Untitled - 13A consortium of ICSA (India) and Dongfang Electronics Company Ltd of China has won a SCADA distribution management system in Tamil Nadu. The order, valued at around Rs.jpg140 crore, was placed by state utility Tamil Nadu Generation & Distribution Corporation Ltd (Tangedco). The SCADA-DMS project is part of the Centrally sponsored RAPDRP initiative that aims to bring down ATC losses to 15 per cent by 2012.

According to information available from official sources, the SCADA-DMS project will be implemented in seven towns in Tamil Nadu- Coimbatore, Tirupur, Tirunelveli, Chennai, Madurai, Salem and Tiruchirappalli.

The power ministry has mandated the SCADA scheme for towns that have a population exceeding 4 lakh and input energy of over 350 million kwh. Pan India, SCADA-DMS will be implemented in 71 towns, spread over 19 states, under the aegis of the power ministry. Power Finance Corporation of India is the nodal agency for this project. It may be mentioned that Karnataka is implementing SCADA-DMS in six of its qualifying towns, on its own, without the intervention of the power ministry. There are seven other towns where SCADA will be implemented even though both the population and input energy criteria are not fulfilled. Another four towns - two each in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh - will have SCADA implemented by the respective private power distribution franchisees.

The Union power ministry has empanelled 15 SCADA implementation agencies, and the ICSA-Dongfang consortium is believed to be the first to receive the formal letter of intent.
