Survalent Technology says it has commissioned a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for Wiregrass Electric Cooperative, which provides service to over 22,000 consumer-members in Houston; Geneva County, Ala.; and parts of Dale, Coffee and Covington counties in Alabama.

The new system features Survalent's open-architecture system based on Windows Server. It includes proprietary applications such as Worldview, Command Sequencing, Event Data Recorder, SCADA Add-In, IED Wizard, SCADA Replicator and others.

Wiregrass purchases wholesale power from PowerSouth Energy Cooperative, a generation and transmission cooperative of which Wiregrass Electric is a member/owner. The company is a member of the Alabama Rural Electric Cooperative Association and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
