Results of implementation of business transformations at KEGOC in 2020
At regular information day of the KEGOC Business Transformation Program: “IDEAS TO GROW ", held in the format of an online conference, the results of the Company's business transformations implementation were announced. Welcoming the participants of the event, Bakytzhan Kazhiev noted the production and financial achievements of KEGOC over the past year. Within the framework of the Transformation Program, the company continues to successfully implement a number of projects in the field of building an active-adaptive grid - the basis of an intelligent energy system. Among the elements of creating a Smart Grid are projects for the implementation of a centralized emergency control system (CECS), an automatic frequency and power control system (AFPCS), a monitoring and control system based on WAMS / WACS synchrophasor technologies. The implementation of these projects makes it possible to increase capacity of the NPS, eliminates the need to perform a huge number of calculation options for the selection of emergency control, minimize the amount of control actions of emergency automation to shutdown consumers and generation, and also make the most efficient use of the available resources of maneuverable generation, and most importantly, ensure the quality of electricity and reliability of power plants in Kazakhstan. “Changes in technologies and processes are not possible without support from the team. Recent studies in the field of ensuring social stability indicate a high level of support for the transformation program among KEGOC's administrative and management personnel, which amounted to 70%, and among production personnel - 74%. These are the highest rates of support among national companies implementing similar programs”, he said. Over the five-year period of implementation of the Business Transformation Program, KEGOC has successfully completed 8 out of 18 projects. Some projects and activities have already been completed and transferred to operative business, some are in the active implementation stage.
