Oslo, Norway, September 18, 2023
The power grid is facing unprecedented pressure and the need for innovative solutions that can quickly increase transmission capacity is urgent.
As a response, Norway’s biggest DSO, Elvia, has partnered with Norwegian grid-tech company, Heimdall Power, for a world-leading initiative set to quickly enhance the capacity of Elvia’s existing power grid.
Elvia will now use Heimdall Power’s unique solution for system-wide grid monitoring to identify the available capacity in their service area. While Elvia’s operations were previously based on calculations, Heimdall Power’s combination of software and sensors will provide real-time insights into the actual capacity.
Heimdall Power’s grid monitoring solutions have already been in use on single lines by Elvia and 34 other network companies globally. Now, the two companies are taking their collaboration a significant step further. This groundbreaking project will involve the application of Heimdall Power’s solutions across Elvia’s whole regional transmission network spanning 3,200 km.
