Torino Power Solutions Inc. is a Vancouver, BC based technology company that provides its unique, passive Power Line Monitoring System ("PLM") system for electrical power transmission and distribution (T&D) grids. T&D infrastructure is in urgent need of expansion and upgrading due to increasing population, growing loads (due to renewable energy sources like wind and solar) and aging equipment. Utilities globally are investing in new technology to improve grid performance and reduce cost for their customers. Torino’s patented microwave cavity sensor technology delivers real time measurements that allow for closed loop Dynamic Line Rating leading to improved grid resiliency, lower energy costs and bottleneck elimination. Torino PLM creates real-time situational awareness that will help prolong the life of powerline assets and help with the management of future distribution networks that are expected to host high concentrations of distributed energy resources which include distributed generation, renewable energy sources, local storage systems and flexible loads.
Torino microwave cavity sensors are super durable and do not require a power source and are easy to apply to existing power lines. The technology has market opportunities and applications for utilities worldwide as well as oil pipelines, dams, bridges and other major infrastructure assets.
