Austrian Power Grid AG (APG) is Austria’s transmission-system operator, ensuring that the country has the electrical power it needs 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. Operating a grid that spans roughly 3,500 kilometers in route length and 62 substations, the company provides a technically and economically optimized structure for the electricity-network, including secure operation and regular maintenance of all systems and equipment. Through careful and long-term grid planning and asset management, APG ensures that Austria’s electricity supply keeps pace with rapidly growing challenges, such as market-led load flows, rising supply of renewable energies, and demand for electricity.
“Austrian Power Grid has a standard procurement process that guarantees the highest quality of service to meet the demand of Austrian consumers for reliable, clean, and affordable energy. We issued a public tender and evaluated several vendors. Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management was by far the best tool for our enterprise-grade, project-planning and budgeting requirements,” said Wolfgang Huska, application supervisor for Primavera P6 at asset management, Austrian Power Grid AG.
Oracle partner proadvise GmbH has worked with Austrian Power Grid for the past two years, helping the company to run Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management 7.0 across various company divisions and upgrade to Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management 8.3. proadvise has substantial knowledge of APG’s business requirements as well as Oracle’s Primavera solutions and provides ongoing support and knowledge transfer to APG personnel.
