TenneT ropes in Emerson for transforming power transmission network
TenneT has roped in Emerson, a US-based industrial technology company, for delivering software and services to modernize its power transmission network.
Emerson will help the Dutch electricity transmission system operator (TSO) to streamline and secure the high-voltage transmission network that supplies power to approximately 42 million people in the Netherlands and Germany.
The OSI digital grid solutions of Emerson are said to provide an efficient and flexible platform called Monarch. This platform will assist TenneT’s transition to a more dynamic, complex and interconnected power market, that is presently witnessing significant growth in renewable energy, said the Missouri-based industrial technology company.
To ensure that the electricity supply is balanced with demand and at the same time including more environmentally sustainable energies, Emerson technology will offer better data to enable precise and real-time decision-making.
Emerson said that to improve the operations of TenneT, it will offer enhanced forecasting, equipment outage scheduling, and operational planning capabilities, in addition to an operator training software.
Furthermore, the implementation of Emerson’s big data historian technology is expected to enhance the collection and preservation of asset performance data and system metrics. This will result in high availability and better disaster recovery for the Dutch TSO’s network, said Emerson.
Al Eliasen — president of Emerson OSI digital grid solutions business said: “We’re enormously proud to have been selected by TenneT to strengthen its transmission grid.
“We look forward to a successful project and lasting partnership that supports TenneT’s commitment to deliver a secure and continuous supply of electricity to its customers.”
