Hitachi joins in smart-grid project in Poland

Advanced tech would add reliability and foster renewable energy

TOKYO -- Hitachi will take part in a smart-grid demonstration project in Poland, aimed at enhancing the security of the country's power system as well as reducing costs, the Japanese industrial giant said Friday.

Hitachi and subsidiary Hitachi Chemical signed an implementation document for the project with state-owned grid operator Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne, distribution network operator Energa-Operator and power supplier Energa Wytwarzanie.

The three-and-a-half-year endeavor will test whether Hitachi's special protection system can automatically prevent grid overloads in case of a transmission network accident.
