Open Systems International, Inc. has been selected to provide a new SCADA/EMS to Cross Texas Transmission, LLC based on OSI's monarch platform.
CTT is a new Texas electric transmission utility selected by the Public Utility Commission of Texas to design, build and own transmission facilities for the interconnection of renewable generation in the Panhandle of Texas, one of the areas in which the Public Utility Commission designated Competitive Renewable Energy Zones (CREZ). The facilities that CTT owns include approximately 235 miles of double circuit 345 kV transmission lines and three 345 kV stations. CTT is also currently developing additional facilities in the Brazos Valley region of Texas.
CTT's new SCADA/EMS system is set to include the advanced functionality presented by OSI's next-generation Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Advanced Alarm Management System. In addition, the system will include OSI’s CHRONUS™ next generation historian, a highly efficient data warehousing and business intelligence application suite, designed specifically to handle high fidelity data collection and archiving of massive real-time data sets. This robust and fully featured SCADA/EMS system is the evolution of an OSI monarch SCADA system delivered in an initial phase, in 2014.
Founded in 2008, CTT is a designated transmission service provider that constructs, owns and operates transmission facilities and lines to help deliver energy to homes and businesses across Texas. Based in Austin, with additional offices in Amarillo and College Station, CTT's statewide presence serves to support several regions across the Lone Star State.
