Grid Vision Solutions & Services
Achieve greater accuracy, improve quality and consistency with your asset inspections and asset data.
We provide Inspection Management and Asset Information Management solutions and services to utilities globally.
We deliver a data-driven and condition-based approach to infrastructure inspections utilizing Grid Vision software powered by Artificial intelligence(AI). We support utilities to reduce inspection costs, improve inspection safety, improve the quality of asset data and prolong asset life.
We believe that customers should play a part in shaping the solutions that add value to their daily operations. We designed our Innovation Lab to be an open environment where Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and Distribution System Operators (DSOs) can connect, collaborate and shape the next generation of our software solutions.
Meet us at DISTRIBUTECH 2023
At DISTRIBUTECH we are joined by Kongsberg Digital who will be showcasing their Kognitwin® solution, which provides load and product forecast for the grid. Together, Grid Vision and Kognitwin bridge the gap between the physical and digital grid.
Come by our booth #818 at DISTRIBUTECH and discover how Grid Vision and Kognitwin is transforming the way the world’s leading energy providers inspect and maintain critical infrastructure.
A.I. All around you – Moving past misconceptions.
Hear eSmart Systems CTO, Erik Åsberg break down myths and misconceptions surrounding Artificial Intelligence, how it is already part of everyday life and how it contributes to a resilient power supply.
How virtual inspections support capital projects.
Hear how Xcel Energy has transitioned from a find-and-fix mentality in their grid inspections to a find-and-prioritize mentality by getting a deeper understanding of what is going on at the asset level and keeping capital projects in mind.
During 60-minutes of high value discussion, you’ll learn how to build a data-driven virtual inspection program that goes beyond traditional inspection methods.
eSmart Systems will be presenting at top-industry events in October along with big utilities as a global thought leader.
We are excited to be presenting with SMUD, Xcel, and UFD at some top-industry events this October hosted by CEATI, EEI, and EPRI. Our goal is to share the lessons learned from some of our projects with our customers and help utilities learn from other utilities by sharing the best practices on inspections and asset data.
eSmart Systems raises ~€40m to accelerate virtual infrastructure inspections for power utilities
The capital will be used to accelerate the company’s commercial development and international growth.
We partnered with Axpo and Linia to deliver drone-based overhead line inspection
This partnership delivered an inspection program for over 1000 KM of overhead lines utilizing, state-of-the-art camera technology, automated flight routes and Grid Vision AI-powered inspection software.
eSmart Systems partners with Evergy to inspect their entire transmission line system utilizing Artificial Intelligence.
eSmart Systems, a leading provider of grid inspection AI-powered software, is pleased to announce the combination with Verico, a Norwegian company offering specialized Enterprise Asset Management services and products to the utility sector.
eSmart Systems announces new CEO
Henrik Bache is appointed CEO of eSmart Systems, a leading provider of grid inspection AI-powered software. Founder Knut H. Johansen will become a board member with a focus on financing and strategy.
Hear From Our Customers
We have been excited about eSmart since hearing about them through our partnership with Energy Impact Partners (EIP). Utilizing cutting-edge technology in the form of AI to inspect our distribution poles makes our electric grid smarter, improves our business processes and helps to keep the lights on for our customers.
Grid Vision will provide great support for our powerline inspections. We see real value using the tool in our daily work, through improved visibility and awareness of our assets’ condition and the continuous learning of the algorithms driving better asset performance management.
We needed a solution to help streamline our rust inspections and at the same time improve the end-to-end maintenance process. Working with eSmart Systems gives us access to world class AI and inspection management tools, and the ability to participate in the design of this all-new module is an exciting step on our innovation and digitalization journey.
Digital and innovative solutions are key for our grids in being the backbone of the energy transition. In order to achieve the best for our network customers, we also rely on strong partnerships with start-ups. By partnering with eSmart Systems, we are improving the accuracy of power grid inspections and the security of supply. Ultimately, fewer mast climbs will be necessary, resulting in an increase in work safety.
Xcel Energy’s work on unmanned aircraft systems with our partners demonstrates that collaboration benefits customers, the economy, and the environment. Our company is an industry leader in using UAS technologies for transmission line inspections and our work with eSmart Systems and EDM will help improve the safety and reliability of the energy grid.
This is our 4th attempt at trying to get our asset information updated. Colleagues who have been involved in the previous projects still don’t believe it’s going to work. That says something about how challenging it is.
We’re very satisfied with the work Verico* has done for us. The authorities have stated that they haven’t seen any grid operator with better control of data and data acquisition than Lyse. That is thanks to Verico.
We are very pleased with the work Verico* has done for us. They have tools, expertise and work processes of the highest quality. In addition, they are concerned with continuous improvements and make adjustments to processes and methodologies continuously.
