Intergraph and its partners, Irish Mapping & GIS Solutions Limited and Rolta UK Limited, were awarded a contract to supply a geographic information system to ESB Networks Ltd. to support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of its electrical distribution network. After a competitive procurement process, Intergraph was selected to enable and automate the generation of all of ESB Networks' necessary reports, plots, network diagrams and interfaces with SAP and other business and operational management systems. Using Intergraph's G/Technology and GeoMedia solutions, Intergraph will deliver a tier-one business critical system with full two-way integration with SAP work, asset and customer management modules and Oracle Utilities Outage Management.
"We fully expect our new system implemented by Intergraph to serve as a single enterprise solution for the full life cycle management of our network assets while improving workflow efficiencies, including extended workflows with other business critical systems," says John Gallagher, ESB Networks IT Manager.
This significant contract award follows another recent Intergraph award by the Greater Dublin Region Water and Drainage Steering Groups, a consortium of city and county councils, and further confirms Intergraph as a dominant supplier to the Irish utilities market sector.
