Bixia AB selects Brady

Swedish electric utility company, Bixia AB, has selected Brady plc (www.bradyplc.com) solutions to help it extend trading capability on Swedish TSO during lockdown.

The request to enhance Brady’s Physical Power Trading platform (www.bradyplc.com/european-physical-power-trading-solutions) to manage mFRR capacity bids from Bixia to SvK was initiated in March at the start of global COVID 19 pandemic, whilst both Brady and Bixia were under lockdown.

Despite managing the entire project under new virtual conditions, the team was able to deliver this on time and within budget.  Brady’s mFRR bids module and communicator were successfully tested against the SvK, upgraded, and configured for the customer within the hard deadline of 1 June 2020.

“We have been up and running since the start of June with mFRR  bids functionality and the communicator module and this has been working well, exactly as we had specified to Brady,” says Morgan Andersson, Physical Power Trader for Bixia AB.  “We gave the team at Brady a very tight time frame to complete this project and appreciate their rapid turn around and the ease of communication during these unusual lockdown circumstances.”  

Commenting on managing the project under virtual conditions, Carmen Carey, CEO at Brady says “he transition to remote working for Brady has been seamless due to the exceptional work our IT teams completed well in advance of the reality of COVID 19.  Being a global organization with well-connected regional offices, virtual meetings, and cloud-based technology platforms were already well established and proven.  We are proud to be continually meeting our customer commitments during these challenging times and remain committed to focussing on delighting our valued customers.”
