Western Power Engages TCS to Help Deliver More Resilient Energy Supply to West Australians
Tata Consultancy Services Will Work with the Energy Utility in its Transformation of the Electricity Network
SYDNEY | MUMBAI, March 03, 2022: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) has been selected as a strategic partner by Western Power, a state government-owned energy company, to assist in digitally transforming its software systems as part of the business’s drive to deliver a cleaner and more resilient energy supply to West Australians.
Under the multi-year partnership, TCS has been selected as the primary systems integrator across multiple domains including asset management and network operations as well as secondary systems integrator for asset operations, finance, and the corporate domain.
TCS will provide services that will help underpin Western Power’s commitment to the continual improvement towards network reliability, productivity of field services teams, and safety for customers. More broadly, the TCS partnership will support Western Power’s corporate strategy towards a modular grid, that is innovative and flexible through new tech plugs in and out of the grid. Western Power’s innovative changes in the operation of the grid will unlock future opportunities for customers, businesses, and the State, and provide cleaner and smarter energy solutions.
TCS will also work with Western Power on the Western Australian and Federal government’s flagship Distributed Energy Resources Program virtual power plant pilot – Project Symphony. The two-year pilot aims to aggregate a network of solar-powered homes that collectively generate and store energy, in the same way as traditional thermal power plants, smoothing out the supply and demand for electricity.
“Our network continues to evolve as a result of the growing adoption of renewable energies. Western Power has reached out to organisations with appropriate capability as we deliver on this exciting phase of our transformation,” said Tracy Deveugle-Frink, Head of ICT, Western Power. “TCS has been selected based on their domain knowledge in the utility and engineering sectors. They have a growing establishment in the Western Australian corporate landscape and are well positioned to partner with us as we deliver on our corporate objectives.”
