ESB International Prepares OETC for the Future of Energy with Expert Training Sessions in Oman 


ESB International was delighted to facilitate engaging training sessions for Oman Electricity Transmission Company (OETC) in Muscat, Oman. This training aimed to enable OETC to prepare for the future energy sector with trusted expertise and solutions from a leading global engineering consultancy.  

OETC plays a vital role in the Oman Energy Sector, as it owns and operates the main transmission network in the Sultanate of Oman. OETC is also responsible for balancing the daily generation and demand for electricity. However, Oman's Energy Sector is dynamically evolving to provide for a sustainable future by adding a large amount of Renewable Energy Sources (PV, Solar and Wind).

To support them on their renewable energy journey, OETC asked ESB International for guidance. We have a long-standing partnership with OETC and have  helped them transition from a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Market to a SPOT Market, including the trading of Ancillary Services and the introduction of Renewable Energy Sources.  

As a utility, we know what it takes, and our expert team can help clients on their journey. The on-site training in Muscat was delivered by project engineers Órla Burke, Andrew Cooke and Kamal Radi and managed by Project Manager Brian Magee. Its focus was on Operational Planning Engineers and Control Engineers and took place over several days to accommodate shift work.  

The training modules included:  

  • Industry and Market Structures
  • Ancillary Services
  • Spot Market Training
  • System Impact of Renewable Energy Sources
  • Spot Market Process - Day ahead through Real-time and Ex-post
