GE’s Energy Management System (EMS) will provide real-time and remotely managed information on Malawi’s electrical grid and power outages. Aligning with MCA-M’s Infrastructure Development Project, GE Power’s Grid Solutions business completed the installation and commissioning of the EMS and telecommunications systems at 26 substations of the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM).

The project., financed through the Millennium Challenge Corp., will improve efficiency, reliability, security and planning of the transmission network in Malawi. The project will provide ESCOM with the tools to securely interconnect with neighboring countries (Mozambique, Zambia & Tanzania) and reduce technical losses in the transmission system in the medium-term whilst fostering economic growth in the long-term.
