Netcontrol in the Middle East

Netcontrol was once again at the Middle East Electricity Show in Dubai in February. There has been significant interest in Netcontrol's Substation & Distribution Automation products from the Middle East, building on the smart grid projects Netcontrol is undertaking with the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC). The stand which was co-run by Netcontrol and our UAE partner Autochim Systems was extremely busy, and the recently launched Netcon 100 Smart Substation RTU and Netcon 500 Substation Gateway/RTU receiving particular attention. Netcontrol received a wide range of visitors from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Qatar, India, Pakistan, Lebanon and Egypt to name a few.

This year the interest in Netcontrol's IEC 61850 solutions for Distribution Automation Systems (DAS) was once again very high.

Also demonstrated on the stand was;

NME 200         Remote Overhead Disconnector/Switch

Radius PDR     Utility Data Radio for remote control of
                       electrical networks

FastNet           RTU for Secondary Distribution Switches 
                       and Reclosers, 

NMS 100         Remote controller/RTU for Ring Main Units

The edition of Technical Review Middle East produced to coincide with the show, Issue 1 - 2013, also featured an editorial covering one of Netcontrol's Middle East RTU projects.
