The founders of the technology are recognized leaders in the energy sector

HUSTON, Texas / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2022 / Camber Energy, Inc. 04.30 NYSE American: CEI (“The collapse“or”The company“) announced on February 15, 2022 the acquisition of its majority-owned subsidiary Viking Energy Group, Inc. (” Viking “), a 51% stake in organizations with intellectual property rights to fully developed, patented, ready-made -for the market patented electrical systems for detecting open transmission and distribution conductors, designed to detect a break in the transmission line, distribution line or communication failure, as well as to immediately stop the power supply line before it reaches the ground.

The importance of technology

  • Increases the stability and reliability of the power grid

  • Improves public safety as downed power lines and electrical equipment are major sources of incendiary events

  • Replacing existing infrastructure is expensive and time consuming. Technologies can be implemented at low cost.


  • The speed (ie half a second) during which the system can detect conduction openings and de-energize the circuit

  • Low cost, particularly for power line solutions because there are limited labor or equipment costs.

The founders of technology

The technologies were developed by Robert Stewart and Ronald Smith, esteemed professionals with years of experience in the power generation, transmission and distribution sectors. Messrs. Stewart and Smith, whose experience is below, will use their relationships in industries around the world to assist the Vikings in integration and sales.
