United Energy in Melbourne has contracted to replace its current Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system with OASyS SCADA technology. The new system, provided by Telvent, is a multi-utility single platform for managing electricity (and gas from Multinet Gas) distribution networks serving nearly 1.3 million combined customers in Melbourne, Australia.

Telvent’s flexible, open architecture OASyS SCADA system will allow for easy integration with the utilities’ existing Distribution Management System and OSI PI Historian. By integrating data collection for both the electric and gas distribution networks into a single platform, UE and MG can use comprehensive, real-time data to improve daily operations and increase efficiencies. Additional benefits include fast historical data retrieval and support for multiple communication protocols that will lead to extended life of existing field devices.
