INNOVATION IN UTILITIES
Korea District Heating Engineering Co., LTD
CES Construction for SouthEast Logistics District of Seoul
The Seoul Housing Corporation is building the SouthEast Logistics District in
a four-block area of Seoul, South Korea. Planned for completion in 2010, the
$1.4 billion commercial and entertainment complex will attract 150,000 visitors
daily and house 10,000 residents. The infrastructure includes a low-emission,
energy-efficient cooling, heating, and power supply system designed by Korea
District Heating Engineering.
The company is using PlantSpace to create and model mechanical equipment
in a 3D environment and Project Wise to collaborate with the consortium of
civil and engineering firms involved in the project—the largest and most costly
project ever planned in Seoul. Bentley solutions enables the delivery of the right
information to the right people so dispersed project teams can work together to
meet the project schedule.
Digital Documentation–Data Capturing and Processing
Praha, Czech Republic
Pražská energetika Group (PRE) is the third largest electricity supplier in the
Czech Republic, serving more than 700,000 customers in the capital city of
Prague. PREdistribuce, a subsidiary focused on network development and
maintenance, recently initiated the digital documentation project to capture,
maintain, and utilize network documentation in the existing GIS.
The project team used Bentley PowerMap’s XFM technology to develop an
import/export utility for geospatial data. The new data processing system
significantly improved the quality of the captured data, as well as streamlined
data transfer from the field to the GIS. Within the first months of running the
new system, the data capture and update process was shortened by one third.
