Chanwon, Korea  June 8, 2018 — Officers of Russian state-run power grid company ROSSETI visited KERI, showing interests in KERI’s power grid automation and digitalization technology in preparation of the Russian power grid innovation project.

Officers of Russia's largest power grid company ROSSETI recently visited Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI) and requested support and cooperation on the automation and digitalization of power grid in Russia.

Russian delegation consisting of Evgeny Olkhovich (Deputy Director General for Strategical Development for ROSSETI), Boris Ablazov (Deputy Head for Development of Innovation Projects of Technological Development and Innovations Department), Sergey Samoilenkov (President of SuperOx, a superconductivity company) and Ivan Mikoyan (Head for International development)  visited the main office of the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI), state-authorized testing and certification institute specialized in electricity, in Changwon on the 8th and had a meeting with KERI’s management including Choe Gyu-ha, President of KERI to seek the scheme of cooperation.

ROSSETI is a Russian state-run power company separated from JSC RAO UES RUSSIA in 2007 as a restructuring of power industry in Russia. In 2013, distribution company JSC MRSK Holding and transmission company FGC merged to establish ROSSETI. With 15 power grid subsidiaries, ROSSETI owns 74% of the distribution network and 88% of the transmission network in Russia, taking charge of the distribution and transmission for 78% of the power generated in Russia. Through the inter-state grid with over 140 countries, ROSSETI is operating the grid in conjunction with 11 countries (three Baltic countries, Belarus, Ukraine, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, China and Finland). And the number of employees is about 194,000.

“Currently, Russia is pursuing the digitalization and automation of the power grid at the government level, where ROSSETI is taking a leading role. We envy KOREA for the most advanced power grid technology and we know KERI is playing a critical role. The Russian electric power industry has great potential including low-cost fuel. For the innovation of the Russian power grid, the support of scientific technology is required. I hope this visit will serve as an opportunity for mutual cooperation such as consultation or joint research based on the experience and capacity of KERI’s world-class researchers." Olkhovich(Deputy Director General for Strategical Development for ROSSETI) said. 

Sergey Samoilenkov, President of SuperOx, expressed his gratitude by saying: “We are currently testing a superconducting fault current limiter to be installed in Russia in cooperation with KERI, and I am honored to be able to cooperate with global organization KERI, If the project succeeds, it will be a great achievement not only for SuperOx but also for KERI."

“I welcome ROSSETI’s proposal on consultation, joint research, etc., and I will actively cooperate with you to the extent that what is possible. Choe Gyu-ha, President of KERI said.

Currently, in KERI, 6 Russian scientists are engaged in research in the field of medical devices, electrical environments and electric propulsion. In addition, KERI concluded agreements with five Russian organizations including HVRI and NIIEFA, and will extend the existing MOU with ESI for the cooperation for the power linkage of Northeast Asia, which is the state policy. In addition, KERI plans to find promising cooperation items with the Russian organization in the field of electricity and to carry out de facto joint researches if necessary.
