Omnisens secures 5 year framework agreement for power cable monitoring supply to German Utility, 50Hertz
Omnisens has signed a 5 year framework supply agreement with 50Hertz Transmission for the supply of temperature sensing (DTS) and dynamic cable rating (DCR) systems for the German utility
With one of the most recent grids in Europe, 50Hertz operates the transmission grid of the northern and eastern part of Germany, connecting to the European grid through its neighbours: Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. 50Hertz coordinates the electricity market in the German federal states of Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.
Chosen after an extensive selection process, Omnisens systems will be deployed on upcoming buried onshore and subsea cable projects, some as long as 90 km.
“The secure integration of renewable energy requires more tailor-made solutions such as high-voltage cables. Dynamic Cable Rating enables us to operate our cables more efficiently and safely. All participants will benefit from increased transparency on cable performance.” said Dr. Henrich Quick, Head of Asset Management, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH.
