Treetech could not stay out of the XXV SNPTEE - the biggest Brazilian electrical sector event. This year (2019) the event will occur at Expominas in Belo Horizonte, on November…
Between August 1st and 12th , two Treetech engineers attended the Asian country performing technical and commercial visits. During the two weeks of work they visited customer sites in various regions of India, improving and expanding the presence of Treetech in the country.
Encouraged by the growing concern of the Indian government to increase the reliability of the electrical system and avoid daily “blackouts” in central India, the Brazilian company was represented by engineers Marcos Alves and Heber Pedrosa. Together with the technical and commercial representatives locations, they were tasked with updating installed systems, and increase the visibility of Treetech in foreign territory.

One of the updated substations, has a 315 MVA and 400kV transformer monitored online by Sigma4Net, connected to bushings sensors (BM), moisture in oil monitors (MO), temperature sensors (TM1 / TM2) and rupture of membrane monitors (MBR). In another location, the same combination equips a transformer of 250 MVA and 242kV that is directly connected to the thermal power plant generator. Installed in 2009 by Treetech, the systems have undergone a full upgrade by adding new models of diagnostic and prognostic occasioning thus greater reliability to the regional electrical system.
The team visited several manufacturers of assets and utilities in various regions of the country, where the solutions developed by Treetech were presented, including: online monitoring of power transformers, reactors, CTs and circuit breakers, as well as Internet access via demonstrations, in real time, of the various features of Sigma4web monitoring system.
The success demonstrated the level of 100% Brazilian technology that is spread in over 50 countries with more than 85,000 sensors and 400 systems that are in full operation helping to maintain the continuity and reliability of electrical systems.
