Unicorn Systems to Deliver IT System for South East Europe

Unicorn Systems has won the tender for delivery of the Damas system for transmission capacity sales for the PTC SEE CAO auction office in the region of South East Europe.

Under the project, Unicorn Systems will be responsible for deployment, operation, and service of the Damas trading platform for electronic auctions, providing transparent cross-border electricity trading within the region.

The Damas information system, Unicorn Systems’ flagship product for the power industry, shall provide coordination between transmission system operators, represented by a common auction office, and traders from all over Europe.

Thus, PTC SEE CAO, the company representing  transmission system operators from 8th European region countries, will start using Damas. This information system is already employed e.g. by Czech ČEPS, Slovak SEPS, Italian Terna, Serbian EMS, Irish EirGrid, Romanian Transelectrica and – through their subsidiaries – British National Grid, French RTE, and Dutch TenneT.

“For us, deployment of the Damas trading system for PTC SEE CAO in the region of South East Europe is quite important, as it shall significantly improve our position in the Balkans and generate a number of other business opportunities in this region. I firmly believe our solutions and services will meet every requirement of local customers,”

said Jan Konrád, International Services Director, Unicorn Systems, commenting on the awarded tender.
