Open evening at TSCNET premises

17.10.2017

Today, TSCNET Services is the proud host of ElSeC 2017, the Conference on Electricity Security Coordination, in Munich, Germany. On the eve of the conference we had invited registrated participants to an open evening at TSCNET’s office facilities east of the Munich city centre. The event was attended by more than 70 people, among them high-ranking representatives of European transmission system operators (TSOs), security initiatives as well as regulatory and political authorities. The welcome speech was held by TSCNET’s parting Managing Director Siem Bruijns, who used the occasion to introduce his successors as managing directors, Maik Neubauer und Uwe Zimmermann.

At the premises, the guests of TSCNET could experience the workflows of a Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) in a direct manner. They were even given the opportunity to visit the Operator Room to gain an overview of the operational services and to witness a complete so-called DOPT, the Daily Operational Planning Teleconference bringing together experts of all the TSOs.

Videos including the brand-new corporate video and presentations on services and tools gave additional insight into the business of TSCNET, as did the staff members, who were always willing to give profound information. Guests could also give proof of their patience and their hand-eye coordination with a huge, handcrafted hot wire in the form of the company’s name. The enjoyable evening used for new professional acquaintances and inspiring conversations, was rounded up by captivating live music, drinks, and a flying buffet.

08.09.2017

Arturs Krišjānis Kariņš, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Latvia and former Minister for Economics of Latvia, has visited TSCNET Services. Kariņš is a part of the conservative European People’s Party parliamentary group. The American-born entrepreneur and politician is a member of the EP’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy and was accompanied by his advisor Edijs Ostrovskis, also coming from Latvia.

Alexander Küster, Head of TSCNET’s Operations Team, and Emanuel Kofler, Organisational Development Manager at TSCNET, welcomed the guests at the company’s premises in Munich, Germany, where they talked about the growth of the company and its range of services for transmission system operators (TSOs). They outlined how Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) such as TSCNET have established a higher standard of security of supply in Europe and significantly improved the cooperation between TSOs over the last years. In this context, they also debated on ElSeC 2017, the first European Conference on Electricity Security Coordination hosted by TSCNET and co-organised by ENTSO-E, the European Network of TSOs for Electricity, on the 17th of October. This visit was a great honour and a valuable opportunity to debate on Europe’s power grid at present and future developments.

Welcome guests from France

15.06.2016

In changing competitive environments it is essential to keep up with news and developments. TSCNET Services received the visit of an eleven-headed delegation of France’s state-owned electricity company EDF (Electricite de France), members of its so-called CPMI (Comité de Pilotage de la Mission Interconnexion). The CPMI is an advisory board on sustainability and the coordination of transmission skills, internal to the EDF Group. It is directed by Alain La Rocca, Director of the CIST (Centre d’Ingénierie Système Transport, the Power System & Transmission Engineering Centre). One of its objectives is to monitor European regional intitiatives such as TSC and TSCNET Services. Both parties took the opportunity to have a frank exchange of views and opinions regarding the European power grid.

The EDF Group is the world’s biggest electricity generator and is said to be the world’s largest utility company. It operates across all electricity business sectors, from generation to trading and transmission grids. Worldwide, EDF has more than 38m customers and more than 150,000 employees.
