Fugro’s Roames service wins prestigious industry honour

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) has announced Fugro Roames as winner of the 2015 Edison Award - the electric power industry's most prestigious honour that recognises distinguished leadership, innovation and progress in advancing the electric power industry.

Brisbane, Australia

Submissions from all over the world were first shortlisted by a committee of leading energy trade publication editors and then chosen by a judging panel of retired industry CEOs who were formerly EEI chairmen. Roames was nominated by Ergon Energy, the state of Queensland’s main power distribution company in Australia, who implemented this unique solution in 2013 to optimise their asset management processes in order to save cost and improve safety and customer service.

In selecting Fugro the panel was impressed with the excellent use of technology to build the Roames asset simulation system and its data analysis capabilities that have the potential to be of tremendous use to a variety of companies and industries.

EEI President Tom Kuhn said, "This year's Edison Award finalists demonstrate the outstanding innovations taking place in the electric power industry and the ground-breaking projects and technologies that will shape its future and benefit our customers."

The EEI (http://www.eei.org/) is the peak US industry body for Investor Owned Utilities who represent half of the United States’ 11 million kilometres of power line network.

Fugro monitors more than one million spans of network on a yearly cycle through Roames with the service available in Australia, Europe and the USA.
