Wipro Helps Wales and West Utilities Implement an Integrated Work and Asset Management System in Record Time

Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Wipro Technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) announced the successful implementation of an Integrated Work and Asset Management system for Wales and West Utilities (WWU). WWU is responsible for the transportation of gas throughout Wales and the South West of England via 34,000 Km of pipelines, covering around 7.4 million inhabitants.

Graham Edwards, Chief Executive of Wales and West Utilities Ltd. said "This is a major milestone for WWU and a great credit to all involved in such a major transition. The achievement is a major stride forward, after all we have replaced all of the mission critical systems required to run a gas distribution business in a relatively short span of time. IT is seen as a key enabler for our business and we now have a sound platform upon which to build going forward".

Tamal Das Gupta, Senior Vice President, Energy & Utilities, Wipro Technologies said, "This record implementation has been made possible thanks to Wipro's deep domain expertise in the Energy and Utilities space and our process and delivery leadership in handling large complex system integration, system delivery and testing services for global utility organizations ".

Following the sale in June 2005 of four of the regional gas networks in the UK, WWU had a service agreement with National Grid that granted them access to the existing National Grid systems for a period of 18 months. It was critical to the WWU business that it had its own Work and Asset Management systems operating by 30 November 2006. WWU appointed Wipro Technologies as the system integrator with responsibility to implement its new front office work and asset management system, to ensure that it was built to time and budget, and that the asset operator could continue to operate the gas distribution network without interruption.

Wipro had to replace around 57 disparate existing systems and transfer close to 60 GB of data pertaining to 13 million assets and work orders (5-7 years history), along with other details from a number of operational applications and data warehouses.

Phil Pike, Head of IT, WWU delighted by this implementation said "It is very uncommon to deliver such a large and complex programme of IT work to time and budget, and Wipro have played a significant part in helping us achieve our objective. The 'can do' positive attitude demonstrated by everyone in the team helped overcome many challenges along the way."

The complete solution was delivered within the very tight timetable, and this allowed WWU to cut-over successfully from the National Grid's front office systems. Wipro was the key service provider to WWU in delivering large system integration, vendor management, solution delivery, training and testing services.

About WWU:

WWU is the owner of the gas distribution system in the Wales and South West of England, responsible for transporting gas to the gas meters of homes and businesses from the Northern Welsh border to Cornwall.

With around 34,000km of gas mains, WWU covers 41,000 sq. km (one-sixth of the UK) serving a catchment area with a population of 7.4 million through its 2.4 million supply points.

WWU has its headquarters at Newport in South Wales, and employs 1200 people across Wales and South West of England. Although WWU does not sell gas, it ensures that it is piped in a safe and efficient way. The company is also responsible for dealing with gas escapes, laying new gas pipes and replacing and moving pipes and meters. WWU replaces 360 km of old metallic mains every year.

WWU also offers a complete Connections Service from Design and Quotation through to Work Scheduling and Job Completion for domestic and industrial customers, and introduces around 24,000 new customers to its network each year.
