Canadian utility Nova Scotia Power has selected Schneider Electric, a specialist in energy management, to implement an advanced distribution management system (ADMS)-based outage management system (OMS) as an integrated smart grid solution to improve operational efficiencies and outage management response and restoration.

Currently in the implementation phase, the solution utilizes Nova Scotia Power's existing investment in Schneider's GIS technology and provides seamless, embedded OMS and ADMS technologies, according to Schneider.

The company says that by using integrated voice response, work order management and crew dispatch capabilities, Nova Scotia Power will be able to monitor, analyze and manage its network of nearly 500,000 customers for more rapid response to power outages.

"This project represents a new trend in the smart grid industry - the integration of OMS as a seamless application of smart grid solutions to improve operational efficiencies and safety," says Schneider's Laurent Vernerey.

The project is expected to be fully operational in late 2014, Schneider notes.
