ESB Networks has deployed Intergraph GIS to support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of Ireland’s electricity distribution network.
The Intergraph GIS serves as a single enterprise solution for the full life-cycle management of ESB Networks’ network assets and improves workflow efficiencies and integrating seamlessly with other business-critical systems.
Previously, ESB Networks developed Intergraph FRAMME-based solution to meet the specific workflows the utility company’s business users required.
ESB Networks contracted Intergraph and its partners Irish Mapping & GIS Solution Limited (IMGS) and Rolta U.K. to upgrade to a new G/Technology-based system.
The solution features Intergraph’s G!NIUS electricity data model with additional customizations to meet the advanced business workflows ESB had configured in FRAMME.
ESB Networks can manage the network in three views simultaneously geographic, geo-schematic and ortho-schematic, through a single system using new Intergraph GIS solution.
Additionally, Utilities and communications companies can streamline work processes and make smarter decisions with Intergraph SG&I.
“The delivery of our new GIS system has been a huge team effort from all the parties involved and provides a highly integrated, modern solution which will serve the expanding and challenging requirements of the ESB Networks business over the coming years,” said John Gallagher, IT delivery manager, ESB Networks.
