Financial and commodity services provider Sapient Global Markets has partnered with Tres Amigas LLC, a merchant transmission entity, to develop and sell software technology required to control the Tres Amigas Superstation and other HVDC transmission projects.

Sapient says it and Tres Amigas will help companies with the implementation of software solutions needed to service modern HVDC systems for converting and connecting unsynchronized AC grids with different power levels and frequencies.

According to Sapient, Tres Amigas is planning to build the Tres Amigas Superstation to connect the three asynchronous power grids in the U.S. for the first time. Sapient says that this hub, located in Curry County, N.M., will allow power producers to transmit electricity throughout the country and increase the stability of the three grids.

Sapient and Tres Amigas will develop the software required to control the superstation hardware and provide auxiliary services that support and complement the software package, including the transmission of HVDC, the company adds.

The two companies will license the software to the three U.S. power grids, global utilities, transmission companies, commodities trading houses and any other company that engages in the generation, transmission and trading of energy, Sapient notes.
