Alfen Elkamo has been selected as a preferred supplier of secondary substations to a group of Swedish grid companies who joined forces in their procurement efforts. In total, 19 grid companies located in the heart of Sweden issued a joint public tender for a 3 year long agreement, which can be extended for an additional 2 years.
Mikael Salomonsson, Strategic Purchaser of Jämtkraft comments: ”We choose Alfen Elkamo as they are a supplier with solutions and applications suitable for smart grids, such as their grid automation solution which allows remote control of substations and which can automatically switch off only the defect part of a grid. This allows us to be more efficient in our operations.”
