Survalent Technology has commissioned a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for the City of Manassas, Va., which owns and maintains the electric distribution system within its city limits.

According to Survalent, Manassas' electrical system consists of 205 miles of primary lines, 15,150 electric meters, six electric substations, and 31 diesel generators that are used to reduce electric costs in the city. The city is a member of Municipal Electric Power Association of Virginia and Virginia Municipal Electric Association No. 1.

“The Survalent Master Station Software is used to provide SCADA for both the Manassas electric and water departments,” notes Steve Strauss, Survalent’s vice president of sales for the eastern U.S. “Many municipals are able to lower the purchase cost, support cost and cost of administration by combining the SCADA requirements of several departments into one SCADA system.”
