Technical guidance and transfer on the following skills.

  • Taking measures against power outages in transmission lines and substations
  • Operation and maintenance of power system protection devices
  • Development of human resources education system

 In the Republic of Uganda, a steady economic growth has increased electricity power demand in recent years.

On the other hand, improvement for power transmission system protections and reduction of power outages are required because many power outages have occurred due to faults in power transmission lines and substations.

CEPCO and CHUBU PG are contributing to the development of overseas electrical businesses for the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goals.
