The Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency (Väylävirasto) have selected Metrum for supervision and control of the railway system in Finland.

Väylävirasto are focused on reliable and cost-effective railway operation based on increased supervision and control. One important part of this have been to install the Metrum PQ Controller System and PQX3-instruments in the railway transformer stations.

Thanks to added dynamic control features, the PQX3-instruments will assist in more efficient and cost-effective operations with reduced amount of reactive power. The instruments will both measure power and power quality and deliver valuable information about the electrical status for each substation. The data can be used for dynamic control of capacitor banks in relation to real-time traffic situation.

The solution is delivered in close collaboration with Rejlers Finland, which is Metrum’s partner and distributor for the Finnish market.
