Customer Story

Kitchener Power Corporation Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc.

Kitchener Power Corporation Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. is a local distribution company responsible for distributing electricity to 80,000 homes and businesses within the City of Kitchener and the Township of Wilmot.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of Kitchener Power Corporation, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. is focused on providing a safe and reliable supply of electricity to its customers.

Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro’s control centre required a monitor wall that would allow the display of multiple windows of information. They were looking for a system that ensured long-life reliability and ongoing ease of use. A long time partner of Christie, Applied Electronics was contracted to design and install a 2x3 array of 50” rear projection screens.

To ensure low maintenance and 24/7 dependability they selected 6 Christie Digital CX50-100U display wall cubes and an FRC 5100 controller. Used with Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro’s existing surveillance software, the display wall facilitates 24/7 monitoring of their power grid.
