Our Approach

  • The Challenge

    To deliver a new 38 kV GIS Substation with full Substation Control System (SCS) capability and Scada observability that will enable the continued development of the distribution network to accommodate new customers.

  • The Solution

This system provided an integrated solution for all substation automation functions such as remote control, process acquisition, automation, local operation, monitoring and diagnostics.
