Wellington utilities management software vendor Abbey Systems has won a $5 million contract with the Bangladesh Power Development Board to provide equipment and software for the monitoring and control of a network of 34 substations around the city of Chittagong, in southern Bangladesh.
Abbey Systems designs and manufactures SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems for water, power and telecomms providers. It provides both software and hardware products.
Several other New Zealand companies – Energy Intellect, Enclosure Technology, Tait Electronics and Innovative Energies and Facility Management Systems – are also involved as providers to the project.
In a statement announcing the win, Abbey Systems marketing manager is quoted as saying: “Innovative use of kiwi technology has eliminated duplication of equipment, giving us a unique competitive advantage”.
Abbey Systems’ local clients include the Royal New Zealand Navy and the Rotorua District Council.
