OpenUtilities Designer

Intelligent Design for Smarter Grids

Modernize your Utility Design and Modeling

A model centric approach to designing the world’s most reliable and sustainable power grids.

What is OpenUtilities Designer?

OpenUtilities Designer helps you intelligently design electrical systems and substations using current engineering codes and standards. Design and manage your electric, gas, water, wastewater, or district energy network with precise MicroStation-based layout features that integrate with common GIS systems. Quickly refine your designs and calculate cost at the same time.  The software allows you to use built-in workflow management capabilities to assign, track, manage work, and avoid delays on your project. Additionally, an embedded, full-featured utilities GIS maintains your network models and maps, enabling you to lower your software costs.

Licensing options

One-time purchase with support

Perpetual License with SELECT

A perpetual license of Bentley software is a one-time purchase, with a yearly maintenance subscription, called SELECT. This includes 24/7/365 technical support, learning resources, and the ability to exchange licenses for other software once a year. With SELECT, you will benefit from:

  • License pooling, so you can access your software from multiple computers
  • Access additional Bentley software with Term Licenses, which allow you to pay for what you use without the upfront cost of purchasing a perpetual license.

Annual renewal quotes are delivered directly to your inbox, and our experienced Renewal Representatives are available to answer your questions and guide you through any changes you’d like to make.
