Fingrid is looking for new ideas for condition monitoring of transmission grid post insulators and temperature monitoring for grid components
Does your company have a great idea or solution, which you would like to pilot in collaboration with Fingrid? Do you yearn for new business opportunities and world class expertise to help in commercialising your idea? We are announcing a search for partners for companies looking for new condition monitoring business.
Fingrid, in collaboration with Spinverse, announces a partner search for companies, corporations and teams of all sizes looking for partnerships and new business in the field of condition monitoring. Fingrid’s cost-effectiveness and network reliability have been ranked among the best in international comparisons. However, activities are being developed continuously with the aim of being international pioneers.
Maintenance is in the transition towards a condition- and risk-based maintenance model. The transformation seeks to ensure a high level of operational reliability, more efficient usability of the power grid and optimal allocation of maintenance work. We want an enhanced knowledge and access to the condition of the hardware. The change requires new measurement methods and practices that we are now looking for.
Fingrid and Spinverse are now looking for new cost-effective project ideas for assessing and monitoring the condition of post insulators used in the power grid’s electric stations, as well as continuously monitoring the temperatures in power grid components.
Companies must be able to clearly describe the usability of the idea for Fingrid and its feasibility. The criteria for evaluating the application are the effectiveness of the idea, technology readiness level and the applicant’s credibility, such as references and know-how.
Based on the proposals, we select up to 10 actors, with whom project ideas will be further developed in cooperation with the Fingrid people. Subsequently, companies will present their ideas to Fingrid, who selects the winners.
The search for applicants is carried out in cooperation with Spinverse.
Post insulators and a detailed problem are described in more detail in the enclosed material (in Finnish).
The temperature measuring project is described in more detail in the enclosed material (in Finnish).
