Connecting the Bridge Between Traditional Engineering Packages and Technology Innovation in Utility EPC Projects
The utility industry for the most part has not had many changes for decades when it comes to engineering and information provided to build transmission and distribution lines. Most lines have a life cycle of 40-50 years with regular maintenance. The issues arise due to the lack of record-keeping and red line drawings to capture changes made during its life cycle.
To confront these challenges successfully, the industry must go through a change in mindset to use the latest technologies hardly used in our industry. The use of electronic IFC packages, along with cloud servers and tablets, can make a big difference to increase efficiency.
