Smallworld and Globema position on the energy distribution market has expanded again! We are pleased to announce that Polenergia (Polish energy Distribution System Operator) chose our Smallworld EL.GIS system for network asset management.
Polenergia Dystrybucja Sp. z o.o. is an energy Distribution System Operator focused on supplying energy to industrial plants, shopping centers and housing developments in various regions of Poland. The company delivers energy to more than 8,000 customers throughout the country with an annual volume of 220 GWh. Polenergia also delivers gas with an annual volume of distributed natural gas of 40 million Nm3. (440 GWh).
The company operates two power plants – Nowa Sarzyna (total facility power: 116 MWe electrical and thermal 70 MWt) and Mercury (total facility power 8 MW). Polenergia also manages seven operating wind farms with a total capacity of 245.3 MW.
Among the company’s customers are: manufacturing companies (Whirlpool, Energa Group, Dalkia Poland S.A), households – a prestigious housing estate in Warsaw (Marina Mokotów, Banderii, Solar Skorosze, Lewandow, Wola Prestige) and shopping malls.
Globema will implement Smallworld EL.GIS system at Polenergia together with Smallworld Network Viewer. The project also covers EL.GIS network model adjustment to the company’s needs and creation of a topological network model, which will be build based on spatial and descriptive data obtained from Polenergia’s maps and other sources. In the final stage of the project specialized trainings for employees and cooperating companies will be conducted.
The goal of the project is to build a unified asset database and its spatial model. The objective is also to improve performance of key business processes by providing employees and cooperators with easy access to network asset information. In the end, EL.GIS will help optimize network maintenance operations and will increase general network efficiency. The project started in January 2017 and is expected to be completed within 6 months. Delivered solution will come with full technical support.
EL.GIS had been developed by Globema and used by DSOs long before Electric Office was introduced. The system is based on the GE Smallworld platform and supports key business processes of Distribution Network Operators & Distribution System Operators, such as planning and accomplishing new grid investments, re-developing, planning and maintaining operations, as well as managing outages and unexpected situations.
