Taesa (Transmissora Aliança de Energia Elétrica SA), one of the largest private electricity transmission groups in Brazil, uses the Collaborative to manage the construction of around 600 km of transmission lines and three substations, located between the states of Minas Gerais Gerais and Bahia.
The cloud collaboration tool is provided by Construtivo, an information technology company specialized in the engineering and construction sector.
According to Amanda Guimarães, Janaúba's technical documentation manager, the need to have a collaboration tool in the cloud arose with greenfield ventures (when funders allocate resources to build the necessary structure to start an operation).
“Until then, we operated with operation and maintenance. From the projects under construction, we needed software that would meet the demand for documentation procedures and the Collaborative came to meet these objectives ”, he explains.
In February, Taesa completed the long-term fundraising for the subsidiary Janaúba, through the issuance of simple and single series debentures. In total, R $ 224 million was raised.
The construction project for the electric energy project, which begins next month and has a deadline for energization stipulated by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) until February 2022, should handle around 100 thousand files, which will be processed by the Collaborative platform.
"The tool has become paramount for our business, as there is no way to manage engineering projects without the real-time support provided by the Collaborative, the greatest benefit of which is to give visibility to the progress of the project and not let the work delay", he adds. Guimarães.
When ready, the Janaúba project will operate in the transmission of electricity from 18 municipalities between southern Bahia and northern Minas Gerais.
“In addition to contributing to the expansion of Taesa's business, the Collaborative will provide security, uniqueness and visibility to the enterprise, which will directly impact the new economic development cycle in the regions, promoting income and jobs, as well as corroborating the environment”, concludes Marcus Granadeiro, CEO of Construtivo.
Construtivo was founded in 1999 as a joint venture of Grupo Santander. Headquartered in São Paulo and a branch in Porto Alegre, the company serves more than 25 thousand users in 100 customers, such as CSN, CPFL, CEEE, Makro, Rumo and Raízen.
