Mongolian engineer wins 100 million MNT


-New invention to secure Mongolia’s energy independence- 

Engineer N.Natsagnyam’s research, “Automated Adjustment for Reactive Potential of Synchronized Generator and Virtual Laboratory NaNyam-AX12” was awarded the “Best Innovation Technology in Science-2013 Prize.”

If the new technology is installed at all power plants, Mongolia can eradicate its energy dependency on Russia, according to officials from the energy sector.

Officials also noted that if the new technology is implemented, the central energy system will be stable even if the plants suffer from faults or voltage fluctuations. In other words, household appliances will no longer break due to voltage fluctuations. The technology will save billions of USD in imported appliances.

Prime Minister N.Altankhuyag granted the Highest State Prize for Scientific Innovation to N.Natsagnyam.

“Engineer N.Natsagnyam demonstrated clearly that Mongolians are fully capable of inventing new technologies on par with leading foreign scientists. Today, we are celebrating an intellectual development and Mongolian potential,” the Prime Minister said.

N.Natsagnyam also said that he worked for a British information technology company for nine years and mastered two advanced skills in technological innovation. He claimed that the skills he learned played a crucial part in the development of his invention.

“I hope that my innovation will contribute to my country’s continuing development to become a manufacturer and exporter nation instead of a consumer nation.”

N.Natsagnyam started at the bottom and was gradually promoted to the position of engineer at an English company. The inventor said that he couldn’t have achieved his goals were it not for his teachers who taught him everything he knows, and asked the Prime Minister to recognize their contribution as well.

Prime Minister N.Altankhuyag said in response, “N.Natsagnyam was internationally acknowledged thanks to his teachers N.Khenmedekh, Ch.Natsagdorj and B.Bat-Otgon. We hope that many more outstanding Mongolian engineers will be trained. The government will support the recovery of Mongolian engineers.”

The 100 million MNT prize is awarded to the most innovative individuals in Mongolia. Previously, scientists S.Tumurbaatar and Kh.Namsrai were awarded the prize.
