Western Power taps TCS to aid digital transformation
Western Australian state-owned energy company Western Power has selected Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to help digitally transform its software systems.
Under the multi-year agreement, TCS will act 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 to support Western Power’s commitment towards continually improving its network reliability, productivity of field services teams, and safety for customers, and support the utility in its transition to a flexible, modular grid.
TCS will also work with Western Power on the WA and federal governments’ flagship Distributed Energy Resources Program virtual power plant pilot. The two-year Project Symphony pilot aims to aggregate a network of solar-powered homes that collectively generate and store energy.
“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,” Western Power Head of ICT Tracy Deveugle-Frink said.
“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.”
