Hyperion Selected as Finalist in Duquesne Challenge for Underground Cable Monitoring in Pittsburgh
With hundreds of millions of miles of electrical cables worldwide buried beneath our feet, the need to maintain and look after this critical infrastructure is essential to our daily lives.
As the cables age, it is important to monitor these cables to allow for proactive maintenance and provide a safe environment for those who work to ensure we have the electrical power needed for today's connected society.
Duquesne Light Company's Monitoring Electrical Cable Challenge seeks novel solutions to monitor and detect precursors to failure in underground Medium Voltage Power Cables. The challenge focuses specifically on monitoring the health of Paper-Insulated (PILC) and Solid Dielectric (EPR) based cables and applications when both types are used and spliced together.
Hyperion has been selected as one of 2 finalists from over 20 teams, to install our tFITs cable condition monitoring system in a test cable circuit. The system will be evaluated over 6 months, when the final winner will be chosen

Founding of Hyperion
In July 2015, Anselm Viswasam and Gerald Manuelpillai had a vision to help build a truly Smart Grid. They decided to combine their expertise in the power industry and fiber sensing arena, to create a unique technology aimed at power utilities, to enable gathering of data from deep inside any energized high voltage asset.
