GE T&D India—a power transmission and distribution player—has bagged a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and advanced distribution management solution (ADMS) project for distribution operations in the cities of Jammu and Srinagar.
The order worth approximately Rs 1730 crore was awarded by the Jammu & Kashmir Power Development Department (JKPDD) through a competitive bidding process. It includes a 5-year maintenance services contract and the supply and integration of a host of solutions in the overall distribution network in the two cities.
On the announcement, GE T&D India CEO Pitambar Shivnani said, “GE T&D is proud to partner with the Jammu & Kashmir Power Development Department which is working tirelessly at improving the availability, reliability and quality of power supply, whilst minimizing AT&C losses. The commitment towards the implementation of this technology is a major step towards realizing the vision of 24×7 power supply to all consumers in the twin cities of Jammu and Srinagar.”
The technology solution being executed for this project is used mainly for 24×7 power supply, reduction of power losses and real-time data monitoring and control of distribution network from a centralized place. This will determine the setting up of reliable and ‘no manual touch’ systems for system control/data collection and adoption of information technology in the area of energy accounting.
SCADA technology reduces aggregate technical and commercial losses and enables real-time monitoring and control of the electric distribution network, handling of loads during load shedding and restoration and plugging of pilferage points.
Implementation of the SCADA and ADMS also results in the greater supply of quality power, faster identification of faults and early restoration of power supply and last but not least, proper planning and design of the distribution network.
