Singapore --- (METERING.COM) --- June 16, 2011 - Singapore PowerGrid (SPPG) has selected to work with Telvent on implementing the next generation of GIS and outage management technology, the company has announced.

With multiple Telvent solutions paired with Esri South Asia and Microsoft platforms, SPPG will be able to reduce service disruptions and associated costs caused by power outages.

SPPG will integrate Telvent’s Responder Outage Management System (OMS) with its ArcFM Enterprise GIS and Esri Inc.’s ArcGIS platform. This will assist the utility with not only sustaining its System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) record, but also with the management of its daily operations for the energy utilities network.

SPPG will now be equipped with an improved outage management system that is smart grid ready.

Telvent’s Responder solution is built on the Microsoft platform, using Microsoft SQL Server and the Windows 7 operating system to provide seamless integration, lower cost of ownership, tighter security and increased productivity.
