News Release

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.

We are leaving no stone unturned to find more capacity in the power grid. This collaboration with Heimdall Power underlines just that, enabling us to have a clearer view of the actual capacity and to get more out of the existing grid. Initiating this project at such a large scale is crucial for us.

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.

 

This project with Elvia marks a considerable milestone for us as a company. Through this collaboration, we are expanding the application of our technology from pilot projects and monitoring of individual lines to entire network areas. This has never been done before in Norway or the rest of the world, so together with Elvia we are now establishing a new global standard for efficient power grid utilization. We are eager to kick off the project and anticipate improving the utilization of Elvia's existing grid by 30% or more.
