Huntsville, US: Yunnan Power Grid Corporation (YNPG) – a subsidiary of China Southern Power Grid, has selected Intergraph geospatial solutions to manage its power transmission and distribution supply across the entire Yunnan province in China. The Intergraph technology will be used to build an integrated electricity transmission and distribution model that complies with the Common Information Model (CIM) standard, the first of its kind in China, said the company.
YNPG required a technology partner to ensure the efficiency, reliability and security of its power transmission and distribution management system. YNPG chose Intergraph for its proven geospatial technology and innovative solutions and selected Intergraph’s G/Technology and GeoMedia suite of solutions.
“It was a clear choice to select Intergraph as our technology partner as YNPG moves forward to be the first utility in China to build an integrated electricity transmission and distribution model that is compliant with the CIM standard,” said Feng Yu Xi, Chief Technical Officer of Kunming Power Information Technical Company, a YNPG subsidiary.
Tony DiMarco, Executive Director of Global Utilities & Communications for Intergraph, said, “The Intergraph solution will bring key data together into an integrated, spatially-enabled view, enabling YNPG to be more effective in managing its power transmission and distribution supply with increased productivity.”
