduate studies, when Abror joined the Coordinating Dispatch Centre “Energy” in Tashkent, which acts as Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) similar to TSCNET in Central Asia. He worked there for a total of five years. During this time, he was also involved in a fellowship programme in Brussels at the Energy Charter Secretariat, which focused on electricity transit pricing in transition countries. Inspired by his time in Brussels, he decided to pursue a European graduate education and in March 2019 obtained a Master’s degree from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in Rhineland-Palatinate in western Germany. Thanks to his experience both in Central Asia and in the EU, Abror has gained valuable insights into the field of energy security and has been able to build up an impressive range of skills.

Abror will now use his rich experience and qualifications to help further improve our services to our customers. He is particularly excited about the opportunity to focus more on energy security issues in Europe at the highest level. Doing this with equally ambitious colleagues “is the cherry on top”, says Abror. The team spirit at TSCNET embodies a working culture that can be described very well with an Uzbek proverb: One head is good, two are better. Fortunately, with Abror we have gained what appears to be a rather clever additional head.
