UMEME, the leading electricity distribution company in Uganda, has launched a multi-million dollar digital solution that will significantly reduce outages and ensure speedy response times. In their continued effort to deliver value for money, UMEME has rolled out the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology, which practically promises to significantly limit unforeseen power interruptions.

SCADA, which has been successfully tested in Uganda, will allow UMEME to monitor, control and operate all the substations on the network across the country. The system gives realtime knowledge of UMEME’s assets on the network including switches and transformers.

SCADA was lauched by the Ugandan Energy Minister Hon. Hillary Onek
