Lima, October 2nd, 2017 – Enel Peru opened a new Control Centre that supervises and monitors the existing ten generation premises and will remotely operate the new three renewable energy generation projects of the Company, once these start operations. The new room is designed to work 24/7, thus contributing to improve reliability in Peru’s electricity system.
“With this new Control Centre, we will be able to remotely operate the 332 MW generated by our renewable power plants Rubí, Wayra I and Ayanunga, from our headquarters in Lima”, stated Carlos Temboury, Country Manager of Enel Peru. “The implementation of this centre is part of our modernisation process. Currently, we have around 2,000 MW (Megawatts) of hydraulic and thermal energy operations in different parts of Peru, which are monitored and controlled in real time”.
The new Control Centre has the Scada Spectum Power 3.10 Control System, which ⸺through a video wall with 70-inch displays⸺ optimises the energy resources used in power plants of the Company. This system can be implemented in multiple servers to distribute the information load, thus improving processes and providing greater reliability in the supervision and control of power plants, in case of any eventuality.
The power plants that are currently supervised through this technology are the Huinco, Matucana, Callahuanca, Moyopampa, Huampaní, Chimay and Yanango hydraulic power plants, as well as theSanta Rosa, Ventanilla and Malacas thermal power plants. In addition, it serves almost 200 free clients of Enel Generación Perú in real time.
Next stage will consist in remotely operating Rubí Solar Power Plant, Wayra I Wind Power Plant and Ayanunga Hydropower Plant; these projects belong to its subsidiary, Enel Green Power Peru, and will start business operations next year.
