Megger förvärvar Metrycom, en teknikledare inom Smart Grid-övervakningslösningar

Megger Group today announced that it has acquired the entire share capital of Metrycom


Metrycom delivers unique network sensor and analysis solutions for online measurements, condition monitoring and fault location using sophisticated detection and prediction algorithms for medium and high voltage networks. Smart grid sensor networks provide information to grid operators, enabling real-time overview of energy consumption, phase imbalances and power flows across the grid including distributed energy resources.

The analytics provide decision makers with predictive analysis of future failures, supporting predictive maintenance practices along with improved detection and localization of unplanned outages. This also enables improved reliability in grid systems year over year, with improvements in the SAIDI, SAIFI and CAIFI Grid Reliability Indexes.

“We are delighted to bring Metrycom into the Megger family. Metrycom's Smart Grid sensor technology is best-in-class, enabling grid owners to gain greater visibility into their grids and to help to operational management and preventive condition-based maintenance, all of which improve grid reliability.”

Jim Fairbairn, Chief Executive Officer of Megger
