SIEMENS AND ELVIA PARTNER TO INCREASE GRID CAPACITY IN PARTS OF NORWAY BY 2030 WITH SAAS SOLUTION
Norwegian distribution system operator, Elvia, will use Siemens’ SaaS product, LV Insights® X, to automate processes and handle grid complexity in the LV grid.
Siemens’ software has been deployed to Norwegian distribution system operator (DSO) Elvia, with the goal to future-proof its distribution grid management. Siemens’ low voltage software, LV Insights® X, and advanced distribution management system, Spectrum PowerTM 7 ADMS, are now operational and will provide Elvia with relevant insights to flexibly manage its grid and increase capacity fast. With LV Insights® X, Elvia is able to leverage existing data and create a digital twin to monitor the status of the grid, resulting in optimized outage management. This leads to cost-savings, improved grid stability and ultimately, customer satisfaction.
Co-innovation was crucial to the rollout of both products at Elvia. During the process, Elvia alongside additional European DSOs, tested prototypes of the software to develop user-centric solutions that are easy and intuitive to use. This agile approach led to the development of a product that supports modern and robust grid control architecture.
The new SaaS product, LV Insights® X, is part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio – an open digital business platform that enables customers to accelerate their digital transformation easier, faster, and at scale. It provides the foundations for flexible, adaptable, and scalable low-voltage grid management and helps reduce outage times by up to 30 percent. Elvia is able to leverage the full benefits of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio using LV insights® X as it seamlessly integrates into its existing system landscape, including Spectrum PowerTM 7 ADMS.
