Locamation, a Netherlands-based developer and supplier of smart grid automation solutions, has entered into an agreement to conduct a pilot with Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSE), one of the largest power distribution networks in the U.K.

The year-long pilot will equip one primary substation with Locamation's SASensor HMV solution, which the company says enables measurement and monitoring of grid patterns, protection, and control at a medium-voltage level.

“SSE has chosen Locamation's SASensor technology, as it has the potential to provide many advantages over traditional substation protection solutions. Both capital and operational expenditure costs can be reduced,” says David MacLeman, SSE's manager of future networks and policy research and development.
