This project was a part of the project “Energy Losses Reduction and Power Quality Improvement Program”, which consisted of 8 projects, each targeting a different area with the objective to reduce energy losses and to improve its quality.
This particular Project objective was to register and georeference the ELECTRA’s assets installed over the archipelago.
In this project, Gesto defined a strategy for the register of ELECTRA’s electricity assets in a geographical database also developed by Gesto – the Asset Manager Software. After the definition of the action plans, Gesto coordinated teams to register and characterize the required assets, such as lines, power plants and substations, among others, in the islands of Santiago, São Vicente and Sal.
The scope of works consisted on the registration and georeferencing of over 2.000km of power lines (aerial and subterranean), as well as the registration and georeferencing of over 187.000 network assets of 40 different types, from which we enhance:
HV – MV Substations
MV – LV Substations
Electrical Power Plants
MT control boards
Example of ELECTRA’s georeferencing process
Description of the activities carried out under this project:
Design and development of field record charts and fiches for the collection and recording of technical data for each of the 40 types of assets
Supervision and coordination of all fieldwork (register and georeferencing)
Analysis and validation of data and its incorporation in a georeferenced database
SUMMARY OF SERVICES
