This new distribution dispatch of the central region, aims to endow ENDE’s grid operation with the necessary conditions and instruments for a modern and efficient distribution grid management at the central, south and east regions of the country. The SCADA system, based on Efacec ScateX + platform, is used to achieve this.
This new system to be supplied constitutes a complete communicating and integrated solution with existing ENDE SCADA system using ICCP protocol (also supplied by Efacec) in Luanda. This way, it will be established a national, redundant, and robust system capable to answer the current growing requirements of the electric power distribution system in Angola.
In addition to the ScateX+ supply, the project includes the control centre remodelling at Catumbela substation, located in Benguela, in order to become an up-to-date control centre, equipped with modern meeting rooms and video conference.
The present contract is integrated within the scope of a wider project that aims to improve the electricity and household connections in Benguela province (“Projeto de Eletrificação e Ligações Domiciliares na Província de Benguela”) that the Chinese company CTCE has signed with ENDE.
