The strategy is part of their commitment to continuously improve the quality and reliability of the power supply to its near 2.55 million customers.

Utilihive Solution

BRPL chose Utilihive as the platform for an analytics and data integration solution. A data lake was built to validate, unify and structure data across multiple sources, including energy data, machine data and enterprise information. In an initial pilot, real-time AMR data, feeder load analysis and consumption pattern analysis within the existing distribution network were included to support power quality and a seamless power supply. The utility’s data is now accessible in a Data Lake, enabling BRPL’s IT department to develop new applications and making it possible to work on innovative projects with the utility’s partner organizations.
