New SCADA system installed for major SC utility

Survalent Technology has commissioned a new SCADA system for Easley Combined Utilities, South Carolina.

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, April 5, 2013 -- Survalent Technology, the most trusted provider of smart grid solutions for the control room, announced that it has commissioned a new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for Easley Combined Utilities, South Carolina.

Easley Combined Utilities is a citizen-created, not-for-profit, locally owned and locally controlled utility. The Easley City Water and Light Plant was created in 1911, and the city's first electricity supply was generated in 1912 to operate pumps at the water treatment plant. They are a member of ElectriCities of North Carolina (ECNC), Piedmont Municipal Power Agency (PMPA), and South Carolina Association of Municipal Electric Association (SCAMPS).

The new system features Survalent's highly available, open-architecture system based on Windows Server. It includes several of Survalent's open system applications, including: WorldView, SCADA Explorer, Command Sequence, Event Data Recording, IED Wizard and Control Panel, SCADA Add-In, Master/Slave Alarm Suppression, Remote Alarm Annunciation, Load Curtailment, Virtual RTU, System Configuration Status, MultiSpeak and Dynamic Voltage Reduction.

"We are pleased that Easley has selected Survalent to upgrade their existing Electric/Water system," states Steve Strauss, Vice President of Sales for the Eastern United States. "Many municipalities use one SCADA system for the control and monitoring for multiple utility services. Our SCADA system provides the flexibility to easily serve multiple groups in the same utility including Electric, Water, Wastewater and Gas."
