OPEN SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL, INC. Virginia's Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative Selects OSI Technology for a New SCADA/DMS

Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI) has been awarded a contract by Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) for a new SCADA and Distribution Management System (DMS). Based on OSI's monarch operational technology (OT) platform, this new system will replace SVEC's legacy Siemens SCADA system, modernizing the utility's distribution grid operations.

In addition to OSI's secure and scalable SCADA platform, this new system features natively integrated DMS components from OSI's Spectra DMS suite, including Distribution Network Operating Model; interfaces to SVEC's Geographic Information System (GIS), Outage Management System (OMS), and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL); as well as Operator Electronic Logbook; Field Device Commissioning; CHRONUS , OSI's next-generation, time series-based historian; and Voyager , OSI's web-based and mobile user interface.
