We are happy to announce that Heimdall Power has been selected by the Norwegian DSO Barents Nett for their upcoming project on electrical fault detection and localization.

Going forward, Barents Nett will instrument parts of their 132kV grid with the Neurons from Heimdall Power to do electrical fault detection. The selected area of the grid is often affected by earth fault, especially when weather conditions get though and wind speeds ramp up. Through the capabilities of the newest version of the Heimdall Neuron, this kind of electrical fault detection is now possible, adding yet another services to the wide range of Heimdall Power offerings.

Barents Nett is one of Norway’s biggest DSOs in terms of line kilometers. Operating in the northernmost parts of Norway, their grid consists of more than 3000 kilometers. Given its arctic location, the grid in this area is often facing extremely harsh weather conditions throughout the year. Thankfully, the Heimdall Neurons are built to perform perfectly regardless of its surroundings.

Opening this new use case for the Heimdall Neurons is a great testament to our continuous work and innovation as a company, catering to the needs of both our existing and future customers. CTO at Heimdall Power, Øyvind Teigen, is thrilled to start doing fault detection, with the Neurons soon being placed out in the field. These are his thoughts about the new project with Barents Nett: 


To deliver fault detection to our customers is something we have been looking forward to, as we know it is a service many of them request. We can't wait to get started with this very exciting project together with the great people at Barents Nett.

Barents Nett will soon have the Neurons up and running in their grid. This is an instrumentation that will change their view on earth faults upside down, at least in the short therm. 


We really look forward to work with Heimdall Power on this project. For the first time ever we are actually hoping that an earth fault will occur, so we can localize the fault.
