For the Department of Energy’s Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), Centuria provided IT and program support for the marketing and delivery of reliable, cost-based hydroelectric power and related services within a 15-state region of the central and western U.S. WAPA is one of four power marketing administrations within the U.S. Department of Energy whose role is to market and transmit electricity from multi-use water projects. The transmission system carries electricity from 57 power plants operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the International Boundary and Water Commission. Together, these plants have an installed capacity of 10,395 megawatts.
The IT team supporting the National Weather Service (NWS) Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD) is responsible for the services enabling radar operation, data collection, analysis and application. The software applications they manage not only drive the employment of the radar, but also what data is collected and how it is used. This project supports nearly 200 Doppler weather radars that provide critical tornado and severe weather warning observations across the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Azores, and Korea. The information set includes weather and atmospheric conditions as well as data on other environmental factors such as the effects of man-made structures, bird and insect migration and pollen dispersion.
