ISA Bolivia Selects OSI Technology for a New Transmission SCADA System

Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI) has been selected by Interconexión Eléctrica ISA Bolivia S.A. (ISA Bolivia)—a South American power transmission operator—to supply a new SCADA system based on OSI's monarch™ operational technology (OT) platform. This will replace their current system with a fully modernized platform that delivers comprehensive functionalities for the efficient and secure operation of their transmission network.

This new system will feature OSI's next-generation, .NET-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), Remote/Mobile Browser-based User Interface, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, Communications Front-end Processor, Real-time and Historical Trending, Advanced Alarm Management System, Data Engineering and Maintenance Subsystem, and Network Topology Processor. In a subsequent phase of the project, Energy Management System applications may be added to enable full transmission network analysis functionality for operations planning.

"OSI is proud to have been selected once again by the ISA corporation to provide technology for one of their control centers—their fourth to be equipped with an OSI control system," said Sergio Bajetti, OSI's vice president of European and Latin American operations. "This new project further strengthens the strategic partnership that both companies began in 2012 when ISA initially selected OSI as a technology vendor. We view this as a testament to OSI's longstanding customer-first mentality and outstanding customer support."
