Even faster fault location and better operational reliability
Safegrid’s Intelligent Grid System helps Sallila detect network faults faster and react to them even more efficiently than before. Real-time alarms and accurate fault location enable fast and efficient action, which improves network reliability and minimizes downtime for customers.
Sallila Sähkönsiirto will deploy GrayFox™ sensor units for cable network monitoring, which will communicate wirelessly with the cloud-based GridGuardian™ back-end system.
Matti Hällfors, Development Manager at Sallila, says: “The main goal of Sallila is to maximize the reliability of our distribution network. Safegrid’s system helps us to improve operational reliability and serve our customers even better. In the future, the system will also provide us with additional information about the status of the network, enabling, e.g., preventive maintenance of network assets, which reduces the number of faults, prolongs the life of the equipment, and lowers costs.”
Jussi Hakunti, CEO of Safegrid Oy, continues: “Sallila is known for its reliable network, and we look forward to helping Sallila develop operational reliability and network performance even further. Feedback from a trusted operator like Sallila is essential to us in the further development of the IGS system.”
Hällfors continues: “With the IGS system, we will be able to prevent power outages and minimize the duration of outages when they occur. In addition, the system streamlines our operations. In this way, we can offer our customers even better service and also keep our prices reasonable.”
After the trial period, Sallila and Safegrid intend to expand the use of the system to cover an increasing part of Sallila’s distribution network.
