Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions announced the successful rollout of its G/Electric-based geofacilities management system at Niagara Falls Hydro. Located in Ontario, Canada, the utility distributes electricity to approximately 33,000 customers throughout 80 square miles. G/Electric replaced Niagara Falls Hydro’s legacy GIS with an advanced geofacilities management system that maintains the company’s electric distribution network and provides integration among relevant corporate applications. The new system saves time by reducing redundant processes and enabling more efficient capture, design, and analysis of network asset information. G/Electric’s open architecture facilitates integration between geospatially related applications and supports an integrated Geospatial Resource Management environment, providing seamless workflows among applications that manage and maintain the company’s service-delivery network. G/Electric interfaces to Niagara Falls Hydro’s transformer database, as well as its Customer Information System, and allows office personnel to access and view current asset-related data. The next phase is under way and will integrate G/Electric with work estimating.
