ActewAGL recently hosted government officials from the Rural Electrician Board of Bangladesh at its Civic Zone Substation Acton, ACT.
ActewAGL branch manager asset and network performance Leylann Hinch hosted the delegation and showcased the company’s Disaster Recovery Control Room, zone substation and switching equipment.
“Earlier this year, ActewAGL became the first distributor in Australia to have visibility and control of our entire low voltage network right up to the customer door,” Mr Hinch said.
“Visits like this one are a great opportunity to share our knowledge and experiences with international Government officials to help develop strategies and inform foreign energy projects and policies.”
The delegation’s visit was focused on investigating technologies to develop a rural electrification scheme in Bangladesh. The scheme is being sponsored by the World Bank.
Canberra was the final stop on the delegation’s itinerary, which included site tours of other distribution network companies and meetings with government agencies in Australia and New Zealand.
