- Integrated Lock Management for Waterways, Regensburg Water and Navigation Authority, Regensburg, Germany
Integrated Lock Management for Waterways, Regensburg Water and Navigation Authority, Regensburg, GermanyThe Authority contracted Fichtner IT Consulting to design and develop a lock management solution, including an electronic traffic log. The aim is to optimize waiting times at the locks and lock capacity utilization, and minimize overall boat travel time, for which purpose, among other things, an optimization algorithm and an interface to the automatic identification system (AIS) for ships are to be implemented.
Further, the software solution ´´lock management system´´ will assist the shift supervisor during his day-to-day work, which at present is largely done manually. In a first step, the software solution shall find application as a pilot system on the River Danube at Regensburg Control Center, covering locks at Bad Abbach, Regensburg, Geisling and Straubing, as well as for the local operating control stations at Kachlet and Jochenstein.

- BGI EnergyMapper: Incident Management System for 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, Berlin, Germany
BGI EnergyMapper: Incident Management System for 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, Berlin, GermanyFichtner IT Consulting is assigned to develop an incident management system - BGI EnergyMapper - for 50Hertz. The basis for the map display is the visualization of all network-relevant objects such as power line sections, electricity poles, wind turbines and transformer substations. A lightning database is integrated into the application to report incoming real-time information concerning lightning strikes. The system processes these data and displays the information graphically on a map. This provides the possibility to precisely locate a current lightning strike and the affected power line section.
In addition, an incident tracking module is developed to enable an animated display of the lightning strike‘s time flow in a “movie mode”. The visualization of the incident on the map together with the accurate allocation of the affected power line section enables the Transmission Control Center staff to instantly decide what to do and take appropriate actions based on the geographical facts. Thus, decisions are more reliable and the reaction time is minimized.
