Consumers Energy gets new OMS from Miner & Miner

Fort Collins, CO, Mar. 8, 2006 — Miner & Miner, a Telvent company, has signed a contract with Consumers Energy to implement outage management for its energy distribution system.

Miner & Miner will supply its Responder outage management system (OMS) to support Consumers Energy’s electric distribution system. The OMS will ensure secure and efficient outage restoration, and will extend the utility’s existing geographic information systems (GIS) solution, allowing it to visualize and locate power outages throughout the network. The new system, to be integrated with SAP, SCADA, and mobile workforce management systems, is scheduled to be operational in August 2007.

Telvent’s chairman and CEO Manuel Sàƒ¡nchez Ortega said Responder is designed to “geospatially locate and identify the cause of a power failure throughout its network.”

Consumers Energy’s search for a new OMS was mandated because the existing outage system was rapidly approaching obsolescence, said a recent press release from Miner & Miner. The utility required a solution capable of automatically displaying real time outages, while providing access to accurate historical outage information, thereby ensuring system reliability, security and stability, in addition to providing seamless integration with their enterprise applications.
