ABB subsidiary Ventyx has signed two agreements with South African utility Eskom for software licenses of Ventyx's supervisory control and data acquisition and distribution management system (SCADA/DMS). The deal is valued at more than $7 million.

"With an increasingly urban population, demand for electricity in Africa is rising fast, increasing pressure on utilities to maximize the availability and efficiency of their networks," says Johan Engelbrecht, Ventyx's sales director for Africa. "Ventyx network management and equipment reliability solutions help utilities reduce operating and maintenance costs while improving reliability of service."

Eskom, which will also deploy the Ventyx Equipment Reliability solution in its Koeberg nuclear power station, generates 95% of the electricity used in South Africa, and approximately 45% across all Africa.
