May 29, 2015 - The georeferencing driving campaign, launched in October 2014 by IED and NIGELEC, has allowed to geolocate and characterize 44,000 MV and LV poles and 120,000 subscribers of Niamey distribution network. This data is now being exploited in two tools whose purpose is to facilitate the management and the consistent development of the electricity grid, and whose provisional versions were presented at NIGELEC on May 29th, 2015, in Niamey:
- A Geographic Information System (GIS), used as data storage
- An application dedicated to network management: visualization of network mapping; operation monitoring (breakdowns, interventions and works); generation of periodic reports (load estimation, new extensions, track record of failures, delays of interventions, etc.).
