Volue, a leader in technologies and services that enable its customers to succeed in the energy transition, has announced a significant tender win with N1.
The deal further strengthens Volue’s presence in the Nordic Power Grid market. Work undertaken during the 10-year contract will enhance N1’s ongoing digitalisation activity.
This will see the development of a consolidated, high quality data platform based upon the ArcGIS Utility Network. Activity will include migrating and unifying data and extending this with a series of Volue’s SaaS products. In doing so, activity will bring full business process support into the hands of users.
The SaaS products include Volue’s Grid Navigator, Grid Planner and UN CIM Extractor. The partnership collectively underpins Volue and N1’s commitment to facilitate the electrification of Europe.
Trond Straume, CEO, Volue, said: “N1 continues to work towards the green and digital transformation of society, and we are delighted to secure this deal to support them on that journey.
“Today’s announcement is testament to our expertise, capabilities, and internal talent, and helps to validate our position as an industry leader in the Nordic Power Grid market. Working towards N1’s desire for data-driven business support, this contract will deliver one of the pillars of its IT landscape that is currently being built to meet the Distribution System Operators’ requirements of tomorrow.
“The contract value, duration and strong focus on our SaaS capabilities, perfectly illustrates our ongoing transformation in the sector. The end-goal for our work with N1 will be to improve their day-to-day operations, increase operational efficiencies, and ultimately, support the use of more intermittent renewable energy on the grid to enable the green transition. We look forward to the start of our work together.”
Daniel Skovsbo Erichsen, Vice President, N1, said: “As a major Danish grid company, N1 recognises its responsibility in driving and enabling the green transition. Having an open, flexible and secure IT landscape delivering easy-to-use and fast services, along with access to high quality data, is a cornerstone in the green transition.
“It is even more important in the transition that N1 is able to operate the grid efficiently, predict issues before they happen and make the right investments in the grid at the right time. By acquiring the solution from Volue, N1 can continue to accelerate that transformation to a more digital and data driven grid company, securing low outages to our customers, easy ways of connecting consumers and producers to the grid and distributing more renewable energy to our customers.”
