– ENWIN improving reliability

With help from the federal government, ENWIN Utilities is installing new self-healing grid technology to reduce outages and improve reliability.

The technology enables engineers to quickly identify and locate problems and restore power to unaffected users.

“What it’s really going to do is create automation to dramatically reduce the duration of outages and automatically isolate the actual location of the problem, instead of us having to go out and patrol and investigate,” said Chris Taylor, the company’s vice president of business development. Enwin.

The self-healing grid automatic feeder loop project will cost $1.6 million. The Department of Natural Resources awarded ENWIN $800,000 for the project.

Construction of the upgrade is already underway. The project will focus on the areas of the city that are most prone to power outages.

“In the city center, we’re seeing more reliability issues, so we’re targeting those spur lines that have bigger reliability issues and moving from there,” Taylor said.

The entire project is expected to be completed by 2025.
