“We have been tracking the energy automation space for a long time and are impressed by the achievements of Netcontrol and the management team. The company’s solutions are increasing in importance for network operators as demand for smart-grid capabilities and high up-time are increasing. Furthermore, the company is well appreciated as an agile, high-quality partner with a wide customer base both in the Nordics and in other regions.
