Implementation of geographic information solutions for Lyonnaise des Eaux Casablanca
Le projet concerne le déploiement d’une solution d’informatique et d’information géographique de très grande envergure avec un niveau d’exigence à la hauteur des enjeux des missions confiées à la LYDEC.
En effet, depuis le 1er août 1997, la LYDEC, filiale de Suez, assure pour une durée de 30 ans la gestion déléguée de la distribution d’électricité, d’eau potable et du service d’assainissement pour plus de 4 millions d’habitants de la Région du Grand Casablanca.
LYDEC compte 3 250 employés avec un Chiffre d'Affaires de 375 millions d’euros. En 2007, LYDEC a choisi Altereo pour la fourniture et le déploiement d...
The project concerns the deployment of a very large-scale IT and geographical information solution with a level of requirements that matches the mission challenges entrusted to LYDEC.
Since 1 August 1997, LYDEC, a subsidiary of Suez, has been providing delegated management of electricity, drinking water and sanitation services for more than 4 million inhabitants of the Greater Casablanca Region for a period of 30 years.
 
LYDEC has 3250 employees with a turnover of 375 million euros. In 2007, LYDEC chose Altereo to supply and deploy GIS applications for Water, Sanitation, Electricity and Public Lighting in fullweb mode.

It is the largest business GIS on the African continent with 600 users and a seamless migration from the legacy system.
In one click, discover the energy balance of your region!
Cela ne fait plus débat. Pour répondre à l’enjeu du réchauffement climatique, nous devons décarboner nos villes, nos quartiers, nos projets, notre mobilité.C’est ainsi que nous réduirons nos émissions de CO2 et préparerons un avenir soutenable.
 
Conscient que cette grille de lecture est parfois difficile à obtenir, EDF a conçu un module en ligne qui permet de générer un premier bilan énergétique d’un territoire et d’identifier son potentiel « bas carbone ».
 
En un clic, les décideurs locaux peuvent découvrir le bilan énergétique de leur territoire, connaître...
It’s no longer a matter of debate. To meet the challenge of global warming, we need to decarbonise our cities, our neighbourhoods, our projects and our mobility, which is how we will reduce our CO2 emissions and prepare for a sustainable future.
 
Aware that this reading grid is sometimes difficult to obtain, EDF has designed an online module that generates an initial energy balance for a region and identifies its "low carbon" potential.
 
In just one click, local decision-makers can find out the energy balance for their area, check out its CO2 emissions - whether they result from mobility or the presence of industries, for example - and also discover the potential for Renewable Energy: depending on the region, the solutions to be considered are not always the same so it’s important to understand and know a region in order to make best use of it.
 
The "online energy balance" is a tool that can improve knowledge and strengthen the expertise of communities. It allows us to observe uses, potentially prioritise projects, optimise them, etc.
 
The energy issue is a lever for "acting locally" and "responding globally" to the challenge of global warming: it must therefore be central to the ambition of elected representatives and the administration within their region.
 
By logging on to https://www.edf.fr/collectivites and using their post code, everyone can now discover the priority action levers to be implemented.
 
This tool is aimed at all local decision-makers, whether they administer a large city, a medium-sized town or a rural town.
Implementation of a GIS to modernise drinking water management in Nha Trang city
Nha Trang, ville balnéaire extrêmement touristique, est la capitale de la province de Khanh Hoa. Ce projet a lieu dans le cadre du mémorandum, signé en juin 2007 par les gouvernements français et vietnamien, pour promouvoir la coopération technique et technologique entre les deux pays.
 
Le projet doit conduire à l’amélioration de la performance du service d’eau potable, à la fois dans l’exploitation quotidienne et dans la gestion à long terme de ses réseaux, à travers la création d'une cellule opérationnelle pour l'exploitation du Système d'Information Géographique (SIG).
 
Le...
Nha Trang, an extremely touristy seaside town, is the capital of the province of Khanh Hoa. This project is organised as part of the memorandum signed in June 2007 by the French and Vietnamese governments to promote technical and technological cooperation between the two countries.
 
The project should lead to an improvement in the performance of the drinking water service, both in its daily operation and in the long-term management of its networks, through the creation of an operational unit for managing the Geographic Information System (GIS).
 
The deployment of GIS will lead to economic gains in the management of the service, in particular through:
· Improved service operation, thanks to a precise knowledge of the infrastructures;
· Better control of leaks and network performance;
· Optimised network extension or renewal investments, thanks to the development of an asset strategy.
 
This project thus helps modernise the management of services and moves the governance towards financial independence, service performance and responsibility towards users, as called for by the Vietnamese government in its two decrees of 2007.
This mission consisted of a detailed study which helped establish an optimised network renewal programme. The study was based on the application, for the first time on the Asian Continent, of the exclusive "SIROCO" methodology and expert system, a product of Altereo's innovation.
Implementation of professional GIS for the Phnom Penh water authority
Dans le cadre du projet « Greater Phnom Penh Water Supply System » (« PPWSA »), Phnom Penh a souhaité restructurer et augmenter la performance de son service d’eau. En pleine mutation, elle voit son nombre d'abonnés augmenter de 15 à 20 000 par an. Il lui est donc indispensable de se doter d’un SIG capable, notamment, de structurer sa connaissance patrimoniale.
Lors de la fourniture de la solution de Système d’Information Géographique (SIG) « KIS », Altereo informatique devait veiller à :
· La définition d'un modèle de données SIG ainsi que la migration des données descriptives existantes
· La...
As part of the "Greater Phnom Penh Water Supply System" ("PPWSA") project, Phnom Penh wished to restructure and increase the performance of its water service. In the midst of a major transformation, the number of subscribers is increasing by 15 000 to 20 000 a year. It is therefore essential to have a GIS capable, in particular, of structuring its asset knowledge.
 
