Thiebear Posted February 13, 2006 Share Posted February 13, 2006 Feel Good story of the day: http://www.grd.usace.army.mil/news/releases/recon1013006.html The Northwest Regional Control Center will stabilize and control electricity by Polli Barnes Keller Gulf Region North U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mosul, Iraq—There is no totally functioning system in Iraq designed to tie all the elements and control functions of the National Electrical Network together. The Northwest Regional Control Center, or NRCC—a $4.9M system developed to improve the reliability of the country-wide automatic monitoring and control system—is under construction in the Northern provinces. This control center is being built by local construction companies while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides quality assurance and over-watch on the project. The objective of the system is to improve the operation and reliability of the electrical network’s communications and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, or SCADA, systems. The control center will monitor and control more than 40 electrical substations, power plants and transmission lines in six governorates. It will also help stabilize the electrical flow in the northern part of Iraq and evenly distribute the allocation of power throughout the region. “A healthy man should have healthy arms, healthy eyes and a healthy heart,” said Saman Mosai, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project manager-electrical sector. “Without a healthy brain, this healthy body means nothing. It could work…..but in a crazy way!” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
