Piotr Wojciechowksyi passed away

Piotr is no longer with us. He passed away 29th March.

We lost a colleague and good friend.

Piotr was a reliable and active member in our Study Committee, an expert in his field, he presented Poland well. All of you who knew him privately, knew his good sense of humor and that he was open for all non-technical aspects of life. It was therefore clear that Piotr was founding member of the B2-combo in Paris last year, we remember his vital work on drums, providing the base for the band.

We planned to see each other in two month, in Dublin, Piotr wanted to attend. This was not to happen.

Our thoughts are with his family.

If you want to express your condolence please contact Robert Czyż, his good friend and colleague in B2  r.czyz@elbud.waw.pl

The funeral will be on Saturday 8. April 2017 in St. Mary’s Church, in Warsaw, Myśliborska street 100. The burial will be at the Catholik Cemetery, Mehoffera str. (500 m from the church)

Louis Cloutier passed away

It is with great sorrow that we have to inform you, that our colleague, Dr. Louis Cloutier, has passed away end of February. Louis has been one of the significant contributor to transmission lines, especially in the field of conductor fatigue. His convenorship led to the publication of CIGRE TB 277, 332, and 429 and he is one of the EPRI book authors.

But most of all, he will be remembered for his good spirit, his capacity to reach people, make them work together and reach their full potential.

If you wish to express your sympathy to the family, please contact his son Sylvain at Louis’ Email address: louisjcloutier@sympatico.ca

The funeral service will be held Saturday 11th March in Bromont, Québec, Canada.
