Survalent Technology, the most trusted provider of smart grid solutions for the control room, announced today that it has commissioned a new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for the City of Manassas, Virginia.
The City of Manassas owns and maintains the electric distribution system within its city limits. The electrical system consists of 205 miles of primary lines, 15,150 electric meters, six electric substations, and 31 diesel generators that are used to reduce electric costs in the city. They are a member of Municipal Electric Power Association of Virginia (MEPAV) and Virginia Municipal Electric Association No. 1 (VMEA1).
The new system features Survalent’s highly available, open-architecture system based on Windows Server.
