Survalent Technology has completed the integration of a distribution management system (DMS) for the municipal utility in Hurricane, Utah, a member of the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems.

The utility, which serves approximately 6,000 customers, owns and operates its own power generation assets to meet peak power demand, including three 1.6 MW Caterpillar diesel generators and six 2 MW Caterpillar natural gas generators.

"The new DMS platform from Survalent Technology will allow them to take full advantage of the new state-of-art GUI and to benefit of all the new applications which have been developed by Survalent on this platform," says Mike Bowdle, vice president of U.S. sales.

Hurricane Power's new system features Survalent's open-architecture system based on Windows. It includes applications such as SmartVU, SCADA Explorer, IED Wizard and Control Panel, and Command Sequencing.
