La Granja Insulators at CIGRÉ World Congress

CIGRÉ is a permanent international non-governmental and non-profit association, founded in France in 1921. Its mission is to develop and to distribute technical knowledge in the domain of high voltage generation and transmission of electricity.

VERESCENCE La Granja Insulators has been member of CIGRÉ for decades. As a World leader of glass insulators manufacturer, La Granja is represented in the working group of ‘Overhead Lines’ by Javier García (Insulators Technical Director).

Every second year CIGRÉ meets in Paris in a big congress where manufacturers, contractors, private and public utilities, researchers, laboratories, etc. have the opportunity to present their achievements, researches, experiences, development plans and new technical solutions. This edition marked a braking record of 249 exhibitors and more than 8,500 Transmission Specialists who gathered together in the largest and most important worldwide forum of high voltage sector. Definitely a pretty inspiring event that shows the current technological state of the market of the electrical energy generation and transmission.

This year VERESCENCE La Granja Insulators was also present as an exhibitor with its largest booth ever. Hundreds of people coming from more than 40 countries of all regions and continents visited our stand, both delegates and visitors, with different profiles such as design engineers, maintenance, purchasing or supplier homologation managers, consultants and experts. The commercial and technical teams of La Granja so as the top management of VERESCENCE Group attended the congress.

Many well-known usual clients and potential new clients showed their interest towards the latest investments implemented in the Spanish plant that position us at the  cutting-edge of technology within the sector, and also towards the latest insulator models developed and commercialized by VERESCENCE La Granja over the last years.

This congress has been an excellent opportunity to attend our clients and stablish new contacts with strategic partners and to broaden our technical knowledge through the conferences of the working groups more directly related to insulators.
