Westermo technology to provide remote substation connectivity for major electricity operator
Westermo is to deliver remote substation connectivity for a major European electricity operator as part of a project to integrate renewable energy into the grid and decarbonise the electricity network.
The energy operator aims to have an initial ten thousand monitoring devices operational, gathering real-time data from the remote substations within three years. This will be used for smart grid applications, such as distribution automation, supporting their transformation to a low-carbon electricity system.
Westermo’s robust Merlin series routers are ideally suited for these networking applications as they meet the requirements of the IEC 61850-3 standard for medium voltage substations, offering the highest levels of galvanic isolation and security.
