Share Article

Cyco Software, a leading provider of engineering data management (EDM) solutions, and DataCore Technology, a systems integrator specializing in the implementation of EDM solutions, announced that Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA), a rural electric cooperative in Alaska, has selected DataCore to implement Cyco's AutoManager Meridian with the Cyco Asset Management Module to manage their engineering data and design documentation.

This year, GVEA celebrates 60 years of service to nearly 90,000 Interior residents in the Fairbanks, Delta, Nenana, Healy and Cantwell areas to over 41,160 service locations. In temperatures that often reach 50 degrees below zero, GVEA operates and maintains 2,826 miles of transmission and distribution lines and 35 substations and their system is interconnected with Fort Wainwright, Eielson AFB, Fort Greely, the University of Alaska-Fairbanks and all electric utilities in the Alaska Railbelt which extends from Homer, Alaska to Fairbanks. "We believe that the implementation of Cyco AutoManager Meridian will allow us to reduce time spent searching for documentation, increase operational efficiency, and help reduce operating costs, which will allow us to better stabilize costs for the residents we serve," says Tim DeVries, Manager of Engineering Services at GVEA

GVEA has also implemented the Cyco Asset Management Module, which helps to track the relationships between documents and assets, and dramatically enhances the management of "as built" information. By maintaining consistency between documentation and the actual situation in the field, the module facilitates vital business processes to ensure compliance and productivity.

GVEA adds to DataCore Technology’s extensive list of customers in the electric utilities industry, including Chugach Electric Association and Homer Electric Association, also located in Alaska. Entergy Nuclear, Seattle City Light, Idaho Power, and New York Power Authority are among some of the other electric utilities throughout the United States that also benefit from DataCore’s expertise as a leading implementer of Cyco Software’s EDM solutions. Tim DeVries adds that "After careful evaluation, DataCore Technology’s experience and impressive list of customers in the public utility industry reassured us that they were the best choice for our EDM needs."
