Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association, Inc. Key Developments

Torino Power Solutions Inc. Enters into an Agreement with Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc

Torino Power Solutions Inc. has entered into an agreement with Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc. for testing its Dynamic Thermal Circuit Rating (DTCR) technology. Tri-State will install Torino's patented temperature monitoring sensor on a Tri-State-owned energized line in Colorado for one year. Torino's wireless monitoring system supports the use of DTCR technology on congested and remotely located high-voltage power lines operated by electric utilities. The Torino system provides real-time temperature data and other vital information to utilities that helps them reduce maintenance costs and maximize the capacity of their transmission systems. Through the use of DTCR technology, transmission capacity can be increased by up to 30% with corresponding increases in revenue to the utility. Torino sensors do not require a power source and are easy to install on energized power lines.
