UTILITIES

Increase your operational efficiency by becoming a data-driven utility that relies on qualitative data, an optimal environment, and efficient processes.

Become a real data-driven utility

In a modern utility, using data in an intelligent way is the key to efficient management of daily operations. A lot of efficiency can be gained through qualitative data, stored in an optimal environment, and supported by efficient processes. Managing your data in the correct environment not only reduces your operational costs, but also reduces your IT maintenance costs.

Becoming a data-driven utility all starts with correct and complete data. This often requires a one-time effort to bring the existing data up to standards, and a controlled process to keep it that way. In addition, a future-proof data environment, that supports both internal (field-editing, tracing, predictive analysis, etc.) and external (data-exchange, call before you dig, etc.) processes, is required

Avineon’s solid business expertise of over 29 years has led to a thorough understanding of the challenges utility companies are facing in an ever-changing environment, requiring optimized business and technology processes.

District
Heating

Our smart engineering support services help you define the most efficient solutions for your needs and support in best preparing the required execution works to optimize your operations and enable the development of smart, distributed district heating networks.

Electricity/
Public Lighting

Our solutions help electric utilities around the world optimize their business and technology processes. Our experience ranges from streetlight networks in small municipalities to multi-state transmission and distribution service areas spanning thousands of square kilometers.

Gas

We support gas distribution, transmission, and pipeline organizations, ranging from small regional providers to large conglomerates, in improving their operations throughout the gas delivery lifecycle by optimizing their information and asset management systems.

Water/
Wastewater

With aging infrastructure, growing regulations, and ongoing security concerns, water, wastewater, and storm water utilities face increasingly difficult challenges. We help customers face these challenges by providing total infrastructure solutions, ranging from relatively simple geospatial data enhancement projects to entire enterprise system implementations.

Our Approach

Our domestic consultants and project managers have the required domain knowledge and technical expertise to support you in your journey to become a data-driven utility. Both the project management and the development of tooling and processes are executed on-premises, in our offices, or from home. At all times, we work completely transparently, enabling our customers to learn during their journey while staying on top of the process. The big-volume work is executed in our facilities in India, which not only have an excessive experience in working for various utility companies, but also provide economies of scale.

This unique combination allows a fast and integrated execution of your big data improvement projects at an affordable price. The project management of such projects is, again, performed by domestic project managers that speak your language. This is our way of ensuring that not only your requirements are translated into correct working instructions, but also progress is monitored closely. It goes without saying that our Indian facilities are ISO registered for quality, information security, and health and safety.

Our Solutions for Utilities

Our services and solutions to optimize and modernize your business operations, and thus improve your operational efficiency, customer service, and regulatory compliance, focus on:

 

  • Digitizing/improving the quality of your entire network, including both the main network and house connections. For electric utilities, we also digitize/improve the quality of the internal world of medium and low voltage cabins.
  • Drafting services to execute your daily drafting work and keep your data up-to-date.
  • Implementing Esri Utility Network Management.
  • Supporting your operations by developing processes in FME.
  • Implementing algorithms for predictive maintenance and/or feature recognition.
  • Implementing our Call-Before-You-Dig solution, KLIPPER®, to automate your responses to digging requests in Belgium and The Netherlands.

Design

To best support and guide you in your journey towards becoming a real data-driven utility, a deep understanding of your current situation is required. The Avineon team therefore analyzes the impact of an ever-changing environment and technology on your systems, assets, and data, and, by doing so, helps you find the best solutions tailored to your needs.
