Taesa manages work with Collaborative

A Taesa (Aliança de Energia Elétrica SA), one of the largest private electricity transmission groups in Brazil, uses Collaborative to manage fence construction 600 km of transmission lines and three substations, located between the states of Minas Gerais and Bahia.

The cloud collaboration tool is provided by Construtivo, information technology company specializing in the engineering and construction sector.

According to Amanda Guimarães, Janaúba technical documentation manager, the need for a collaboration tool in the cloud emerged with greenfield ventures (when funders allocate resources to build the structure needed to start an operation).

"Until then, we worked with operation and maintenance. From projects under construction, we needed software that could meet the demand for documentation procedures and the Collaborative met these objectives", Explain.

In February, Taesa concluded the raising of long-term funds for subsidiary Janaúba, through the issuance of simple debentures and in a single series. Total no, R$ were raised 224 millions.

The construction project of the electric energy project, which starts next month and has a period for energization stipulated by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) until February of 2022, should move about 100 thousand files, which will be handled by the Collaborative platform.

"The tool has become paramount for our business, because there is no way to manage engineering projects without the real-time support provided by Collaborative, whose greatest benefit is to give visibility to the progress of the project and not let the work be delayed", adds Guimaraes.

When ready, the Janaúba project will act in the transmission of electricity from 18 municipalities between the south of Bahia and the north of Minas Gerais.

"In addition to contributing to the expansion of Taesa's business, Collaborative will provide security, uniqueness and visibility to the enterprise, which will directly impact the new economic cycle of development in the regions, promoting income and jobs, as well as supporting the environment", finishes Marcus Grenadeiro, Constructive CEO.

Construtivo was founded in 1999 as a joint venture of the Santander Group. Headquartered in São Paulo and branch in Porto Alegre, the company serves more than 25 thousand users in 100 customers, as CSN, CPFL, CEEE, Macro, Direction and Roots.
