Energy across borders

Written by Etienne Hilgen on 19 August 2021

The European Commission has announced plans to finance a cross-border energy infrastructure by 2050 to support its goals for climate neutrality. But, achieving this will necessitate a significant scale-up of Europe’s infrastructure. Here, Etienne Hilgen, at Ovarro, explains why the right choice of telemetry unit, software, SCADA and simulation systems will be crucial to maintaining this infrastructure. The cross-border energy...

Coteq works om medium voltage (MV) network for remote control

Written by Johan van der Veen on 05 February 2019

Datawatt supplies Distribution automation (DA) stations With remote control, power failures can be solved more quickly. Previously, in the event of a power failure, a technician was sent out to the transformer MV stations in the affected area to find the problem. A time-consuming job. Moreover, in the case of such failures many households are affected, while the problem is only at one or two MV transformer stations. Distribution Automation... Read more
