The European power grid is the largest synchronous electricity network in the world and ensuring its smooth operation is no easy task. It requires dedication, expertise and of course teamwork. Our latest addition shares this understanding and is highly motivated to contribute his knowledge to TSCNET Services: On October 1, Adrian Mihai Constantin joined the Service Operations Business Unit as Operations Manager. His main objective in his new position is to contribute to the development of the company’s tools and services and to participate in the activities related to the Clean Energy for All Europeans package (CEP), which will have a significant impact on the EU energy sector and thus on our tasks and responsibilities. This makes Adrian the ideal complement, whose passion is as great as his experience in this field, as his academic and professional background shows.
The 30-year-old Romanian graduated from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest with a Master’s degree in Energy Engineering. After graduation, he started his professional career at the Romanian transmission system operator (TSO) Transelectrica, one of our 14 shareholders, where he worked for six years in total. Adrian started his tenure as Power System Engineer in the Operational Planning Department and remained in this position for almost one and a half years. Eager to broaden his knowledge and skills, he then moved to Transelectrica’s National Dispatching Centre, where he spent four and a half years as a dispatcher. During his time there, he had the opportunity to control the installations in real time and to gain a thorough understanding of what it means to be part of “the largest and most complex man-made machine in the world”, the European interconnected network. He now wants to use his skills to take up a new challenge at TSCNET.
When asked about the reasons for his decision to join our company, Adrian replies: “I chose TSCNET because its values and multicultural environment resonate greatly with me, just like the fast-growing service offering and the ambitions of the company. Here I can develop in my area of expertise and learn many new things. It also makes me proud to be able to contribute to what will be ‘the biggest change in the energy sector’ – the CEP implementation.” In Romania there is a strong saying when you courageously enter into a venture: “To take your heart in your teeth”. Usually you don’t have to be so biting in our work, but given the challenges on our way to becoming a Regional Coordination Centre (RCC) according to CEP, it could still be very helpful.
