The energy company Koillis-Satakunnan Sähkö (KSAT) in Finland has chosen Tietoevry’s Network Information System (NIS) for the update of its electricity network’s planning and maintenance process. The new solution improves the efficiency of the company’s operations by digitising key processes, enabling reliable and real-time use of information in the company’s key functions.
The energy industry is in transition, and tomorrow’s solutions focus increasingly on using renewable energy sources to mitigate climate change. Because of this, the distribution network must also be able to flexibly manage demand response, as well as everything connected to the network, such as distributed energy resources, energy storage and electric cars. At the same time, grid companies must conform to the requirements of stricter regulation and make use of the opportunities afforded by digitalisation in the network’s planning, construction and maintenance. The most essential tool of a grid company’s asset management, the network information system, is at the heart of all of this.
“We wanted a long-term solution that meets the company’s current and future needs for network asset management. We found the best possible partner who is solution-oriented and committed to developing their process in the long term according to our needs,” says KSAT’s Network Manager Matti Takamäki.
“We’re glad about the new collaboration with Koillis-Satakunnan Sähkö. Our user-friendly solution has been developed for the customer’s needs and is based on the newest technology. We believe it offers the best tools for the digitalization of a grid company’s processes, improvement of their operational efficiency, and tackling the great transformation the industry is facing,” says Jyri Kivinen, Vice President, Head of Energy & Utilities, Tietoevry Industry.
Tietoevry’s NIS (Network Information System) is the most modern network information system on the market. It was developed in cooperation with Finnish distribution network operators and utilizes the state-of-the-art ArcGIS geographical information system. The key tasks of the system, in addition to the electricity network planning, construction and status management, include land use agreement management, work charts, and the electricity network’s analyses, reports and documentation. The use of real-time data enables the holistic and high-quality digitisation of processes without traditional manual work phases.
