    The Challenge

    • Frequent loss of power due to network outages which take time to identify, repair and replace.  

    • Critical facilities, hospitals, universities, airports, shopping centers and factories are all affected.

    • The sheer size of the network area and the lack of SCADA coverage means that locating a fault can take a lot of time in rural areas.

    • The environment is harsh and any overhead power line fault could cause a bushfire, so they must be localized, disconnected and isolated as quickly as possible. 

    • This presents a risk to public safety, as a large proportion of the network relies on overhead conductors.

    The Solution

    Greater reliability and connectivity with EcoStruxure, allowing faster and more efficient management of the network

    “To be able to restore power to the majority of customers on a feeder in under a minute is something that has never been done in the history of SA Power Networks. Without Schneider, we probably would not have progressed as far as we have and as quickly as we have.”
