Lindsey Manufacturing receives Far West Region Outstanding Partnership Award from Federal Laboratory Consortium
San Antonio, Texas, October 22, 2012 – Lindsey Manufacturing Company, a leading supplier of advanced transmission and distribution solutions for the electric utility industry, today announced it received the Far West Region Outstanding Partnership Award from the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) during its Mid-Continent & Far West Regional Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. The award was in recognition of Lindsey Manufacturing’s success in commercializing technology developed by Idaho National Labs (INL).
This award-winning partnership resulted in the development of Lindsey Manufacturing’s Transmission Line Monitor (TLM). This innovative transmission line clearance monitor assists with real-time rating and forecasting of high-voltage line capacity. As the worldwide exclusive licensee of the patented technology, the Lindsey TLM enables electric utilities to maximize their transmission resources by calculating each line’s dynamic capacity. By knowing the conductor’s height clearance history for a load under specific weather conditions, operators can forecast the line capacity for similar future weather conditions with a high degree of confidence.
According to Lindsey Manufacturing President Dr. Keith E. Lindsey, “We are honored by the FLC’s recognition of our transmission line monitor, and share this award with our colleagues at the INL. As a result of our work, the TLM will change the way the electric transmission and distribution infrastructure is maintained and managed worldwide.”
Located in Idaho Falls, Idaho, the Idaho National Laboratory as been in operation since 1949 and is a science-based, applied engineering national laboratory dedicated to supporting the U.S. Department of Energy’s missions in nuclear and energy research, science, and national defense.
The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) is the nationwide network of federal laboratories that provides the forum to develop strategies and opportunities for linking laboratory mission technologies and expertise with the marketplace. Organized in 1974, the FLC was formally chartered by the Federal Technology Transfer Act of 1986 to promote and strengthen technology transfer nationwide. Today, approximately 300 federal laboratories and centers and their parent departments and agencies are FLC members.
