Huntsville, AL, Nov. 10, 2005 — Intergraph announced Jilin Electric Power Co. Ltd has selected Intergraph to extend automated facilities management to all of China’s Jilin Province, serving more than 27 million customers.
Using G/Technology, Jilin Electric expects to streamline the management of its transmission and distribution workflows, enabling enterprise-wide access to data. Jilin Electric chose the open Intergraph system because it is scalable for future growth requirements. In addition, it automates operations management and reporting as well as inspections related to each level of the power distribution network and electric transmission stations.
“We have tried other ways to manage our information systems for the operations and maintenance of the electric network, but haven’t been able to get the results we need,” said Lin Tao, vice director, operations division, Jilin Electric. Tao went on to add the company expects to improve support for their distribution network.
Using Intergraph technology as the enabling core for a geospatial resource management (GRM) environment, Jilin Electric will store all data in a single, geospatially enabled database to facilitate information sharing between other enterprise applications. G/Technology will handle both textual and graphical data for integrated asset management. Implemented in conjunction with an Intergraph partner, Beijing Continent Computing Ltd., the system is expected to be deployed late this year.
