HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 29, 2022 / Viking Protection Systems, LLC, a majority owned subsidiary of Viking Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB:VKIN), is pleased to announce that it filed on August 23, 2022 a new patent application in the United States Patent & Trademark Office relating to its electric transmission line protection technology. The patent application is a continuation of previous filings and covers systems for preventing ground faults in existing three phase electric transmission lines caused by line breakage (open conductor). Fires caused by line breaks have caused injury, death and billions of dollars in damage to public and private property, to forests and to wildlife. Existing systems shut down the power on broken lines after the broken lines have contacted the ground (structures or natural earth) and therefore do not always prevent faults that can cause disastrous damage.
Viking's rapid pro-active systems are designed to terminate (shut-off) the power before the broken line(s) makes any contact with the ground (structures or natural earth), the aim being to prevent an incendiary event or other disaster.
This new patent application is specific to systems that utilize Viking's high sensitivity parameter detection that reacts within fractions of a second to shut down broken lines before ground contact can occur.
Based in Houston, Texas, Viking Energy Group, Inc. is a growth-oriented diversified energy company. Through various majority-owned subsidiaries, Viking provides custom energy & power solutions to commercial and industrial clients in North America and owns interests in oil and natural gas assets in the United States.
