CartoPac and EDM Implement Transmission Line Inspection Software Solution for Western Area Power Administration Print E-mail
Written by CartoPac and EDM   
Thursday, 07 May 2015

Fort Collins, Colorado, USA, 7 May 2015 – CartoPac International (www.cartopac.com) and EDM International (www.edmlink.com) announced the implementation of a new Transmission Line inspection solution based on the CartoPac Software platform for the Western Area Power Administration (Western) 

Western sought quotes for a Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Utilities Inspection Software Application that would provide a more efficient, integrated process and technology for improving Western’s transmission line inspection practices/process.  Teaming with EDM, CartoPac was awarded the contract to deploy the CartoPac software platform, configure the COTS solution to meet specific needs for Western, and provide training to field personnel for use of the new system.

With the COTS solution, Western now has a fully integrated application within their Esri GIS system, leveraging Windows OS field computers for field inspection of transmission lines. The CartoPac solution provides Western linemen with complete, streamlined access to data needed in the field. Using ruggedized laptop computers, field personnel have access to a complete suite of tools, including GIS maps and digital inspection forms to perform the required inspection tasks in the field. CartoPac provides a streamlined process for data transfer in and out of the system, and provides a standardized, centralized application across all of Western. In addition, the new solution provides tools for GIS, foremen, and other key stakeholders to review, validate, and report on critical information. 

Through the partnership established with EDM, CartoPac and EDM were able to provide a proven enterprise mobile technology, combined with expertise and experience in the electric transmission inspection and maintenance arena.  EDM provided configuration and training of the solution using experienced subject matter experts, trained in configuration of CartoPac technology, with knowledge and experience in transmission line inspection and maintenance. The combination of the existing COTS CartoPac platform and EDM’s experienced personnel has created an electric industry offering with a highly flexible software platform and industry proven workflows.
