MORGES, Switzerland, Oct. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnisens has signed a 5
year framework supply agreement with 50Hertz Transmission for the supply of
temperature sensing (DTS) and dynamic cable rating (DCR) systems for the
German utility.

With one of the most recent grids in Europe, 50Hertz operates the transmission
grid of the northern and eastern part of Germany, connecting to the European
grid through its neighbours: Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. 50Hertz
coordinates the electricity market in the German federal states of Berlin,
Brandenburg, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and
Thuringia.

Chosen after an extensive selection process, Omnisens systems will be deployed
on upcoming buried onshore and subsea cable projects, some as long as 90 km.

"The secure integration of renewable energy requires more tailor-made
solutions such as high-voltage cables. Dynamic Cable Rating enables us to
operate our cables more efficiently and safely. All participants will benefit
from increased transparency on cable performance,"
said Dr. Henrich Quick, Head of Asset Management, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH.
