Forcelink at CIRED, the major International Electricity Conference & Exhibition in June 2013

Forcelink will be presenting at www.cired2013.org on the topic “Asset management at City Power Johannesburg enabled by ICT”, with colleagues from City Power and Siemens. CIRED, the major International Electricity Conference & Exhibition is the leading Forum where the Electricity Distribution Community meets every two years in various venues in Europe, with a world-wide perspective and participation. The 2013 CIRED Conference is the 22nd in the series and will take place in Stockholm, at the Kistamässan in Kista.

The presentation will deal with the improvement of distribution grid operations at City Power, Johannesburg, South Africa, based on better knowledge of asset condition in the field and related maintenance, replacement or expansion requirements, derived from accurate and consistent (near) real-time information acquired via the combination of state of the art SCADA and mobile Workforce Management systems.
