December 9, 2014 - Open Systems International. (OSI) installed a control center for Transelec CNOT (Centro Nacional de Operaciones de Transmisión/National Center for Transmission Operations).

The facility for Transelec unifies all of the company’s regional control centers throughout the country, allowing 24 hour surveillance of operations, efficiently and safely, while maintaining a unique and direct relationship with the CDEC (Centro de Despacho Económico de Carga/Center for Economic Load Dispatch), for both the SIC (Sistema Interconectado Central/Central Interconnected System) and the SING (Sistema Interconectado del Norte Grande/Northern Interconnected System).
