Dunboyne, Co Meath Ireland, 18th August 2020: Leading utility network and wireless telecommunications specialist, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced its appointment as an Authorised Channel Partner for GE’s Grid Solutions, a division of GE Renewable Energy.
The relationship recognises EMR’s deep technical expertise and commercial success in designing, deploying and supporting communications infrastructure for utility networks across the UK and Ireland.
EMR will offer GE’s extensive portfolio of wireless connectivity solutions to its customers across the water, wind, solar and energy distribution sectors.
GE’s market-leading technology supports EMR’s commitment to provide resilient, reliable and efficient communication networks to utility operators and independent power producers evolving to a smarter, greener, more resilient grid.
Commenting on the relationship Alan Feenan, sales director at EMR said:
“Our business is growing strongly, particularly in the UK. Utility operators are increasingly engaging with EMR as we provide the turnkey services they require to realise their digital transformation plans. The depth and breadth of GE’s product portfolio coupled with our integration and service wrap is a compelling proposition and one that continues to strike a chord across multiple sectors.”
The team at EMR is currently involved in extensive communications projects including one for a major electricity utility, where it expects to deploy up to 8,000 radios over a three-year period. It has just completed a communications network and cybersecurity upgrade at over 100 sites for a major solar farm owner, combining GE’s advanced technologies and professional services from the EMR team.
Giovanni Puppo, senior regional sales leader Europe, Russia & CIS with GE’s Industrial Communications group within Grid Solutions believes the appointment of EMR to the partner program will serve to support GE’s market development plans in Europe.
“To reinforce our worldwide leadership in deploying hardened communications networks for industrial and energy companies, it’s key to collaborate with partners that can deliver, and have the required skills and experience to represent us. That’s why we are excited to work with EMR and have them represent us part of our Value-Added Reseller network.”
The addition of GE’s line of industrial communications solutions to EMR’s partner eco-system signals continued investment in training and technical certification and enables the company to continue on its upward business trajectory with high profile contract wins such as Severn Trent Water, Greencoat UK Wind, Affinity Water, SSE and Enerco Energy.
