Improving security, implementing cost-effective maintenance and promoting efficient upgrading techniques for current SCADA systems
SCADA has been playing a critical role in the energy and utilities sector. Over the years the SCADA for energy and utilities market has transformed due to the far-reaching impact of technology, and the fact that SCADA systems can empower a quantum change in the way companies restructure business processes to respond to real-time knowledge flow, delivering business system integration with SCADA operations.
End users are utilizing SCADA technology for a range of operational improvement applications and linking these to business processes for a variety of purposes, both internal and external to the enterprise.
Current infrastructure development in India:
- The Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL) invested around $22 billion during 2007-2012 and it is expected to double the capital expenditure during the period 2012-2017
- Under the R-APDRP program, 77 towns have been identified for SCADA implementation. India is also formulating its plans towards smart grid implementation on a pilot basis, and the deployment of SCADA systems will pave the way to achieve this goal
- GAIL India won rights to lay 1,550 km of natural gas pipelines, where SCADA would play a vital role in the projects success
- Huge investments in electric power transmission and distribution, oil and gas pipelines, water and wastewater systems, city gas distribution, and others are coming up in India, where there would be major requirements for scada and control systems
With the current need for new automation technologies for India’s expanding infrastructure network, IQPC is proud to announce its 2nd Annual SCADA for Energy and Utilities, scheduled from 29 – 30 October 2012 in Delhi. This conference will bring together automation, instrumentation and electrical professionals from energy and utilities, oil and gas, government and regulatory authorities to talk, discuss and implement new SCADA technologies for various upcoming projects.
