Ness to deliver dispatching system to CEZ

Ness Technologies, a provider of information-technology solutions, has announced the signing of a contract with Czech power-distribution company CEZ Distribution to deliver a dispatching system for its distribution network management in a deal worth CZK250m (£8.3m).

The system will replace five different dispatching systems so that, if necessary, management of one region can be taken over by another.

Under the contract, Ness will provide the distribution-management system, the migration and integration of data, the creation of interfaces to other systems run by CEZ and the required hardware and software infrastructure.

Another key element is the delivery of a full-system simulator for dispatchers.
