ESB Networks future-proofs Ireland’s electricity network to meet surging consumption.

Marguerite Sayers, Managing Director ESB Networks and John Donnelly, Country Manager at Oracle Ireland were on hand to announce that ESB Networks has substantially upgraded its technology underpinning the operation of Ireland’s electricity network. Using the latest Oracle technology, ESB Networks manages the Distribution system to deliver a reliable electricity supply to all domestic and commercial premises.

ESB Networks is responsible for the safe and reliable management of the electricity network that powers Ireland’s critical infrastructure, including public transport systems and emergency services. These require the most reliable and resilient energy supply available. The company has chosen Oracle SuperCluster and Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) to manage Ireland’s electricity in real time and to facilitate the ongoing development of the electricity network to meet the current and future needs of the country.
