The project includes an upgrade of Kuwait town district control centre’s Energy Management System (EMS), a new Integrated Distribution Management System (IDMS) and an Asset Management System (AMS).
Through its e-terraplatform and e-terradistribution solutions, Alstom will create a single system for managing the medium and high voltage operations of the Kuwait Town District Control Center.
In addition to managing the real-time operations of the grid, the system access will be extended to maintenance departments to better manage MEW’s assets, review their health index, and decide on appropriate maintenance strategies.
Using International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC’s) Common Information Model (CIM) 61970 and IEC 61968 standards over a service oriented architecture, Alstom will combine the data and events from a variety of sources (grid operations, reliability analysis calculations, asset management functions, and maintenance coordination) into integrated processes at the enterprise asset management level.
