Australia-based utility SA Power Networks has selected Telvent to provide a distribution management system that will support its network of more than 800,000 electricity customers.

Telvent's real-time solution will ultimately deliver self-healing power outage and demand response capabilities to drive faster and more effective management of peak load events and embedded generation.

"Our solution will provide the data and detail necessary for the utility to deliver even better customer service," says Ignacio Gonzalez, chairman and CEO of Telvent. "Furthermore, the flexibility of our technology will serve the utility's operations today while being adaptable to future conditions and needs."

Telvent notes that its distribution management system is deployed in more than 25 countries and serves 68 million utility customers.
