Partnership to Bring Data-Driven Predictive Asset Management Solutions

Feb. 27, 2020
MPR and Exacter have joined forces to develop and deploy next-generation data solutions for the electric utility industry.

MPR Associates, Inc., an engineering and technology consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia, and Exacter, Inc., a provider of patented sensor technology and predictive analytics from Columbus, Ohio, have formed a strategic partnership aimed at developing and deploying next-generation data solutions for the electric utility industry.

The partnership accelerates the development of advanced data solutions that enable utility clients to take advantage of Exacter's asset management technology and grid intelligence data. For Exacter, partnering with MPR brings a new level of critical thinking and product engineering to its commercialization efforts. 

"Several of our clients have used Exacter analytics so we have had our eye on them for some time. Exacter's patented sensor technology provides high-quality predictive data for improving grid reliability and resilience, putting them right in the market space we operate in," said Tom Lubnow, vice president of power services for MPR. "Our collaboration will help shape some of Exacter's innovative offerings and make their powerful data more accessible and beneficial to the utility industry."

"With MPR's track record of providing workable, sustainable solutions to the utility industry, I am confident our collaboration will yield more effective ways for Exacter's solutions to fit into existing utility business frameworks," said Exacter President and Chief Operating Officer Geoffrey Bibo. "MPR's cross-disciplinary team of engineers, data scientists, and business analysts are a rich asset as we develop our next generation of predictive data and technology solutions."

Exacter's proprietary sensor technology identifies and locates pre-fail electrical signatures on overhead power lines, allowing utilities to take preventive action before a power outage occurs. Exacter data can be a cornerstone of the utility industry's effort to transition from run-to-failure operations to proactive, predictive asset management.

Because MPR is helping to shape the integration of predictive data and technology solutions in the utility industry, the strategic partnership with Exacter is timely. "We see the high value that Exacter data provides," concluded MPR's Lubnow. "The industry needs actionable, data-driven approaches for managing their overhead assets. Our team is energized about helping to bring Exacter's next generation technology and predictive data solutions to our clients."
