Hydro One Grabs Space-Time SI for Grid Reliability


Space-Time Insight today announced that Hydro One Networks has deployed Space-Time Insight's geospatial and visual analytics software to improve the health and reliability of their transmission and distribution assets.

The situational intelligence system is being implemented in conjunction with Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, which is providing technology consulting and systems integration services to Hydro One.

Space-Time Insight's software makes it easier for asset managers and executives to determine the transmission and distribution assets at greatest risk of failure, with the goals of improving service reliability, lowering costs and reducing exposure to liability and safety issues. Specifically, it aims to help operators and field crews collaborate on scheduled maintenance, refurbishment planning, and strategic asset lifecycle decisions that improve grid reliability.

Hydro One Networks is involved in the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of transmission and distribution networks in Ontario. Hydro One Networks' transmission system carries electricity from generating stations to local distribution companies and large industrial customers through a high-voltage network of transformer stations, transmission towers and wires. The company owns 97% of the transmission network in Ontario and operates 26 interconnections with neighboring provinces and states.

Wayne Smith, SVP, Planning and Operating of Hydro One Networks noted, "The situational intelligence system gives our asset managers unique insights into our asset portfolio, helps them plan more effectively, and ensures greater reliability of the service we deliver to our customers."

The Space-Time Insight solution integrates data and functionality from many different systems including SAP ECC, GIS, and real-time data to provide a complete view of Hydro One's assets. The intelligence generated from measuring the risk factors associated with field assets is designed to result in improved grid reliability, capacity, productivity, and overall organizational efficiency. For example, the system could reduce the number of field service trips through proactive assessment of an asset's condition.

"Hydro One's vision for the health and administration of the smart grid across their organization further demonstrates the role and importance of situational intelligence in the management of critical infrastructure," said Steve Ehrlich, SVP, Marketing of Space-Time Insight.
