Success stories

Summer/Winter Load Peak Management

The French Alps sky resort “La Clusaz” is fed by a single 150-kV line. In the winter season, load increases dramatically, while it is very low in summer.

Challenges & Pain Points

  • To manage this load increase in winter, the grid operator faces a large investment for only a few months use.

Our Solution

  • Installing the Ampacimon solution on this line granted a 40% increase in capacity of the existing line during winter months, and allows smooth operation during winter load peaks.
  • DLR System installed Nov 2012 (just before season start): 4xSensors + Real-time Monitoring + Forecast


  • Smooth operation during winter load peaks
  • After 4 years of monitoring, no reinforcement needed
  • Avoided new line investment
