Omnisens to monitor the temperature of 65 km underground cable in Southern France

RTE France’s electricity transmission system operator (TSO) is making history in the underground cable world. The project to secure the electricity supply to the Eastern Provence-Alpes region (PACA) includes a section of 65 km which took the record for the longest underground 225 kV AC in the world for this power level.
To detect hotspots and monitor the thermal behavior of the cable along the 65 km route RTE selected Omnisens Power Cable Monitoring system. The system comprises fiber optic distributed temperature monitoring, dynamic cable rating and Omnisens Map (GIS) to visualize the asset.

For more information about monitoring the condition and optimizing the performance of power cables download Omnisens Cobra brochure.
