January 11, 2011 — Telvent expanded its partnership with China South Grid Guizhou Electric Power Co. Based on the success of a previous pilot project, Telvent will now provide its distribution management system to Guizhou Power’s entire service territory.
With the expanded use of DMS, Guizhou Power will have the ability to integrate and display data using a single system that provides real-time advanced distribution information and more accurate calculations for planning a smarter grid.
Thanks to this single-source of data, the state-owned utility will save on costs typically needed for additional software and systems. Guizhou Power will also have the ability to share critical data more easily among departments, increasing operational efficiencies and providing a more stable power supply for its 40 million residents.
According to Telvent's CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, “Expanding our relationship with Guizhou Power is the best proof that we are providing valuable smart grid solutions for our clients. We are pleased that our accurate data and analytics have helped improve operations and we look forward to continuing this partnership. ”
Telvent has developed and deployed advanced information management systems for the energy industry for nearly 50 years. Today, more than 500 utilities worldwide rely on Telvent technology and solutions, including advanced metering infrastructure projects for Vattenfall, Fortum and SCADA, DMS, GIS or OMS projects for Consumers Energy, Progress Energy, Distribution Grids of Elektra, Emcali, Saesa and CNFL.
