The cause of the dispute has been interference in the form of flicker which occurs in Östra Kind's power grid, due to the production of welded steel grids at JH Tidbecks AB.
JH Tidbecks manufactures grids and wire mesh for the process industry. The process involves large welders which briefly causes voltage drops in the network around Ljungsarp in the county of Tranemo. These voltage dips causes lights to flash in households and are perceived as very disruptive to the population in the area around the industry. The public has thus called for measures to be taken towards the Utility Östra Kinds, who in turn has been forced to make demands on Tidbecks to solve the problem. The discussions of the problem intensified in 2004 and numerous consultants and experts have since been engaged to find a suitable solution.
It took until late 2009 before a product that could solve the problem was found, and in January 2010 Tidbecks decided to invest in an ADF energy optimizer from Comsys AB.
"Problems with the voltage disturbances caused by flicker is a huge growth market for us and globally we expect these problems to become more and more common due to lack of capacity in the existing power grid infrastructure," says CEO Marcus Löfgren.
Comsys has quickly become one of the leaders in the Power Quality field and is currently represented by partnerships in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Entry into the North American energy market is planned in late 2010.
