Fredericia, Denmark — (METERING.COM) — June 11, 2012 – DONG Energy has selected Telvent GIT, S.A. to supply a full suite of smart grid systems, centered on its advanced distribution management system (ADMS).

These applications will integrate seamlessly with DONG Energy’s existing Telvent GIS system to provide a single, powerful platform that will support all of its business processes from planning to final delivery.

With these smart grid solutions, DONG Energy, the largest power producer in Denmark, will be able to monitor, control and improve its overall knowledge of the state of its network. With the capability to process and incorporate real time data from the field, forecast load demand, and better model distributed generation throughout the network, the ADMS allows the utility to allocate energy across the grid more efficiently and better integrate renewable sources of energy into the network.

In the event of a power disruption, Telvent’s ADMS also supports self healing, incident response capabilities by identifying the fault location and automatically providing dispatchers with decision support recommendations on how best to restore power. These expanded functions will allow DONG Energy to reduce the number of outages, reduce incident response time when outages do occur and ultimately increase network reliability.

“We are pleased to reaffirm our strong relationship with DONG Energy and to provide comprehensive smart grid solutions that allow its distribution network to operate more efficiently,” commented Telvent’s chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez. “Our technology supports utilities throughout the world in making power generation and distribution more intelligent, efficient and sustainable.”
