Alstom Grid has been selected by the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) to further modernise its grid operations and enhance the management of its network assets through the implementation of a fully integrated grid management solution. The project will include an upgrade of Kuwait town district control center’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.
This new approach combines the previously separated operation and maintenance processes, allowing the operators to have a holistic view of the entire system for increased reliability and efficiency.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with such trusted and forward-thinking partners,” said Karim El-Naggar, Vice President of Network Management Solutions for Alstom Grid.
"Alstom’s leadership in both traditional grid management and smart grid operations will allow the District of Kuwait Town to quickly adapt to future changes in the system, integrate smart devices and applications, and renewable generation, while maintaining the same high standard of efficiency and reliability of their grid.”
