Street lighting and traffic lighting network in the city of Jyväskylä.




The city of Jyväskylä entered a new era in the asset management of the street lighting network.

The documentation of the street lighting network in the city of Jyväskylä was previously maintained by the Jyväskylän Energia Oy. The same software was used also to maintain the documents of the electricity distribution network.

In 2016, Jyväskylän Energia Oy announced that it will move to the new software for the maintenance of the distribution network at the beginning of 2018. The company could not guarantee the compatibility of the new software with the maintenance of the outdoor lighting network, so it was agreed that the maintenance of the documents of the outdoor lighting network would be entrusted to the city in the same context. The goal was that the new software should be able to control not only the outdoor lighting network, but also the traffic light network documents. The city of Jyväskylä competed for the acquisition and ended up with the KeyLight network information system. The procurement process and the deployment of the new software, as well as the conversion of existing network data to Keylight, succeeded well and stayed on schedule.

A prerequisite for the successful maintenance of an outdoor and traffic light network is that the subscriber knows what he owns and what is the condition of the property. These basics are the source of design and procurement data that should be managed by the network owner. It is now possible to comprehensively view assets from different perspectives and access to basic information for competitions, for example, is even easier and faster. Investment decisions and plans are also easier to make and justify based on factual information from KeyLight.

In addition, electrical safety issues must be taken into account. There must be no outdated network information in use by anyone. The correct information should be available only in one place and used in real-time on terrain. The KeyLight network information system fulfills all these subscriber goals well.

The experience of the year has shown that the program works reliably and has great potential for future asset management development. These identified development targets include, for example: warranty management and fixed debt calculation tools in the future. In addition, it has been seen as a positive thing that the company has actively involved users in development and the software is being developed together.
