September 18, 2019: At the CIGRE 2019 conference in Montreal, POSITRON and SANERGRID were pleased to announce the signing of a representation partnership between Reginald Weiser, CEO of POSITRON, and Samuel Bourseul, CEO of SANERGRID.
POSITRON high voltage insulator testers are designed to reduce power outages due to the failure of power line insulators and substation equipment insulators. This partnership enables SANERGRID to represent the latest POSITRON technology solutions to its European utility customers.
POSITRON is the world leader in electric field fault detection technology, which detects even the smallest conductive faults on live insulators long before they fail.
SANERGRID, with its strong local support teams, will assist its customers in Europe by demonstrating how POSITRON’s testers reliably determine the condition of insulators within seconds by recording and transmitting this data to enable timely preventive replacement. The testers are also used as safety tools to determine in seconds whether personnel can work safely around the isolator(s).
This partnership will ensure a close working relationship between POSITRON and SANERGRID, guaranteeing solid support for its customers.
