ESB Networks Ltd., the licensed operator of the electricity distribution system in the Republic of Ireland, has implemented a geographic information system (GIS) built upon Intergraph G/Technology to support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of Ireland’s electricity distribution network.

An Intergraph customer for 20 years, ESB Networks had previously developed a highly bespoke Intergraph FRAMME-based solution to meet the specific workflows the utility company’s business users required. ESB Networks determined to upgrade to a new G/Technology-based system and contracted Intergraph and its partners, Irish Mapping & GIS Solution Limited (IMGS) and Rolta U.K. Limited in 2012 to deliver the project following a highly competitive procurement process.

The new Intergraph GIS serves as a single enterprise solution for the full life-cycle management of ESB Networks’ network assets, improving workflow efficiencies and integrating seamlessly with other business-critical systems. The new system went live this week following a three-year delivery project.

"The Intergraph team is honored to serve ESB Networks in its efforts to ensure reliable electricity distribution in the Republic of Ireland,” said Alun Pearsey, U.K. country manager, Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure (SG&I). "This major enterprise information system implementation is the culmination of a global collaboration and partnership between ESB Networks and its vendor team.”
