New Mexico, Texas Utilities Replacing GIS Systems with ArcFM

Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) and Texas New Mexico Power (TNMP) have selected Telvent Miner & Miner’s ArcFM solution for their Texas and New Mexico operations. The companies chose ArcFM and Designer along with ESRI’s ArcGIS solution to replace their existing GIS systems.

PNM serves more than 426,000 electric customers and more than 481,000 natural gas customers in about 100 communities within New Mexico and also sells electricity on the wholesale market. Texas-New Mexico Power, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, provides community-based electric service to 85 cities and more than 256,000 customers in New Mexico and Texas. PNM Resources, the parent company of PNM, completed an acquisition of TNMP in 2005.

The initial implementation will be for TNMP’s Texas operations and then the PNM New Mexico operations. The companies plan to integrate Designer and eventually have 30 designers and 23 viewers using the system. The focus of the new GIS system will be to streamline and enhance the two companies’ design, analysis, and operations processes.
