Citect Customer Excellence Awards

VRT is the proud recipient of the 2004 Citect Regional and National Excellence Environmental Management Award for the development of the Regional Utilities Management System (RUMS), an enterprise-wide SCADA solution using CitectFacilities for the Australian Department of Defence.

The RUMS project covers the South East Queensland bases of Gallipoli Barracks Enoggera, Amberley Air Force base and Army Aviation Oakey providing a unique set of management tools that deliver sustainable energy conservation benefits.   

The RUMS SCADA system provides an unprecedented level of monitoring of the smart metering network across all three bases, as well as scheduling load and equipment switching.  The system also provides an integration of disparate Building Management Systems into one common user interface. 

The award was officially presented in Brisbane on Wednesday 27thOctober 2004 at the Citect Award Dinner during the Citect User Conference.

As a consequence of the joint VRT/Citect effort in this project, along with the success it has generated, Citect is currently presenting VRT's RUMS solution to its band of Systems Integrators in Europe. VRT has prepared a short demo/video outlining the features and benefits of the RUMS system for facilities owners and managers.
