The high voltage engineering department of Elia, Belgium’s electricity transmission system operator, adopted the ProjectWise platform as a proof-of-concept initiative to conform to corporate standards for lifecycle management. The scope of this EUR 250,000 project was to move 1.2 terabytes of information from the high voltage department’s fileserver to the ProjectWise environment.
ProjectWise’s delta file transfer technology allowed Elia to save time and prevent data loss by only transferring design changes rather than entire files when sending data. This technology facilitated the company’s 2013 Smart-Way-of-Working paradigm. Using custom workflows and specific access rights, the department can control document ownership at a previously unprecedented level. This enhanced efficiency saves an estimated USD 100,000 to USD 150,000 per year.
