Fingrid among the best in international ITOMS study

Fingrid has ranked among the best transmission system operators in ITOMS (the International Transmission Operations and Maintenance Study) for the eleventh consecutive time. The study compared the quality and costs of grid maintenance on transmission system operators' grids. Fingrid fared especially well in transmission line maintenance and vegetation management.
Fingrid's success in ITOMS can be explained by the operating models it has chosen and by the effective use of advanced information systems. In the 2015 study, Fingrid was able for the first time to utilise its new asset management system, Elvis, which helps to make even more detailed information available for use.
 
The International Transmission Operations and Maintenance Study examines operational quality, effectiveness and economy. The study is not a competition regarding grid operation superiority; rather, the aim is to search for the best operating methods and procedures, and to learn from other companies. The international study is carried out by UMS Group Inc.
 
ITOMS is considered to be one of the most respected comparative studies in the industry.
Thirty-one TSOs from around the world participated in the 2015 study. Of the participating transmission system operators, 12 were from Europe, five were from North and South America, five were from Australia/New Zealand, and nine were from Asia/Africa.
