OCT 2015 : NIGELEC now have two tools dedicated to facilitate the management and the consistent development of the electricity grid:
- A Geographic Information System (GIS), used as georeferenced data storage (around 41 000 MV/LV poles + related network and equipment, and 120 000 consumers
- An application dedicated to network management: visualization of network mapping; operation monitoring (breakdowns, interventions and works); generation of periodic reports (load estimation, historical failures, delays of interventions, etc.).
Final versions of both tools were presented by IED during a final workshop, held in Niamey on 21st of October 2015, and gathering all department Directors of NIGELEC. Training sessions dedicated to the use/updating /administration of the tools were organized in July 2015.
