Withy King helps software firm Intergraph plug into major electricity contract

October 23, 2012

Bath law firm Withy King has provided legal advice to specialist software firm Intergraph (UK) in its successful bid to secure a multi-million euro contract with Irish electricity distributor ESB Networks.

Under the contract, Swindon-based Intergraph will implement its leading-edge, map-based software to support the planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations of ESB’s network. Intergraph will collaborate with its Irish partner IMGS on the contract delivery. 

Jessica Bent, pictured, head of Withy King’s technology and media law team in Bath, worked closely with Intergraph on the contract.

Jessica said: “Contract negotiations were running to a short timescale and this posed particular challenges given the large scale of the project, and the range of elements that needed to be brought together. We were delighted to be involved in the successful contract award and to provide Intergraph with the specialist advice that it needed.”

Intergraph UK country manager Alun Pearsey praised Withy King’s “expertise, professionalism and dedication” in negotiating the large and complex contracts.

He added: “As the leading global provider of engineering and geospatial software, we are delighted to be able to serve ESB Networks with an enterprise solution that supports an end-to-end workflow for its network. Customers like ESB validate Intergraph’s strategy of enabling utility companies around the world to power smarter decisions through Intergraph technology.”

Intergraph, part of the giant Swedish Hexagon technology group, supplies businesses and governments in more than 60 countries with software that organises vast amounts of data and makes processes and infrastructures better, safer, and smarter in areas ranging from plants and ships and intelligent mapping.
