Alstom Grid has been awarded a €13 million order by the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) in Kuwait for the modification of the Jahra District Control Center, to implement Alstom Grid’s advanced IDMS, “integrated Distribution Management Solution”.

The Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) in Kuwait plans to implement Alstom Grid's advanced integrated Distribution Management Solution for the Jahra District Control Center. During the course of the project, Alstom Grid will also provide a comprehensive set of support services to MEW.

This project will bring to the country a state-of-the-art Energy Management and Distribution System, with latest features of Alstom Grid’s e-terra solution suite. It will become a foundation for a full integration of smart grid applications to support Kuwait’s need for greater grid efficiency and reliability.

The project is based on Alstom Grid’s e-terra platform and e-terra distribution grid management solutions. These suites of applications are developed to meet the operational needs of dispatchers and network operators, and are at the heart of the Energy Management System (EMS) for electrical networks.
