As part of the DoD utility privatization, CLP was tasked to implement an installation-wide SCADA system at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord. CLP Engineering completed the design, installation, and commissioning of a substation level SCADA system for the Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s medium voltage electrical distribution system. The new SCADA system included replacement of existing substation relays, a radio-based secured communication network, automation controllers, firewalls, and SCADA servers. 

The SCADA system provides the user with all relevant system data from all substations and a handful of distribution smart switches and reclosers inclusive of alarms, statuses, metering, and other relevant system data. The system uses a primary server and a backup server to run HMI & Historian software. Live system statuses, metering, monitoring, and alarms are visually presented on user-controlled large displays in the Master SCADA Control Room. Historical data is stored in a historian server to be used for long-term reporting and trending. The SCADA system is designed to be cyber-secure and compliant with NIST IR7628.
