Yunnan Power Grid Corp., a subsidiary of China Southern Power Grid and based in Yunnan province, China, has selected a geospatial system to manage its power transmission and distribution supply across the entire Yunnan province. The technology will be used to build an integrated electricity transmission and distribution model that complies with the Common Information Model (CIM) standard, the first of its kind in China.

YNPG required a technology partner to ensure the efficiency, reliability and security of its power transmission and distribution management system. YNPG selected Intergraph's G/Technology and GeoMedia suite of solutions.

Intergraph G/Technology is an open and scalable application platform designed to meet the geospatial resource management needs of utilities and communications companies. Intergraph's GeoMedia software provides direct, real-time access to enterprise geospatial data via simple Web clients in a dynamic and open geospatial application. YNPG will use Intergraph's geospatial solutions for its provincial-level transmission and distribution management system pilot project in Yunnan province, with support for its grid monitoring system.

Tony DiMarco, executive director of Global Utilities & Communications for Intergraph, said, "The Intergraph solution will bring key data together into an integrated, spatially-enabled view, enabling YNPG to be more effective in managing its power transmission and distribution supply with increased productivity."
