Minneapolis, Minn., January 6, 2010 — Open Systems International and Indian partner, Chemtrols Ltd. won a contract by Tata Power Co. of Mumbai, India.
The multiphase project will upgrade the automation infrastructure that serves the central Mumbai and surrounding areas.
The scope of this contract includes the replacement of multiple, nodal SCADA systems that monitor and control district level grids, as well as a new unified master system and operator training simulator, intended to manage all grid operations from the central control room at Tata Power’s headquarters in Mumbai.
Originally founded more than nine decades ago, Tata Power is India’s largest private utility; maintaining a generation capacity of more than 3,000 MW, servicing millions of India consumers; using a variety of generation resources that include thermal, hydro, solar and wind power.
Phase one of this project — the replacement and upgrade of three of Tata Power’s seven nodal SCADA systems throughout Mumbai and implementation of a new Unified SCADA system at Tata Power’s Mumbai CCR — is poised to improve and modernize Tata Power’s Mumbai power transmission and distribution grid operations, through the unification and consolidation of real-time grid monitoring and control; resulting in an enhancement in operational efficiency, cyber-security and overall system reliability.
