Power transmission company Alstom Grid has been selected by the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) to modernise grid operations in the country.

Under the terms of the contract, Alstom Grid will enhance the management of MEW’s network assets through the implementation of a grid management solution.

The project involves an upgrade of the Kuwait’s energy management system and provision of a new integrated distribution management system and an asset management system.

Alstom will create a single system for managing the medium and high voltage operations of the Kuwait Town District Control Center through its e-terraplatform and e-terradistribution solutions.

The system’s access will be extended to maintenance departments to better manage the ministry’s assets, review their health index, and decide on appropriate maintenance strategies.
