Saudi Electricity Company selected AP Sensing for a project monitoring two 115kV power circuits. AP Sensing technology provides not only the thermal profile of the power cables, but also insights into the actual conductor temperature and transient statuses with our Real Time Thermal Rating (RTTR) engine.

Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) is responsible for generation, transmission and distribution of power in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company operates 45 power generation plants and required a reliable Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system for monitoring an interconnection cable from an overhead line to grid station, situated in an urban area. The objective was not only deploying a well-performing system, but one 100% integrable with the existing automation system, providing greater monitoring and control capabilities to operations and management teams. AP Sensing’s solution was trusted for this project and satisfied the challenging project requirements.
