Hawaiian Electric Company Chooses FreeWave Technologies' Wireless Data Solutions For Fault Circuit Indicator Project





SAN DIEGO, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DistribuTECH (Booth #1533) -- FreeWave Technologies, ( www.freewave.com), manufacturer of the most reliable, high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, today announced it has been selected for a fault circuit indicator (FCI) project by Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) ( www.heco.com/portal/site/heco). By installing FCI's throughout the island of Oahu, HECO can effectively mitigate power outages or issues along the power line by detecting fault data and transmitting it in real-time with FreeWave's wireless data radios. This will allow HECO to quickly restore power to residents. The utility worked with FreeWave and its partner Power Delivery Products, Inc. ( www.powerdeliveryproducts.com/index.php), who provided the Smart Navigator FCI sensors, to install a network using FreeWave's FGR2-PE radios for long range wireless communications. Deployment kicked off in late 2012 and will continue throughout 2013. Once the initial project is complete FCIs will be deployed across the entire island of Oahu.         

"Our solutions are ideal for distribution automation applications such as FCIs, because they perform exceedingly well in challenging, remote environments," said Curt Goldman, utility market manager at FreeWave Technologies. "This deployment began in one of the most difficult terrains for wireless data transmission on the island of Oahu. The substation in the northwest corner of the island is extremely remote and the technology is deployed on a beach, exposing the wireless radios to harsh environmental elements. This was a location where competing wireless communication technologies previously were unable to receive or transmit critical data. However, our radios have performed well since day one."  

In addition to the FGR2-PE's reliable performance, project managers at HECO have cited excellent customer service and on-site support as key reasons for choosing FreeWave for the FCI project. FreeWave's system engineering team has been closely involved in HECO's network deployment by working with its partner, Power Delivery Products, to ensure optimum network performance.
