Activu Corp., a provider of IP-based intelligent visualization and collaboration solutions for command and control center environments, says it has added Delmarva Power to its growing list of utility customers.

Delmarva Power, an energy utility that delivers service to 501,000 electricity customers in the Delaware area, will proactively monitor its electric grid networks in real time at a centralized Command and Control Center for Transmission Line Monitoring that also doubles as an Emergency Management Center in crisis situations.

To improve the safety of its transmission lines and reduce outage and downtimes, Delmarva wanted a flexible visualization and collaboration solution that integrated with the utility’s existing network operating system and software. Activu adds that its solution gives field technicians the ability to send real-time data back to the control room, is cost-effective and will accommodate Delmarva’s future expansion needs.
