Reliability of supply
Ørsted's ambition is for a customer to experience, on average, power failure of no more than 35 minutes per year. Our grid company, Radius continuously invests in securing a high reliability of supply. This ensures stable energy to both private and business customers.
Radius increases the reliability of supply
Our grid company, Radius, are replacing 1500 meters every day.  In 2020, more than a million meters will have been replaced, enabling consumers to follow their consumption on an hourly basis. Further it will ensure more efficient load modelling of the grid and optimise the network operation.

In 2013, Radius started the cable laying of overhead lines in the high-voltage grid – the so-called 50kV grid. With a total investment over the next six to seven years of nearly DKK 500 million, this project is one of our major infrastructure projects. It meets a political desire to strengthen the reliability of supply for the benefit of customers. The fact that the overhead lines will disappear is an aesthetic advantage to several of the picturesque areas.

Radius will continue to invest in a high security of supply in the future. DKK 650 million is earmarked for cable laying projects and relocation of cables from 2016.
