The Austrian DSO Tinetz - Tiroler Netze GmbH will now use the solutions from Heimdall Power to prevent icing-related issues in their power grid.

We at Heimdall are proud to announce that we have been chosen in Tinetz´s call for proposals. Tinetz is an Austrian DSO operating in the Tirol region of Austria, where they serve more than 240 000 customers.

Last year they issued a tender, as they needed a system for monitoring ice- and snow weight on their power lines. After a thorough evaluation process, Heimdall Power came out on top, offering the superior combination of technical quality and price of the service.

Based on the data from the Neurons, the Heimdall Power ice monitoring module will now give Tinetz an early warning about excessive icing on their lines, Further, it will also provide them with precise predictions and the possibility to prevent icing-related outages. Through this digitalization of their grid, Tinetz will therefore be able to identify possible dangerous situations before they cause damage to critical infrastructure.

Since the Heimdall Power Neuron harvests energy on low current, it is ideal for monitoring ice build-up on cold, or even un-powered lines. This winter, we have already helped several European grid companies detect and manage ice and snow build-up on their lines. 

Many rapid and frequent temperature changes have created near “perfect” icing conditions on several occasions through the lasts months. Icing events seem to occur more often now than just a few winters ago, a trend confirmed by grid companies we speak to across Europe. Hence, we are very happy to help Tinetz and many other grid operators keeping this issue under control. 

Vivi Mathiesen, project responsible at Heimdall Power, is very encouraged by the new collaboration: 

“We are really looking forward to helping Tinetz with limiting icing-related issues in their grid to an absolute minimum. Our talks with them so far has been very good, and we are eager to form a strong partnership with them over the coming years.”

Project manager at Tinetz, Matthias Fehr sums up the new project in the following way:

“We are excited to start this new project with the innovative company Heimdall Power, and look forward to our cooperation!”
