The Xiandong Jingzhou 220 kilovolt substation in China’s Hubei province is a new-generation intelligent substation demonstration project
by State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC). PowerChina Hubei Electric Engineering Corporation designed the substation in 3D, which
significantly improved efficiency and quality, and created a 3D information model for construction simulation and digital handover to SGCC.
The Bentley platform provided solutions to numerous technical challenges. It allowed project data to be transmitted across the full
engineering lifecycle, which improved design, construction, and operation management. Accomplished in nearly half the time, the design
reduced land area by 40 percent, saving more than CNY 2.15 million in land investment. Products included Bentley Substation, AECOsim
Building Designer, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management, GEOPAK, Project Wise, eB Information Manager, and Bentley Navigator.

Located in the eastern Netherlands’ Twente region, the city of Almelo, Overijssel, has 72,000 residents. The Municipality is taking a
federated approach to managing subsurface utilities with construction of a water boulevard, where myriad utilities align in one channel. The
city center project site and multiple stakeholders – representing water, sewer, cable, telephone, and electricity – posed major challenges.
Bentley solutions included Bentley Map, Bentley Descartes, InRoads Suite, Bentley PowerCivil for Benelux, and Bentley Subsurface Utility
Engineering. Interoperability of these tools facilitated collaboration among project participants. The 3D model supported design of utilities
realignment, culvert reconstruction, and ground-level reconstruction. A 4D visualization supported multi-stakeholder project coordination.
The Municipality expects a 10 percent reduction in costs and risk as a result of using the models for information exchange and
