As one of the largest electricity companies in Europe, the Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (TEİAŞ) is responsible for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity to its consumers across Turkey. With a motto of “Power of Energy,” TEİAŞ proudly serves all the citizens of Turkey with the transmission of electricity in a continuous, reliable and economical manner while remaining sensitive to the environment and promoting the efficient use of resources.
Avinor has long relied on a facility-wide supervisory system to control and coordinate the many airport functions. Avinor needed to enhance system security while ensuring that the system continues to provide highly reliable control of these functions. They also needed to ensure that the system is able to accommodate a significant airport expansion in the near future.
After evaluating multiple providers, TEİAŞ turned to ABB for two solutions and a license for ABB’s Power Reference Case data for the Turkish system to use for comprehensive energy market forecasting. The first of the two solutions, ABB Ability™ Capacity Expansion, is a long-term economic optimization-based electricity generation expansion planning tool. ABB Ability™ PROMOD, the second solution selected by TEİAŞ, is recognized by the industry for its flexibility and breadth of technical capability.
Even prior to project completion, the ABB Ability software solutions were creating clear benefits and improvements through increases in operational productivity and decreases in capital expenditure. “With the insights obtained from ABB Ability Capacity Expansion, TEİAŞ is now able to properly prepare for the future energy demands of more than 80 million Turkish citizens,” said Elif Bintas, assistant manager of the transmission planning department, TEİAŞ.
