Intergraph, a provider of geographic information system (GIS) technology for utilities, and its partners - Irish Mapping & GIS Solutions Ltd. and Rolta UK Ltd. - have been awarded a contract to supply a GIS to Irish distributed grid operator ESB Networks Ltd.

According to the companies, the GIS will support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of ESB's electrical distribution network. 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 its G/Technology and GeoMedia solutions, Intergraph will deliver a tier-one 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 lifecycle management of our network assets while improving workflow efficiencies, including extended workflows with other business critical systems," says John Gallagher, ESB Networks IT manager.
