Virtual Neurons from Heimdall Power to monitor key lines in Lithuania.
We are happy to announce our first contract signing in the Baltics! With the help of Heimdall Power´s Virtual Neurons, Lithuanian electricity transmission system operator Litgrid will now expand the monitoring capabilities in some of the key power lines in Lithuania, including ones supplying the second biggest city in the country, Kaunas. Going forward, the insights provided by the Virtual Neurons will enable more efficient operations and higher utilization of the power grid capacity.
Instrumenting the lines in question is part of a pilot project where Litgrid is testing new technologies that enable a higher utilization of grid capacity. This pilot therefore has the potential to bring significant value to both Litgrid and the users of the grid in the relevant areas. More capacity means more feed-in of renewable power and reduced chance of curtailment of wind or solar generation. To the extent that this is realized, this is valuable to the citizens and industry of Lithuania.
