Smart Wires Technology Ltd today announced it has received a purchase order from ISA Transelca for a grid expansion project in the Atlantico region in Colombia. The order will have a net revenue of approximately $18-$20 million over 2022, 2023 and 2024, with energization date by June 2024.
This project will consist of Smart Wires' technology - SmartValve[TM] - installations on five 220 kV circuits within ISA Transelca's asset base. This will enable an additional 300 MW of renewables to reliably connect to the grid.
"We are proud to announce further progress in Latin America with ISA Group," said Smart Wires CEO Peter Wells. "ISA Group is well-respected throughout the region for their technical rigor and industry leadership. This announcement shows how a market evolves from pilot, to initial application, to large-scale applications and ultimately to platform adoption."
Smart Wires installed an initial pilot project in Colombia with Empresas Públicas de Medellín (EPM) in 2021 to gain experience with the technology. This was followed by an initial application by Grupo Energía Bogotá (GEB) which involved a project from $7-$9 million which unlocked more than 250 MW of network capacity to alleviate inter-regional congestion, improve reliability of electricity supply and support economic development.
In 2021, Smart Wires announced its first purchase order from ISA Transelca which had a net revenue of $20-$23.3 million dollars and an energization date later this year, meaning this revenue will be recognized this year.
