Survalent Technology has commissioned a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for the City of Troy, Ala.

Troy's municipal utility serves over 7,800 customers via four electrical substations and more than 170 miles of primary and secondary power lines. The line and service crews are responsible for the construction and maintenance of the electric distribution system.

"This is Troy’s first SCADA system, where Survalent provided turnkey database and screen graphic development, as well as a local consultant/integrator to assist with substation services," explains Survalent's Steve Strauss. "This system will allow Troy to view screens created for their SCADA system on smart phones and tablets."
