Survalent Technology has commissioned a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for Ontario-based Kenora Hydro Electric Corp., which distributes electricity to 4,800 residential customers and 820 general service customers.

The new system features Survalent's open-architecture system based on Windows Server 2008. It includes several of Survalent's open system applications, including WorldView, SCADA Explorer, IED Wizard and Control Panel, SCADA Add-In, Remote Alarm Annunciation, and System Configuration Status.

"We are pleased to add Kenora Hydro to our growing number of SCADA customers," says Paul Stirpe, Survalent’s vice president of sales for Canada. “Kenora selected Survalent for their SCADA system to take advantage of our ease-of-use applications, solid system reliability and the ability to integrate with other systems such as [advanced metering infrastructure] to support further smart grid applications and functionality.”
