The solution is based on ArcGIS from Esri and ArcFM from Schneider and utilises many of the options and functionalities offered by these two products.
“GeoNIS is a master data system that gives grid companies a full overview of the entire power grid, thereby providing excellent opportunities to streamline both their dataflow and work processes,” says Ola Kjeldset, product owner for GeoNIS at Powel.
The solution can be easily integrated with other vital support systems, since it is based on standard development tools, databases and communication protocols.
Customers can develop the solution
"The data model, regulations, programming tools and functions we use are well documented and accessible. This allows customers to develop the solution and tailor it to their own needs,” says Kjeldset, who is proud of the fact that major customers like Lyse, BKK and Hafslund use GeoNIS in their day-to-day work as grid companies.
“Our customers are strongly focused on technology and are constantly on the lookout for new and better ways of working. They are therefore pleased that GeoNIS forms the basis of multiple integrations and field solutions, which result in an increasingly larger part of the organisation utilising digital tools”, he says.
