CEM, Guangdong prepare for summer surge

Both companies recently held an ‘anti-incident drill’, the objective of which was to improve the responsiveness of both parties’ operation and maintenance personnel in dealing with power grid incidents in order to ensure the reliable supply of electricity. CEM said in a statement that the drill primarily ‘targeted the emergency repair of 220kV networking cables.’ Unlike previous drills, both parties sent their technicians to each other’s site for coordination and operation so that they could speedily identify faults and conduct troubleshooting exercises without delay in order to bring the power grid back to normal.
