With wins in Europe and the Americas, manufacturer of the world’s only non-contact power line monitoring technology, LineVision, grows global presence and staff
August 31, 2020 – Somerville, Mass. – LineVision, Inc., a provider of solutions to monitor, optimize, and protect the world’s critical energy delivery infrastructure, has continued to be embraced by the European market with recent projects serving four power utilities from its newly opened LineVision Europe office.
The company’s expansion into Europe began with the European Commission funded FARCROSS consortium, announced in March. As part of the vast project, LineVision is working with utilities in Hungary, Greece, Croatia, and Austria to deploy advanced sensors and analytics for transmission line monitoring. In June, LineVision joined currENT, a new European energy trade association as a founding member. Initiated by some of the world’s most innovative grid technology companies, currENT is focused on decarbonization through the use of innovative technology solutions for the European power grid.
European and global power grids face a wide array of challenges with aging power lines, aggressive renewable generation targets, resiliency challenges due increasingly severe weather events, and shrinking budgets due to the recent economic downturn. Executives with LineVision believe the company offers utilities a new more cost-effective and intelligent model for how to invest in the grid leveraging advanced technologies.
“We see Europe as leading in the adoption of grid modernization technologies,” says Gerhard Biedenbach, Director of Sales at LineVision, Inc. “European utilities and regulators alike understand the system benefits gained from our solutions and the impact on grid resiliency, security and efficiency.”
On the backs of several customer wins, the LineVision team has been strengthened with the recent additions of Alex Houghtaling, Vice President of Sales, Electric Utilities, Andrew Oswald, Director of Engineering, Sangeet Dutta, Director of Operations, and Tiffany Menhorn, Director of North American Sales.
