Envista Enterprise ROW Coordination Platform Selected by Northeast Utilities to Help Coordinate Natural Gas Expansion in Connecticut

Cloud-Based Solution Maximizes Efficiency in Managing Construction Details and Avoiding Conflicts to Minimize Public Disruption During Expansion

BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) -  Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of enterprise right-of-way (ROW) coordination solutions in the cloud, today announced that Northeast Utilities (NYSE: NU), a Fortune 500 and Standard & Poor's 500 energy company that operates New England's largest energy delivery system, has signed a one-year agreement to pilot the Envista Enterprise ROW Coordination Platform in its Yankee Gas residential service area. Yankee Gas, which operates more than 3,100 miles of natural gas pipeline in Connecticut, will use Envista's Utility Project Coordination and Citizen's View modules to streamline coordination and enhance communications for a statewide natural gas expansion.

Connecticut's Governor announced a comprehensive energy strategy in February 2013 calling for 250,000 households in the state to convert to natural gas over the next seven years. By leveraging Envista Utility Project Coordination, Yankee Gas can manage pipeline construction more efficiently and gain real-time status updates on details associated with the expansion. The utility will also have the ability to coordinate with municipalities to ensure adherence to street cut moratoriums, plan new gas projects around existing paving schedules and avoid construction conflicts to minimize public disruption. In addition, Envista Citizen's View will help Yankee Gas ensure consistent communication with the public by publishing selected project information on the web such as updates on construction status, detours and road closures. 

Mark Prestipino, Envista's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are delighted that Northeast Utilities has chosen Envista to help coordinate this vital natural gas expansion in Connecticut. By engaging multiple stakeholders from across the company and throughout the state, Yankee Gas will be able to automate its project coordination processes and improve communications through the anytime/anywhere access of Envista's cloud-based platform."