When supplying the Geographic Information System (GIS) solution "KIS", Altereo Informatique had to ensure:
· The definition of a GIS data model and the migration of existing descriptive data
· Reorganisation/creation of the processes revolving around the GIS in the different departments of the company
· The creation and provision of a mobile app, background maps, GPS equipment and assistance in mapping the location of the 285 000 clients and the network facilities
· Training of users, administrators and contributors.
 
KIS, enriched with its AEP module, now provides PPWSA with a "drinking water" business toolbox, ranging from the operation of the network topology (routes, simulation of valve closures, etc) to the management of business processes (management of complaints and interventions, leak management, etc) or an interface for representing mapping data from the monitoring of sub-metering.
 
Its Administration module offers a simple, ergonomic tool for modelling and integrating data, managing users and setting up applications, forms and workflow. It also allows the system to evolve to meet new needs or to exchange information with third-party applications in a variety of formats.
Living regions: 9 keys to the ecological emergency
Face aux enjeux du dérèglement climatique, l’échelle locale apparaît comme l’échelle idéale pour innover, expérimenter et mettre en œuvre de nouvelles manières de vivre.
 
Les élus locaux ont ainsi un rôle essentiel à jouer dans la mise en œuvre de mesures à la hauteur pour protéger les milieux naturels, la biodiversité, et les populations humaines qui en dépendent.
 
Avec ce guide, le WWF-France s’engage dans l’accompagnement des transitions locales, en proposant un programme pour des territoires « vivants et désirables ».
 
Constitué de 9 clés...
Faced with the challenges of climate change, the local scale appears to be the ideal level for innovating, experimenting and implementing new ways of living.
 
Local elected officials thus have an essential role to play in implementing appropriate measures to protect natural environments, biodiversity and the human populations that depend on them.
 
With this guide, WWF-France is committed to supporting local transitions by proposing a programme for "living and desirable" regions.
 
Consisting of 9 keys, it establishes recommendations associated with action levers (strategic planning, regulation, public procurement or financial and technical support); to enable local authorities to reinvent towns and regions around vital local functions: live, eat, move, entertain, inform, produce and consume.
 
Managing the food supply during the pandemic: initiatives in French cities
La crise sanitaire a durement touché le monde entier, notamment la France, et a conduit à adapter les modes de consommation, de production et d’approvisionnement pour faire face à cette situation inédite. Fermeture des marchés, des commerces, des restaurants et des cantines, pénurie de main d’œuvre dans la production agricole… Les acteurs du secteur ont dû s’adapter à un contexte évolutif pour garantir la sécurité alimentaire du pays.
 
Malgré toutes ces difficultés, le système alimentaire français a tenu. 
Comment garantir la sécurité et la qualité de l’approvisionnement alimentaire...
 
Management of the food sector has been a crucial issue during Covid-19 crisis. A basic need for everybody, obtaining food is an essential activity that can-not be interrupted or endangered. But how can the safety and quality of the food supply be guaranteed for everyone during a health crisis? What mechanisms have been put in place in French cities in response to this unprecedented emergency? What lessons can be learned from the pandemic? Should we expect more long-term changes in the way that we produce, consume and recycle? To what extent can local French initiatives be useful in terms of a transition of the food system on a more global scale?
 
France Urbaine, in partnership with the RESOLIS and Terres en Villes associations, presents an analysis in this publication of the multiple roles played by cities during these first weeks of lockdown.
Grand Ouarzazate, an oasis town for the 21st century
Le Grand Ouarzazate, situé sur le versant sud du Haut-Atlas et à la porte du désert et de l’Afrique subsaharienne, est riche d’une culture millénaire et de sites exceptionnels. L’activité de ce territoire a été positionnée dans les dernières décennies sur son potentiel touristique et sur l’accueil de l’industrie cinématographique. Le complexe solaire «Noor Ouarzazate», ouvre un volet nouveau de son attractivité.
 
Les équipes internationales réunies par les Ateliers de Cergy ont été appelées en 2018 à effectuer un travail collectif sur un cap formulé pour le Grand Ouarzazate par le Gouverneur de la Province...
Grand Ouarzazate, located on the southern slope of the High Atlas at the gateway to the desert and sub-Saharan Africa, is rich in its thousand-year-old culture and exceptional sites. The activity of this region has been positioned in recent decades on its tourist potential and hosting the cinematographic industry. The "Noor Ouarzazate" solar complex opens up a new aspect of its attractiveness.
 
The international teams brought together by the Ateliers de Cergy were called upon in 2018 to work collectively on a course formulated for the Grand Ouarzazate by the Governor of the Province and the Presidents of the communes:
 
- To make it, based around agriculture and water, the foundations of the oasis, an attractive region of world level based on several aspects; cinema, the thermo-solar industry and tourism.
- To make it a model ecological town, a showcase for oasis locations.
 
The spatialised proposals resulting from this work focused on the following themes:
 
- To improve the quality of urban life by creating tree-lined public spaces, new housing models, adapted to the climate and current lifestyles, and to strengthen social life in participatory places in the different neighbourhoods.
- To rebalance the banks of the central wadi by reorganising mobility and reconsidering the programme for a vast "urban pole" to adapt it to current economic realities and to accommodate new facilities, particularly universities.
- To improve water efficiency by ensuring the sharing of water between domestic, agricultural and industrial needs and move towards food self-sufficiency by extending the green belt and reinvestment of the major bed of the Wadi.
- To restore the earth's dignity as a building material: as the basic material of vernacular architecture, it is - despite its insulating properties - being abandoned in favour of cinder block. Proposals have been made to restore the esteem for this ecological material and reactivate the industry and know-how through contemporary architecture, in line with current lifestyles.
