Critical Infrastructure Attack

A forward-thinking railway company controls, besides its railway infrastructure, a network of power generation facilities and a series of energy efficiency products rallying to meet the energy efficiency practices of today’s world. The management decided to build solar plants and wind farms in order to reduce grid dependency and also to install VFD (variable frequency drives) designated for control of air compressors, oil compressors, and other motors, as well as drives used on the railway network. A SCADA (supervisory, control and data acquisition) application displays production and operation data of the solar and wind plants, together with operation data of the drives, motors, and switchyards along the railway network. The application is visualised and controlled from an O&M Master Room.
In short, there are three critical processes:
– railway switch yard automation;
– renewable generation solar and wind power plant;
– energy efficiency system using Variable Frequency Drive to control air pressure pumps.
