Join our Demo 4 Special Workshop: Innovative repowering of AC corridors

15 February 2018 - The EU funded Best Paths project is organising a Special Workshop on 5 April 2018 in Budapest to feature the work undertaken within the project’s 4th  demonstration: Innovative Repowering of AC corridors.


While the project approaches its final phase, the experts of Demo 4, led by 50Hertz Transmission, are finalising the development and testing of several innovative systems, such as:

  • new insulated cross-arms,
  • High Temperature Low Sag Conductors,
  • the engineering of a new composite tower,
  • new methods of live-line maintenance and
  • a sensor prototype  for dynamic line rating.


The upcoming workshop will present in a number of sessions the latest technologies to increase electricity line capacities through repowering existing alternate current transmission corridors. A live demonstration of the conductor car in the afternoon session will also complement the event.


The workshop will take place at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) – Building A, and is free of charge, although registration is compulsory.
