Ventyx, an ABB company, has signed a new contract with transmission system operator Elektro-Slovenija Doo (ELES) to implement a new national control center in Slovenia using the Ventyx Network Manager SCADA/EMS solution. Product licensing and implementation for the project is valued at $4.8 million.

The new system is designed to facilitate cross-border power trades throughout the region, helping ELES meet the latest directives from the European Union, as well as rules from the European Networks of Transmission System Operators for Electricity.

Ventyx's SCADA/EMS is a control center that helps electric power transmission companies manage complex energy system processes, while ensuring the required levels of cybersecurity, according to the company.

The new Ventyx system is expected to be operational by the end of 2013.
