Staff of Hitachi Energy, contractors for the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) Upgrade Project, recently visited GRIDCo to gain first-hand information on the status of the Project.

The team of two (2) Project Managers from Hitachi ABB, met with the GRIDCo Project Team (from the System Operations Department and MIS Section), tasked with the SCADA works, to review the project plan and ensure that, the agreed milestones of the project are met.

The week-long meeting, chaired by the Director of System Operations, Mr. Frank Otchere, featured design workshops to review and finalise the design of the new SCADA system. A review of required equipment was also conducted to facilitate the procurement and installation processes.

The SCADA Upgrade project will upgrade GRIDCo’s Network Manager System (NMS) application and Servers to the latest versions, making it more robust against software attacks, as well as increasing its functionalities. The project also includes a new video wall for the System Control Centre and a backup control centre for emergency situations.
