Minneapolis, December 28, 2011 — Open Systems International, Inc. won a contract by Blue Ridge Mountain EMC to provide a new and modern Distribution SCADA Master System based on OSI's Monarch platform.

Headquartered in Young Harris, Georgia, BRMEMC is a non-profit, member-owned Rural Electric Cooperative, distributing power from the Tennessee Valley Authority across a 1,150 square-mile service territory that includes three counties in northern Georgia and two counties in western North Carolina.

BRMEMC owns and maintains over 5,800 miles of electric distribution lines and more than 32 miles of transmission lines.

Seeking to enhance and modernize their infrastructure, BRMEMC has elected to replace a legacy Telegyr system with a new Distribution SCADA system based on OSI's Monarch platform. BRMEMC's new system includes OSI's next-generation, .NET based Graphical User Interface (GUI); SCADA platform; Advanced Alarm Management System; Real-time and Historical Trending; Communications Front-end Processor; Historical Information System and Data Archiving; and Calculation & Scripting Subsystem software products, along with the MultiSpeak interoperable interface between monarch and other corporate applications. This system was delivered in record time and has been commissioned.
