René Smeets (Innovation Engineer at KEMA Labs) received the prestigious CIGRE Fellow Member Award because of the leadership shown in innovative T&D equipment related working groups such as those on HVDC switchgear, high-voltage vacuum circuit breakers and SF6-free switchgear.
The CIGRE Fellow Award, which is attributed for providing a lead technical role in the study committees, was presented by Michel Augonet, President of CIGRE, at the opening session of the CIGRE conference in Paris, at the grand Amphitheatre, attended by over 1,000 delegates.
The ceremony represented another successful moment of our participation to the 2022 CIGRE Technical Exhibition, in which the KEMA Labs experts met several customers and presented our latest innovative services.
In this respect, we will be at our booth 314, on the 3rd floor of the Palais des Congrès, where you will be able to meet our experts.
There, you will be able to learn more about how we recently extended our HVDC testing capabilities, how we implemented our E-mobility services, and about our latest services related to rotating electrical machines, power transformers and reactors, T&D equipment, insulated cables, overhead lines substations, dc systems and power electronics, protection and automation, information systems and telecommunication.
