All Customer Stories

“Thanks to GEONIS we now have a modern GIS in operation, helping us to be better prepared for the challenges of the future”

– Frank Johannsen, Project Manager Stadtwerke Lübeck

The Challenge

Stadtwerke Lübeck GmbH (Luebeck Municipal Utility) is the most important energy provider in the Luebeck area in Northern Germany. Looking ahead to future challenges facing energy utilities, Luebeck decided to replace its old GIS operation with a modern system better equipped to plan for potential flood situations.

The Solution

Luebeck decided to migrate their old GIS to a new GEONIS system, with applications in the areas of electricity, gas, water and district heating. The data and system integration not only carried over older functionality from the previous system, but also laid the groundwork for fulfilling the utility’s future requirements. Some of these new features include the generation of overview plans, schema diagrams and flood simulations using digital elevation models, as well as comprehensive reports for the Federal Network Agency.

The Result

Thanks to the implementation of GEONIS it is now possible to execute installation and network planning in flood situations using 3D digital elevation models. The high level of data integration very efficiently supports the various processes between SAP, archive software, workforce management and GIS.

With GEONIS, Luebeck now has a GIS system better equipped to prepare for flood situations in the future.
