Olympic-sized demand on city substation requires a reliable monitoring solution

The Olympic Park is the main center of competition for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Covering over 1 million square meters and including 9 different sports facilities, a new power substation was constructed to handle the enormous power demand in the park. APSensing’s fibre-optic based DTS (Distributed Temperature Sensing) solution was selected to monitor this valuable infrastructure.

The Challenge

The responsible power company needed a proven and reliable monitoring solution that could be implemented on time as well as easily integrated into the park’s existing SCADA system and IT structures. AP Sensing was selected because of meeting IEC-61850 standards, DNP3 capabilities, and because of our track record for reliability, flexibility and superior support services.
