Keeping the power grid safe from solar storms
Transpower is playing a key role is determining how best to protect vulnerable power grids from devastating geomagnetic storms caused by extreme solar activity.
Protecting our critical equipment
Robots: our substation eyes and ears
In partnership with Massey University, we're developing a substation robot service to provide rapid, real time situational awareness at some of our most remote sites. We are using a 'Minimum Viable Product' approach to mitigate risks and confirm platform service early.
A step change to climb detection
Small lightweight detectors based on low power, low bandwidth Internet of Things (IoT) devices promise to deliver simple, reliable detection so we can quickly respond to climbing incidents.
The power of cognitive search
Following the success of a machine learning/artificial intelligence (AI) innovation sprint in 2017, we see the potential for AI to search, extract and collate expert information for engineers and service providers working on our Grid.
Kanban breaks the backlog
Over the last year, our Enterprise Services Support (ESS) team has used Kanban to significantly reduce incident turnaround times.
