Telvent, the leading real-time IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, announced that the Inter-Regional Distribution Grid Company (IDGC) of Centre Moscow will implement Telvent's advanced distribution management system (DMS) solution to further improve the reliability of its electrical grid.

With the implementation of this smart grid solution, the utility will be able to reduce power losses and operational costs, while improving power quality. 

IDGC is one of the largest utility providers in Russia, serving 11 regions throughout the central and western parts of the country. With Telvent's solution, IDGC gets full network monitoring and control in one complete system to efficiently plan, design, and operate a smart grid to better serve its vast consumer territory. To enhance its network reliability and efficiency, IDGC will integrate Telvent DMS with existing components of its infrastructure, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), outage management system and customer relationship management software. This integration will provide a visual and detailed model of the distribution network to achieve advanced network analysis, fault management and energy analysis on a local and central level. 

According to Telvent's CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, "As utilities throughout the world upgrade to a smarter grid, more emphasis is being placed on maximizing the benefits of distributed management systems. Telvent is proud to partner with IDGC and provide smart grid solutions for its 15 million customers." 

IDGC and Telvent began the first of a three-phase pilot program in November 2010 and expect to complete the DMS implementation by January 2012.
