Modernizing and streamlining critical processes

Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) was working with a legacy database system with outdated information about electrical assets and inaccurate information on the location of illegal consumers. The database was also prone to electricity theft. They set out to index all consumers within their network, geo-reference all existing customers, and expand the billing database by regularizing all illegal consumers into the billing net. They leveraged FME to create the comprehensive, GIS-based Electrical Assets Mapping and Consumer Indexing Project.

FME ran QA/QC checks on multiple data sources, resulting in a street-based map. Data is transformed and loaded into a geospatial database that matches geospatial customer data with non-spatial counterparts in the billing database. With FME, EEDC ensures coordinate accuracy and can automatically generate 26-digit codes for about 5,000,000 building footprints.

EEDC can now quickly see the number of buildings they supply and the length of roads in their franchise area, which has helped in the development of the data-rich EEDC Base Map. They can also evaluate the coordinates and status of electrical assets in their network for seamless fault reporting, tracking, tracing, and in-depth analysis. FME was critical in developing their asset information system. 

With a more modern and streamlined process, EEDC has increased their customer base, grown their revenue, mitigated theft and leakages, and more efficiently markets their services.

“The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission ranked us No.1 and the benchmark for every electricity distribution company in Nigeria in Electrical Assets Mapping and Consumer Indexing because we used FME software.”
