Colombian multi-utility firm selects Bentley as its sole software provider

Bentley Systems, Incorporated recently announced that Empresas Publicas de Medellin E.S.P. (EEPPM), one of Colombia’s largest multi-utility company, has selected Bentley as its sole software provider for water distribution modeling solutions. Headquartered in Medellin, Colombia, EEPPM will use Bentley’s WaterGEMS to support a ten-year master plan to reduce water loss and improve the reliability of its water supply system. Serving more than 3 million people across ten different cities in the Aburra Valley, the system consists of more than 3,200 kilometers of pipe, 95 tanks, and 29 pump stations. In order to quickly and accurately prioritize tasks for this major rehabilitation project, EEPPM needed to leverage its corporate GIS and commercial information system within its water network model. Accomplishing this would require a water distribution modeling solution capable of interoperating with all of its existing software.
