Project Goal

Duquesne Light used LiDAR and high-resolution imagery to build a digital twin of our as-built distribution system. This system will become the source system for multiple downstream systems including DLC's Advance Distribution Management System.

Business Problem Solved

Duquesne Light did not have a comprehensive record of the meter to transformer relationship within any of our IT systems. Establishing this within the GIS enables DLC to provide outstanding customer service, enhance situational awareness for our crews and increase reliability of our distribution system.

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 running Utility Network data management extension. ArcGIS Pro 2.9.5 with the ArcFM product suite to maintain the data.
