SensorLogic's SNOdar sensors to aid hydropower optimization in Norway

22 September 2022

Where2O, a Norwegian IoT company and part of the Telenor group, is to deploy SNOdar sensors from US-based SensorLogic Inc to provide critical water availability data to allow hydropower plants to optimize power production.

SNOdar is a state-of-the-art snow-depth sensor which offers a new way for water conservation districts, governments, private weather companies, hydropower plants and ski areas to accurately measure snow depth in real-time. SNOdars are currently deployed across US and European environmental agencies, hydro plants and ski resorts.

"We are excited about being able to offer the market-leading products from SensorLogic to our customers,” said Eivind Trondsen, CEO of Where2O AS. “Knowing the amount of snow accumulating in the watersheds above hydropower plants is one of the greatest challenges to hydrologists in the power industry.”

"We are excited to partner with Where2O to bring critical water availability data to their clients across the Nordic region," added Doug Roberts, Founder of SensorLogic. "Climate change has rendered existing technologies and networks unreliable when tracking and analyzing water availability. We have invested significant time and capital to develop SNOdar and the cloud computing platform needed to combine public data, our sensor data, and proprietary algorithms to offer superior water availability analytics to the $7 billion dollar private climate data industry."
