The infrastructure and cities sector of Siemens has won an order worth around Rs.130 crore from the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MSEDCL) to modernise its electricity distribution management system.

Apart from improving reliability of the distribution network and minimising distribution losses, the solution is a major step towards Smart Grid.

Siemens will manage the entire project in addition to the development, manufacture, implementation and commissioning of SCADA/DMS supervisory control centres for eight cities under the Restructured Accelerated Power Development Reforms Program (R-APDRP) of the Central Government. The project is to be commissioned by June 2013.
