Lindsey has been improving grid resilience since decades before the term existed. Lindsey’s portfolio of Grid Resilience Systems encompasses the three major aspects of resilience: Hardening, Advanced Capabilities, and Recovery. Explore Lindsey’s resilient solutions; always ready.
Lindsey Emergency Restoration System (ERS) structures are pre-kitted, modular guyed transmission towers. ERS structures can be rapidly deployed to the most remote locations and be quickly assembled by any available erection method. Proven over 30 years, there is no faster way to get conductors back in the air, moving power. Lindsey ERS structures provide the time to methodically repair or replace damaged towers.
All parts within a Lindsey ERS system are completely interchangeable. In the USA, hundreds of Lindsey 1070-series ERS structures are in place at utilities across the country. Any tower fall down exceeding a utility’s ERS structure inventory can be augmented by asset sharing from neighboring utilities. Lindsey’s GRIDSURANCE® asset sharing program, established in 2006, can direct utilities to locate nearby ERS structure assets.
A member of the TLM-family of transmission line monitors, the TLM Security monitor is self-powered and can communicates via satellite radio, making it ideal for even the most remote tower locations.
Transmission network resiliency consists of the ability both to resist failure and to rapidly recover from failure. Both sides of transmission grid resiliency can be aided by pre-deployment of Lindsey SMARTLINE-TCF transmission line rating and forecasting systems (Learn More). Based on Lindsey’s next-generation dynamic line rating (DLR) system which incorporates continuous learning, SMARTLINE-TCF can improve grid resiliency in a way that is cost effective, while providing ongoing operational benefits when not being used for resiliency purposes, including:
