Advanced Control Systems Responds to Severe Midwest Floods with Record Breaking Delivery Time for ITC Midwest

Advanced Control Systems, Inc. (ACS), a leading provider of smart grid automation and system solutions to global utilities, recently completed an expedited delivery of two ACS substation automation systems to ITC Midwest LLC, a subsidiary of ITC Holdings Corp. (NYSE: ITC), in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The historic flooding caused record-breaking river levels that forced tens of thousands to evacuate and cost communities millions of dollars in estimated damages. Following the restoration of power supply to delivery companies servicing residents of these devastated communities, ITC Midwest collaborated with ACS to rapidly configure replacement high voltage transmission substation automation systems for several key facilities.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. has signed an $89 million energy savings performance contract with Johnson Controls, Inc. to apply advanced energy conservation solutions, including a biomass gasification system, to the campus.
