Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (Teiaş) has closed a tender to renew its computer network with the aim of preventing any reoccurrence of the national blackout which occurred on March 30, Hürriyet Daily News reported.

Teiaş prepared a detailed technical tender document on 82 pages to prevent technical security breakage, the article said. Companies bid for the tender, which was opened by the State Supply Office (DMO), until Sept. 15. The new system must „cut any overloading from other countries, offering geographical protection,“ according to the documentation.

The new system is also expected to prevent any zero day attacks, which are used to define a time interval between the detection of a system weakness and the moment it is overcome. The desired cyber products will be located in the data center of Teiaş.

The outage, which hit almost all of Turkey’s 81 provinces, was triggered after shutdowns at two power plants in İzmir and Adana Çukurova.
