Utility Map Conversion and Integration
Huntsville, Alabama, United States
Huntsville Utilities is a publicly owned, not-for-profit utility serving over 161,000
customers in Huntsville, Ala. This project is a continuation of a previous project
that standardized processes and software across multiple departments using
Project Wise and Expert Designer. The next phase involves converting facility-and land-based maps to Bentley Electric, Bentley Gas, Bentley Water, and
Bentley Map formats.
Huntsville Utilities is combining facility information from three different
sources into a common mapping system. This significantly lowers upgrade and
maintenance costs, and helps the utility achieve sustainable growth, provide
low-cost utility services to customers, accelerate information sharing and
communications across project teams, and leverage its existing MicroStation
Iberdrola Igenieria y Construccion, S.A.U.
Substation Electrical design
Iberdrola Ignenieria y Construccion developed a new system for substation
design based on a collaborative work environment using 3D models and
computer-aided engineering concepts. The firm deployed Bentley products
that included Project Wise, promis•e, MicroStation, and TriForma.
This system introduces manufacturing information directly into designs to
provide coherence within the project team. It permits engineering teams at
locations other than the Iberdrola headquarters in Madrid, Spain, to participate
in substation design projects. Through multisite collaboration, the system
promotes creativity while ensuring adherence to engineering standards.
