About the Project
Its use of digital technology offers a range of significant benefits to both customers and operators, from improved safety to lower costs.
The goal of FITNESS is to enable GB Transmission Owners (TOs) and Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) to apply a digital substation design approach to future load and non-load related investment. Digital substations are based on concepts of standardisation and interoperability, and enable replacement of many kilometres of copper wiring with digital measurements over a cost effective fibre communications network.
FITNESS provides much greater flexibility in building, instrumenting, maintaining, modernising and controlling future substations.
