Anticipates Reduced Design Costs and Increased Ability to Meet Growing Demand for Substation Projects through Design Automation and Standards Enforcement

Exton, Pa., U.S.A. – Nov. 29, 2012 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced that ElectraNet Pty Limited, the principal electricity transmission network service provider in South Australia, has chosen Bentley Substation to reduce high-voltage electric substation design costs and enable existing design resources to meet an ever-increasing volume of capital projects. Bentley Substation, the only integrated software product for intelligent electrical and physical substation design, empowers project teams to design substations 30 percent faster, increasing productivity, while also reducing errors and minimizing rework. In addition, it enables organizations such as ElectraNet to automate reporting processes and enforce their design standards, further increasing the accuracy of their design work.
 
With its more than 5,600 circuit kilometers of transmission line and 87 substations and switchyards, ElectraNet’s transmission network delivers efficient and reliable high-voltage electricity from power generators to South Australia’s electricity distributor and large industrial users. Switching from manual CAD design to intelligent substation design enables ElectraNet to significantly reduce detailed design time and create more accurate project estimates from precise bills of material.
 
Hamish McCarter, ElectraNet’s Senior Manager Engineering Services, said, “With Bentley Substation our current design resources, both internal and external, will be better able to accommodate a growing workload. In addition, the added structure and reporting will ensure our design partners are better equipped to adhere to our standards, which will provide long-term benefits in the form of reduced maintenance challenges.”
 
Richard Zambuni, Bentley Global Marketing Director, Geospatial and Utilities, said, “We are extremely pleased that ElectraNet has joined the many owner-operators and utilities around the globe that are using Bentley Substation to complete both brownfield and greenfield projects faster, more cost-effectively, and with higher quality. We look forward to increasingly serving the company’s needs through our wider set of products for substation design, further accelerating the delivery of intelligent, better-performing substation infrastructure.”
