According to the IEA, renewable energy is now the fastest growing sector in the energy mix and accounts for almost a fifth of all the electricity produced worldwide. The world’s total primary energy supply has increased from just below 6,000 Mtoe in 1971 to just over 12,000 Mtoe in 2009 with oil dropping from a total of 42% 1973 to 32.8% in 2009. With rapidly expanding residential and commercial areas, reliable power supply to customers require continuous monitoring and control. MAPS SCADA is not bound to any specific hardware type, has a library of free drivers to connect to any PLC together with high availability hot-standby solutions which makes it an ideal choice in an industry where robustness and reliability is key. MAPS SCADA offers great flexibility to customers.

EDF Hartlepool Power Station
Hartlepool power station is a nuclear power station situated on the northern bank of the mouth of the River Tees, 2.5 mi (4.0 km) south of Hartlepool in County Durham, North East England. The station has a net electrical output of 1,190 megawatts, which is 2% of Great Britain’s peak electricity demand of 60 GW. Electricity is produced through the use of two advanced gas-cooled reactors (AGR). Hartlepool was only the third nuclear power station in the United Kingdom to use AGR technology. Hartlepool power station was also the first power station to be built as close to a major urban area.
