PSI Delivers Control System for Main Control Centre of Saarländische Kooperation

PSIcontrol for network control of electricity, gas, water and district heating divisions

Berlin, 2 December 2014 – PSI AG has been contracted by the Saarländische Kooperation with the implementation of a new joint control system for the four divisions electricity, gas, water and district heating. The Saarländische Kooperation consists of the four network operators Creos Deutschland GmbH, energis-Netzgesellschaft mbH, Stadtwerke Saarbrücken AG and VSE Verteilnetz GmbH. The four companies have been working together in different areas since 2009, including the main control centre and joint network documentation. PSIcontrol will replace the existing network control systems.

PSIcontrol will be implemented as a modern, expandable and standardised control system with an integrated concept across every company and area.

The new, highly available system not only covers all of todays and future requirements, but in particular provides accelerated measures for error detection, error limitation and error elimination in the specific networks by high-quality network calculations.

On the basis of its own software products, PSI AG develops and integrates complete solutions for energy management (gas, oil, electricity, heat, energy trading), production management (mining, metals, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs 1,700 persons worldwide.
