Arquiled partners with Enel X Brazil in the digital transformation project of the electric grid in Vila Olímpia
Urban Futurability project was launched in 2019 and foresees a total investment of around 20 million by the end of 2021.
Forty initiatives of digitization and artificial intelligence, many of them unprecedented in Latin America, promise to transform the electric grid of one of São Paulo’s main financial and business centers into a digital, intelligent and sustainable platform that will allow new applications and greater efficiency in the use of energy.
Led by Enel X, the Urban Futurability project involves a set of strategic partners in the areas of electric mobility, public WiFi, video surveillance, smart traffic lights, analytics and street lighting, with Arquiled being selected to supply LED luminaires equipped with a remote management system.
The data collection regarding electric grid conditions will be gathered by approximately 4 900 sensors and a three-dimensional digital replica of the same will be created using the Network Digital Twin® technology. In this way, it will be possible to access and act in real time on the grid to prevent or solve problems and improve the service. Additionally, the mapping of the grid will also generate new opportunities for the municipality, utilities and other companies, as well as for society in general.
