BKK Nett signs agreement to further develop and test Kognitwin Grid

Kongsberg Digital, operator of the research project KogniGrid, recently launched a digital twin for power grids called Kognitwin Grid which is to be further developed and tested by BKK Nett.

Kongsberg Digital developed the SaaS product, Kognitwin Grid, in close collaboration with industry and research partners, based on its proprietary digital platform Kognifai. It is a digital twin of the power grid, which provides insights and forecasts to identify grid bottlenecks, simulate grid scenarios and optimise grid investments. This enables operators to foresee challenges to the grid infrastructure, automate alerts and complex processes, to ensure complete control and pave the way for the digitalised energy system of the future.

Kognitwin Grid is a direct result of the KogniGrid project, launched in 2018, as a collaboration with BKK Nett, Tensio (NTE Nett), Statnett, Microsoft and SINTEF. BKK Nett has now signed a new six-month research project for further development and testing of Kognitwin Grid.

“While an increasing part of the world's energy systems and the means of transport are becoming electric, the pressure is increasing on the power grid infrastructure, which is not built to handle the new complexity” said Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital. “One of the solutions is to keep building out grids for maximum capacity, resulting in more costly infrastructure and thus more expensive electricity for consumers. Digital twins enable precise and data-driven real-time insight so that operators can forecast specific needs, introduce measures to balance the network and prevent black-outs without building it out. The grid operators hold the key to solving the challenges on the power grid and thus contribute to the green shift. We are pleased that BKK Nett will continue the close collaboration with us through Kognitwin Grid so that we together can find solutions that enable increased electrification of the society”.

Project manager R&D in BKK Nett, Eivind Flatlandsmo, added that BKK Nett has learned a lot during the 3.5 years the project has been running and are therefore looking forward to the further collaboration with Kongsberg Digital.

“One of our strategic goals is to become more data-driven in the decision-making processes for development, management and operation of the power grid” said Mr Flatlandsmo. “This requires large amounts of data and information from various sources, which in turn requires new tools and methods to generate the insight we need. Fundamental to everything is data quality and information security, without this we cannot rely on the results produced or the software itself. We have acquired valuable knowledge and experience from the close cooperation with the partners in the KogniGrid project over a period of 3.5 years. We now know more about what a digital twin is, the work required to create a twin of value, and the potential the twin enables. The project has also given us a picture of our digital maturity level, the capacity for development and implementation of new solutions. This requires the two most important resources we have and always want more of: people and time. We are proud to continue our collaboration with Kongsberg Digital. We want to contribute to the green shift that challenges today's power grid. To solve this, we need help. We cannot solve all our challenges alone”.

Last week, Kongsberg Digital entered into a similar agreement with Tensio, which was also involved in the KogniGrid project. The agreement with Tensio includes a six-month trial of Kognitwin Grid.

Hi everyone... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn\'t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : or view his website for more review
