Hurricane Ian demonstrated the immense power and destructive forces at play with a major hurricane. The damaging winds can take out power to millions, and leave dangerous conditions with live downed power lines, and other electrical equipment, creating a risk of fire and electrocution. As power companies rebuild their grids, investors may want to look to solutions that better prepare power companies to combat future storms. Viking Energy’s Open Conductor Detection Technology offers utility companies a complete solution to eliminating the danger of live transmission lines in the wake of a major natural disaster.
VKIN OPEN CONDUCTOR DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
Power lines do not have to be arcing or sparking to be dangerous. Not only are the actual transmission lines themselves a threat, but any utility or cable line that comes into contact with an energized line also poses a dangerous threat. Viking Protection Systems, LLC, a majority owned subsidiary of Viking Energy (OTC:VKIN) has an exciting new technology that seeks to eliminate the danger of a downed transmission line.
Vikings’ patent application is a continuation of previous filings and details new systems for prevention of ground faults existing in electric transmission lines caused by a damaged line.
VKINs rapid proactive system is designed to detect a fault within the transmission line, and trigger the circuit breaker, before the damaged line comes into contact with a surface. The ability to cut power to a downed transmission line eliminates the danger of electrocution and fire in the wake of a major storm like Hurricane Ian.
Vikings (OTC:VKIN) Open Conductor Detection technology offers utility companies with a comprehensive solution to combat them, making VKIN a stock to watch.
Florida's largest electricity provider, Florida Power and Light, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) has deployed over 20,000 workers from 30 states to help repair the power grid. The substantial amount of prep from burying lines, to replacing wooden poles with concrete or steel, has paid off. At 48 hours after the storm, the number of customers that were without power had been halved, a much faster response time than previous storms.
