National Energy Company Ukrenergo as part of the modernization of the power grid installed the first interactive dispatch board made by Belgium’s Barco. The board will be launched on March 18, the press service of the company has reported. The board, combined with the operational information complex of the automated dispatch control system, transmits information about the state of the main power equipment of the Western energy system round-the-clock in a multi-window mode.
The equipment allows quickly and conveniently displaying the necessary information on any screen window – separate power hubs, diagrams and schemes. In the coming years, it is planned that the dispatch boards will be updated in all other regional dispatch centers.
The project, worth UAH 17.5 million, was implemented as part of the investment program of the Western energy system for 2018.
Ukrenergo operates trunk and interstate transmission lines, as well as centralized dispatching of the country’s integrated power grids. It is a state-owned enterprise managed by Ukraine’s Finance Ministry. The company will be soon reorganized into a private joint-stock company.
