The cause of the dispute has been interference in the form of flicker which occurs in Östra Kind's power grid, due to the production of welded steel grids at JH Tidbecks AB.

JH Tidbecks manufactures grids and wire mesh for the process industry. The process involves large welders which briefly causes voltage drops in the network around Ljungsarp in the county of Tranemo. These voltage dips causes lights to flash in households and are perceived as very disruptive to the population in the area around the industry. The public has thus called for measures to be taken towards the Utility Östra Kinds, who in turn has been forced to make demands on Tidbecks to solve the problem. The discussions of the problem intensified in 2004 and numerous consultants and experts have since been engaged to find a suitable solution.

It took until late 2009 before a product that could solve the problem was found, and in January 2010 Tidbecks decided to invest in an ADF energy optimizer from Comsys AB.

"Problems with the voltage disturbances caused by flicker is a huge growth market for us and globally we expect these problems to become more and more common due to lack of capacity in the existing power grid infrastructure," says CEO Marcus Löfgren.

Comsys has quickly become one of the leaders in the Power Quality field and is currently represented by partnerships in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Entry into the North American energy market is planned in late 2010.

The environmental technology company Comsys at Ideon in Lund has received an order from Seattle based Microsoft. Comsys will perform an extensive power quality and energy analysis at one of Microsoft's data centers in North America.

Comsys have developed a technology, ADF, that stabilises the voltage in the power grid in realtime and minimizes the risk of power outages. The technology can make possible energy savings of approximately 10 percent by making connected machines consume power more energy efficient by making the voltage higher and more stable. The Microsoft site were the Comsys technology is considered to be installed is isolated from the electricity grid, as the equipment is dependent on stable and even supply of electricity. 

Power is today generated using generators to minimize the disturbances allways present in the electricity grid. Exactly what the order is worth, CEO Peter Ström did not say, but he says that it is significant. Comsys was founded in 1996 by, among others, Peter Ström, and today has 10 employees. The Board of Comsys contains names as E. ON 's former CEO Lars Frithiof and Leif Engstrom, former logistics director for TAC, now part of the Schneider Group.

Lund based Comsys AB has signed a distribution agreement with EPCOS, a German company (www.epcos.com) which means that Comsys products will be launched in the Asian market.

In early autumn the company will launch with EPCOS products at a trade show in Shanghai, China. But the entry into Asia is only part of Comsys strategy to distribute its products globally.

In the current situation Comsys itself handles the Swedish, Dutch and German market.
Recently an agreement was signed with a new partner in Denmark, which they hope to close the first business before your holiday with. Comsys is also negotiating with partners in Norway and Sweden and are looking at potential collaborations in Germany and Holland, which is scheduled to be in place before the end of the year. An establishment in North America is scheduled for next spring. So far, Comsys includes names as Sandvik, Öresundskraft, Vattenfall, Volvo and TetraPak at it's customer reference list. Recently even Höganäs AB invested in Comsys ADF system to a value of around ten million.

"We have kept a low profile for several years and worked closely with our customers to finalize the ADF technology. This year we are investing significantly into market development," says Comsys CEO Peter Ström.
