Gatekeeper Systems will install NaviGate, an off-the-shelf solution that provides SCP management and operations staff direct graphical access to electric network facilities data and customer data. The system also provides immediate access to critical transactional operational data including outage and customer call data from the SCP trouble-call system. SCP staff will be able to easily access enterprise data and derived outage information through the NaviGate web browser-based map user interface. The NaviGate Outage Management Module will provide SCP operations and dispatch personnel the tools to easily group trouble calls into outages and assign repair crews in an efficient and timely manner when outages occur.
South Central Power is among the largest power cooperatives in the U.S. and serves roughly 110,000 members in Ohio. "This system will provide our dispatchers the tools necessary to respond more efficiently to storm related outages and emergencies such as the ones we experienced last December. This enhancement should come as welcome news to our entire membership" said Ajit Kadakia, Executive Vice-President of SCP.
South Central Power joins FirstEnergy Corp., Akron, OH, and Peoples Energy, Chicago, IL as the latest adopters of this modern data fusion software suite.
