RTE completes successfully the first stage of Smart Wires Modules Installation
PARIS, April 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Last week the French transmission company RTE successfully completed its first installation of Smart Wires PowerLine Guardian modules on a 63 kV overhead line located in the South West of France. The full deployment of this distributed power flow controller will allow a more flexible operational control leading to an improved quality of electricity for the customers of the area. The installation of the first stage (6 modules) took one day, during which RTE's line men learned how to deal with these new devices.

This application highlights RTE's leadership in utilising new innovative technology and its ability to quickly focus resources on a dedicated project. After a period of users' feedback, RTE will investigate completing the installation with a few tens of modules (up to 1W) on this same overhead line as the full and operational solution.
Christian POUMAREDE, R&D project leader at RTE said "We were delighted to partner with Smart Wires on this project. Their level of customer service and innovation were very professional and accurate."
Smart Wires' Managing Director for Europe, Michael Walsh said, "We are very proud to have completed our first project in mainland Europe with RTE. Their level of insight and openness to change and innovation was amazing. All around the world the generation and consumption of energy is changing. It is becoming increasingly difficult for network companies to respond to these needs with conventional technology. At Smart Wires, we are dedicated to providing new solutions that can be quickly deployed and tailored to efficiently match changes in the power system as they emerge."
