Gnosys Global Ltd. nominated for the Best Electricity Network Innovation on the UK Energy Innovation Awards.

Wednesday September 25, 2019

Guildford, UK – Gnosys Global Ltd has been nominated for the Best Electricity Network Innovation in the UK Energy Innovation Awards for its self-healing cable fluid developments. The event will be held in the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool on Thursday the 26th of September 2019. Gnosys Global Ltd will be providing an overview of their self-healing dielectric fluids for fluid-filled cables at the Innovation Safari event before the Awards Ceremony.

Gnosys Global Ltd., supported by UK Power Networks, and with contributions from Northern Powergrid, has developed Anagen, a self-healing liquid dielectric that will revolutionise the management of fluid-filled cables.

Old fluid-filled underground power cables are prone to oil leaks with costly environmental and economic consequences. Anagen has all the required properties for cable insulation but, on contact with air, the fluid solidifies to stem leaks, minimise environmental impact and prolong useful life.

Reducing cable leaks in the USA

Tuesday January 29, 2019

Guildford, UK – Gnosys is now working with one of the largest energy companies in the United States to develop the self-healing dielectric fluid solutions for their legacy power cable assets. This important technology is already being tested in the UK under controlled conditions. It has been shown to stop fluid-filled cables from developing small leaks of insulating fluids. This protects the environment and reduces the operating cost for the network.

Aerial asset inspections

Thursday November 1, 2019

Guildford, UK – Achieving long distance inspection of infrastructure assets using unmanned aerial vehicles has moved one step closer. The UK Department of Transport has chosen Gnosys to demonstrate pervasive communications for UAVs to fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLoS). In the future, these new long-range aerial platforms will reduce inspection costs for many companies that operate distributed infrastructures.

Cables for renewable power

Thursday November 1, 2019

Guildford, UK – Gnosys along with the University of Southampton successfully delivered an Innovate UK project called CableSure. This work centered on developing enhanced performance cable insulation materials. Key to this project was the development of new nanomaterials that when added to polymers enhance properties of electrical breakdown strength, electrical resistivity, thermal conductivity, and thermal stability – all necessary for renewable centered power networks.
