Ampacimon signed an important partnership agreement with Netherlands based company Energy Solutions (ENSOL), to provide on-line Real Time Temperature Rating (RTTR) solutions to its T&D customers. ENSOL developped innovative, software-based technology to monitor and forecast underground cables rating (capacity) by using Fiber Optics temperature monitoring along high voltage cables. This allows utilities not only to better maintain their underground cables (allowing early detection of hot spots), but also, just like Ampacimon’s ADR products for overhead lines, to safely maximize cables transmission capacity. By combining ENSOL’s CTMS products and Ampacimon’s ADR solutions, T&D utilities are now able to monitor end to end “mixed” lines, made of overhead and underground sections, with a single solution. ENSOL’s products range ideally complements Ampacimon’s solutions to offer T&D utilties a range of tools to better monitor and more efficiently use their grids assets. This allows them in particular to add more Renewable Distributed Generation to their grid, at a lower cost.
