Bandweaver, leading provider of fiber optic monitoring sensors and integrated technologies, is proud to be attending Elecrama in support of their key regional partner, Power International from 18-22 January 2020. Bandweaver’s Managing Director, Richard Kluth will be at the event on stand H4A7 alongside the Power International team, taking place at India Expo Mart, NCR India.

The Indian energy market continues to grow at an incredible pace, in terms of both demand for electricity and capacity for production. However, due to inefficiencies in the  transmission network, at least 10% of energy produced is wasted2. Whilst the renewable energy sector is currently growing at a rate of 24%, the supporting infrastructure is only growing at 7%1. This under-utilised capacity directly impacts huge key companies and their projects such as Jindal Power, Essar Power and MB Power to name a few2.

With the support of its local partner, Bandweaver’s smart technologies are helping to combat these challenges. Utilising Real Time Thermal Rating (RTTR), Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) and Third-Party Interference (TPI) detection, Bandweaver’s solutions are providing substantial efficiencies by increasing cable capacity and reducing downtime.

Bandweaver selected Power International as their partner in the region based on their strong reputation and expertise in DTS and DAS technology applications. Throughout India, Power International’s technically accomplished engineers and support staff are well positioned for the delivery of Bandweaver’s solutions throughout the Indian energy transmission network.

Richard comments, “Power International has a substantial track record of delivering solutions for power cables, fire applications and PID solutions to high-profile customers such as Ril, Tata and Adani. For us, it’s exciting to work with such a competent systems integrator in a vibrant, fast growing market such as India. We are hopeful that by working together we can improve the outlook for India’s energy market and beyond”.

Elecrama is a platform to connect the world with the Indian energy market in respect of the latest technology, new trends and innovation for future energy transition. Richard and the Power International team are looking forward to welcoming you to stand H4A7 this January.
