Protrol is the distributor of the centralized protection and control system SASensor® in the Nordic countries. The company has chosen Locamation’s SASensor®, below explaining why it provides added value.
The SASensor® system is based on two powerful centralized processors, where all necessary functions, such as monitoring, controls, protection, etc., are run as separate software.
Ellevio is one of Sweden’s leading distribution network operators and is committed to digitalize her network. The company has chosen SASensor® to efficiently digitalize her network and be future-proof by design.
Ellevio has chosen Eitech to be responsible for the construction of eight new transformer stations located in Skaraborg County and in Hälsingland. The order value amounts to almost SEK 110 million.
Alliander Heinsberg Netz GmbH is the municipal distribution grid operator in Heinsberg. The company has chosen Locamation’s SASensor® CPC as part of a major initiative to modernize and refurbish its traditional protections relays, with a competitive and future proof solution, which will enable it to cope with the rapidly changing way the grid is used.
National Grid, the UK electricity and gas transmission company, has been using Locamation’s SASensor® system for more than 25 years. Now it has decided to upgrade to the latest SASensor® CPC control equipment, adopting the new HSR communication protocol and migrating the system onto the latest software release. National Grid is therefore benefiting from a…
