Increase operational efficiency on a network of 1.5 million poles & 120k miles

Problem

An Australian Utility was looking for a more efficient way to conduct design, asset inspections, pole replacements and vegetation management. 

Solution

By using PLP Analytics, the Utility optimized their existing distribution network design and enabled them to model, view and analyse their grid with precision.

Outcome

  • Saved over 3000 site visits in the first year
  • Increased design & engineering productivity, 3 - 5x improvement
  • Improved overall productivity during COVID-19, staff could work remotely access detailed network information without field visits
  • Same model was also used during wildfires to rapidly rebuild the network, reducing SAIDI & improving reliability.
