The project aims to build a mini-SCADA system for Tam Ky city’s electricity (supplying) distribution network. Through the Human Machine Interface (HMI) and the demands of electricity  system operation, this system can  collect the data of the power grid, observe  and control   the equipment effectively and rapidly, ensure maximum automation, increase the reliability, optimize the operation of the distribution network and transmission lines, reduce electricity losses, promote the effects of error detection systems and prevent widespread power blackouts, ensure safe transmission in the 500kV power system.

According to Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Hoang Quoc Vuong, the Central Power Cooperation has invested to build mini-SCADA systems in four cities of the Central and Highlands region with a preferential loan of 10.5 million EUR from Finnish government since 2006.

Continuously, two mini-SCADA systems will be built in two cities Tam Ky and Pleiku (Gia Lai province) by Finnish preferential loan of 4.5 million EUR. These systems will help to develop smart girds in Viet Nam and raise the trust in local electricity supply.

According to Finnish Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka, Finnish technology will be applied to Tam Ky city’s mini-SCADA project to raise the trust, effect and safeness in operating and supplying electricity. The project is expected to be completed in the 2nd quarter of 2018.
