Burlington, ON, CA, June 23, 2020

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division announced today that Burlington Hydro, an energy services company in Ontario, Canada, has successfully deployed Hexagon’s advanced utility geographic information system (GIS) solutions. The suite of network management tools enables Burlington Hydro to maintain a definitive source of location-based information for managing its networks and connectivity and sharing vital GIS data across the organization.

Burlington Hydro provides electricity to nearly 70,000 residential and commercial customers through a network of 32 substations and 1,600 kilometres of distribution lines. With Hexagon’s solutions, the utility can better maintain its network records, and trust that they are accurate, consistent and current. By applying the solution’s intelligent, rules-driven tools, Burlington Hydro can streamline and enhance processes for designing and documenting its entire network.

“Hexagon has a long history of supporting utility companies across Canada, giving Burlington Hydro the confidence to know we were the right partner for solving its network management needs,” said Dave Kenney, vice president of implementation services at Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division. “Our Intergraph G/Technology®, Intergraph NetWorks® and Intergraph® G/Connect network solutions help Burlington Hydro preserve and enrich its existing network data, while adding improved operability and decision-making functionality.”

“At Burlington Hydro, we strive for excellence and continuous improvements in all aspects of our business, and that is why we chose to partner with Hexagon for this essential upgrade,” said Reid Cannata, Burlington Hydro GIS supervisor. “The project had a very tight timeline of four months from contract to deployment, and Hexagon delivered. Our team has been very pleased with the new GIS system’s capabilities and performance and our increased productivity.”
