Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited
Spanning several regions of Cameroon where 55% of the population live in poverty, grid connectivity is limited, and the power supply is unreliable, this project will extend the country’s electricity network with two 225-kilovolt, single-circuit transmission lines and supporting substations. To overcome the challenges presented by swamps and dense forests prone to inclement weather, Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited turned to Bentley applications for transmission line layout, design, and analysis, and to establish a collaborative project management platform. The organization created a full digital twin of the project and used it for engineering and project management. In addition to saving time and costs, Kalpataru Power Transmission monitored the project’s material use and fuel consumption and minimized its carbon footprint. By eliminating diesel power generation in the region, the organization reduced carbon emissions equivalent to 450 megatons per month while promoting industrialization, economic growth, and improved quality of life.
