Statnett signs agreement with an alliance in which Rejlers Embriq is included
Statnett has signed an agreement with a supply group of which Rejlers Embriq is a member. The agreement concerns the development and management of system solutions. Rejlers Embriq has been providing similar services to Statnett since 2016.
Balancing of the Nordic power system
“We are very pleased to be participating in this delivery to Statnett,” said Ritu Rampal, Director of Consulting at Rejlers Embriq AS. “We have been providing similar services to Statnett since 2016, and our highly capable developers and testers have helped Statnett with projects such as “fifty”, which is an important initiative to ensure the balancing of the Nordic power system,” says Rampal.
“Going forward and as part of the new agreement, our consultants will also help Statnett on projects linked to Elhub, amongst other things,” said Rampal. Elhub is a central IT system which supports and streamlines market processes such as sales of electrical power, relocation, termination, etc. on the Norwegian power market. It also supports the distribution and aggregation of meter readings for all consumption and generation in Norway.
