Danish utilities select KMD for digital and energy transformation


In Denmark, utility consortium VISUE has awarded a multi-year digital transformation contract to digital solutions firm KMD.

The transition to green energy, increased consumption and new consumption patterns place massive demands on the energy infrastructure in Denmark.

And as such, IT-based on future-proof technology plays a crucial role in ensuring stable operation during the transition to more renewable green energy.

To carry out this task, VISUE has chosen KMD as the technological partner to deliver the next-generation industrial solution to the energy and utility sector.

KMD will be a total supplier of a state-of-the-art industrial solution that enables VISUE’s member companies to carry out their core task and act on the green transition over the next ten years.

The delivery consists of four flexible and scalable systems with a high level of automation, data quality, and usability.

KMD – with subcontractor Greenbird – was awarded the contract in a highly competitive field with both national and international players. The contract with VISUE concerns five network companies in the ownership group and amounts to a three-digit million value.

Claus Lund, the CEO of VISUE, said: “We started the tender process because we needed an industry specific and future-oriented solution to help the companies with their responsibility for safe operations over the next decade. VISUE and the ownership group have from the start had a strong focus on the quality of the solution and the supplier’s understanding of both the energy and supply sector and our specific needs. KMD has proven that they have heavy experience and insight into the industry, and at the same time KMD excels at being able to ensure a strong connection between the systems, which is important in light of the future we face.”

Tine Anneberg, who is responsible for customers in KMD’s energy vertical, added: “A thorough prior work has been carried out by VISUE, something which testifies to a group of owners with a clear vision of the role of network companies in the green transition and high ambitions for future IT solutions. VISUE knows what the future holds and they have not compromised their demands on the technical and business capabilities of the solution. We have had a constructive and enriching dialogue with VISUE in the process, which is why we are also very pleased that the decision has fallen on us. I am personally impressed by the engagement from VISUE and the member companies, and I very much look forward to fulfilling the ambitions of the concrete solution.”

Merete Søby, director of data-driven solutions and responsible for KMD’s activities in the private sector, reiterates: “We are very grateful for this decision and sees it as a huge recognition that VISUE has chosen KMD as provider of the net companies’ new IT platform. KMD has great ambitions in energy and climate, and we continuously invest in future platforms that support the green transition and the new needs in the market. In our view, digital technologies are the fundament for society’s green transition and the key to meet the climate ambitions.”
