June 30, 2016 - Open Systems International, Inc. (OSI) was selected by Gas Natural Fenosa of Spain to supply a new SCADA system based on OSI's state-of-the-art monarch (Multi-platform Open Network ARCHitecture) platform as part as a new Integrated Control Center of the Velle Valley to be located in A Batundeira, Ourense, in the northwest part of the Spanish region of Galicia.

Gas Natural Fenosa, as one of the largest gas and electricity companies in Spain, has been serving customers for more than 170 years with the objective to serve society through smart and innovative solutions and technology. During its history, Gas Natural Fenosa diversified its business, becoming the first group to integrate gas and electricity, as well as expanding its reach in the gas and electricity markets worldwide.

The system will initially encompass fifty hydroelectric generation complexes, and reflects the compromise of Gas Natural Fenosa with renewable energies and its emphasis on innovation and technological development.
