Torino Power’s Power Line Monitoring System (PLM) is providing real-time temperature data to Utilities
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – July 6, 2016) – Torino Power Solutions Inc. (CSE:TPS) (the “Company” or “Torino”), is pleased to report that it has completed the first installation of its Power Line Monitoring (PLM) system on a 230kV line in eastern Colorado. The installation occurred on June 20th and was carried out by Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc., (“Tri-State”) on an energized line without service interruption. Torino’s PLM technology will provide Tri-State with real-time temperature monitoring of its power line under a pilot agreement with Torino.
Torino’s real-time Power Line Monitoring system provides a major advance in enabling electric utilities to maximize the capacity of their power transmission lines. Without real-time information, utilities must use historical, ambient, or “static” temperature data to make their transmission capacity decisions and cannot react to local events and current weather conditions. Torino’s PLM system provides real-time or “dynamic”temperature data from the conductor, that utilities can use to make optimized decisions regarding power transmission. In addition to the PLM system, Torino also provided a web service to remotely access the real-time conductor temperature data.
Rav Mlait, CEO of Torino commented, “The Torino PLM system is unique because of our completely passive sensors that provide utilities with the most durable, easy to install and low-maintenance sensor system in the market.”
Suresh Singh, President of Torino commented, “Torino’s real time Power Line Monitoring systems are a marked leap forward for utilities in terms of data acquisition. We believe that our technology’s unique characteristics and price point will make it an attractive solution for utilities worldwide.”
