Ventyx has signed two significant software license agreements worth more than $7 million with the South African utility, Eskom. Under the new agreements, Eskom will undertake the largest implementation in Africa of Ventyx's supervisory control and data acquisition/distribution management system (SCADA/DMS) for real-time network monitoring and control of electric power operations.
Eskom is among the top seven utilities in the world in terms of generation capacity, and among the top nine in terms of sales volume. The utility generates approximately 95 percent of the electricity used in South Africa, and approximately 45 percent across all Africa. It generates, transmits and distributes electricity to industrial, mining, commercial, agricultural and residential customers and redistributors.
