Smart grid solutions provider Survalent Technology has commissioned a new outage management system (OMS) for Innisfil Hydro in Ontario.

Innisfil Hydro operates nine substations, and there are over 525 kilometers of high-voltage lines under the company's jurisdiction. Survalent says the new OMS features its highly available, open-architecture system based on Windows Server.

"We are pleased to have Innisfil Hydro follow the natural progression to an advanced distribution management system application such as OMS," states Syed Hasan, Survalen's regional sales manager for Canada. "The system will allow Innisfil Hydro to provide more insight to customers during an outage and improve restoration efforts."
