October 22, 2012 — Telvent GIT, S.A. will provide New Zealand's Unison Networks Limited with its advanced distribution management system (advanced DMS) to support the utility's increasing investment in smart infrastructure.
Unison will use Telvent technology to replace many of its existing systems, combining energy management into a single integrated platform. This advanced system will include SCADA, distribution management and outage management functionalities, and will provide the core technology for Unison to modernize its electric grid now and in the future.
With Telvent's solutions, Unison will have the ability to optimize its smart grid capabilities through the analysis of real-time data and self-healing automation.
The integrated system and unified data analytics will provide valuable time and cost savings, negating inefficiencies of having to perform operations on multiple platforms. Additionally, with just one system to maintain and monitor instead of four, Unison can provide greater network reliability to its customers.
