We at Heimdall Power are very happy to announce the signing of a contract with the Finnish DSO Caruna. 

Based mostly in the southern and western part of the country, Caruna is one of the major DSOs in Finland. As a company, they have a clear strategy on making their grid ready for the demands of the future. This will be done through, among other things, data analytics and new operational models needed for both network design and flexibility management. 

As a part of fulfilling this strategy, Caruna will now instrument multiple important power lines with Neurons from Heimdall Power. The main use case is to utilize the potential of Dynamic Line Rating, in order to reduce congestions in the grid in the Espoo area west of Helsinki.

Through the usage of the Heimdall Power Neurons, Caruna is looking to get insight into the real-time available capacity, and use this to manage congestions in the grid more efficiently than they can do with today´s systems. This also means higher utilization of their existing lines and the possibility to postpone significant investments.

Insight into the actual grid capacity and the use of dynamic line rating will facilitate consumption from the industry in the area, thereby enabling the industrial plants to maintain a high production level. This is another a great example of how Heimdall Power´s solutions contribute to saving costs, reducing emissions, while at the same time creating new jobs for local communities.

Project Manager at Heimdall Power, Vivi Mathiesen, comments the new international deal in the following manner:
“I am very happy to welcome Caruna to our growing portfolio of partners. Through our discussions Caruna has shown that they are a very forward-leaning and modern grid operator. We are really looking forward to work with them on this project over the next few years."
