Telvent GIT SA, a real-time IT solutions and information provider, has announced that it will provide New Zealand's Unison Networks Ltd. with its advanced distribution management system (DMS) to support the utility's increasing investment in smart infrastructure.

Unison will use Telvent technology to replace many of its existing systems, combining energy management into a single integrated platform. Telvent says the DMS system will include SCADA, distribution management and outage management functionalities.

With Telvent’s solutions, Unison will have the ability to optimize its smart grid capabilities through the analysis of real-time data and self-healing automation. The integrated system and unified data analytics will provide time and cost savings, negating inefficiencies of having to perform operations on multiple platforms. Additionally, with just one system to maintain and monitor, Unison can provide greater network reliability to its customers, Telvent adds.
