Muscat, November 2012 Mazoon Electricity Company announced the completion of the design and configuration of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) project in its Al Rumais substation in Barka. The project, in the South Al Batinah governorate, aims to further enhance the monitoring and control levels of the distribution network in the licensed areas and significantly reducing unscheduled disruptions and electrical outages.
The SCADA team responsible for the project, supplied, fixed and commissioned the new Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) in Al Ruamis substation interfaced with the Mazoon Control Centre operating from its regional building in Mawaleh. Following the extensive training the team underwent during the first phase of the unique venture in Governorates of Al Sharqiya North and South, Al Dakhliya and Al Batinah South, this project is the first to be solely developed and completed by the SCADA team without the consultation of contractors and subcontractors.
Commenting on the successful completion of the project, Yaqoub Al Saidi, SCADA Engineer, said, “Mazoon Electricity Company aims to enhance its capabilities to reduce technical and administrative challenges which stations, distribution networks and systems tend to face in the industry. The company continues to upgrade its systems and long term strategic plans to avoid unscheduled disruptions to the network in future. Implementing such projects will increase our responsiveness and help establish a framework which delivers quality services to our customers.”
Al Saidi added, “By monitoring and evaluating our customer services and operations, we can further guarantee an improved and up-to-date technical framework which we will continue to develop and explore to deliver new high standard technologies.”
In line with company’s strategic vision in establishing an advanced distribution network, the SCADA team is currently in the second phase of the project’s development in addition to upgrading maintaining electrical control systems in other stations.
