The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planter – for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. – Nikola Tesla

With the privatisation of Philippines’s power sector and the government’s commitment to electrify the entire country, plans are well underway to expand the country’s generating and distributing capabilities. However, on-grid generation is still far from adequate and there is a dearth of qualified manpower with insufficient expert knowledge transfer. Unique to Philippines, plants and facilities often maintain their own generating capacity, in addition to daily industrial maintenance need for electrical equipment and systems, leading to a huge surge of demand for electrical engineers with relevant expertise. Energy and power is crucial in fuelling the economic growth, so is the Power Systems & Maintenance Processes in place that ensures safe, reliable and efficient production of electricity and goods.

Today’s Power Systems, in response to changing business needs and technological innovation, have added functionalities that aid in strategic advancement. Good design & coordination of power protection systems is vital to safety and efficient operation of electrical systems and modern industrial plants; whereas an effective maintenance regime extends assets life-cycle, reduce wastage/cost and prevent injuries.

Led by The Trainer, an international subject matter expert from Toronto, Canada with over 33 years of experience, Salvo Global’s 2-part practical masterclass on “Power System Design, Protection & Coordination” and “Advanced Electrical Maintenance and Troubleshooting” will address all aspects of Utility & Industrial Power Systems & Maintenance Best Practices, including system planning, equipment selection, specification & application, protection, grounding, regulatory conformity and life cycle improvements etc. Delegates will not only gain necessary knowledge to address vital issues encountered in their daily operation and maintenance but also capitalize on The Trainer’s vast\ expertise to pre-empt and improve on existing systems and processes.
