Al Reem will be like a city in the city.Abu Dhabi – Al Reem Island Development The Al Reem island at the shore of Abu Dhabi. for supervising all phases of the planning and execution of the 22 kV network by the developers until handing over of the installations to the end user ADDC. stations. The total area is approx.E. Because all installations and the infrastructure were planned simultaneously in advance. and consequently a high demand for electric power. The first challenge for LOAD is the integration and co-ordination of the project developers’ planning. In order to satisfy the requirements. Besides the Consultancy for the mentioned 400 kV Grid Station and 132 kV Substations. approx. The Al Reem development project comprises the planning. The developer Bunya LLC is responsible for the roads and other overall infrastructure. together with the demand from the “District Cooling Plants”. All Mega Projects aim at increasing the facilities for a growing population in Abu Dhabi City and it’s surroundings. The development is planned in several phases. In order to relieve the electric power network. Challenges Each of the regional project developers are responsible for one defined region. The second challenge is the construction across the region borders. together with the related 22 kV cable network are in various execution stages. located 500 m off the coastline of Abu Dhabi Island. efficient District Cooling Plants (DCP) are being introduced instead of the traditional wall A/C units. .

After completion of all works. design and construction of a large number of high rise buildings for residential accommodation and business. This fact. the supply coverage areas of individual primary substations have to overlap with the individual developers’ areas. in order to optimize the network in the whole island. The hot and humid climate of the region is reason for a very high demand for cooling in summer. Involvement of the Lahmeyer Office Abu Dhabi (LOAD) Lahmeyer Office in Abu Dhabi (LOAD) has a decisive function in the described development works. for which three main developers are responsible: Tamouh Investments. in which they plan and execute the 22 kV electric power network with distribution substations and power cables. results in a higher load density than on the main island of Abu Dhabi. or the self contained building central cooling plants. 9 km2.

Since the Consortium was not able to partly pre-finance the project throught their own financial resources. i. The contract includes consultancy services starting with an updated rehabilitation study. control cables. The design stage with design review and approval as well as workshop tests for the major equipment took about 15 months from October 2008 till December 2009. Such works for units 1 and 2 are included as options in the contract. Latest developments show that the IDB is also willing to finance the rest of the project. Finally. For instance. After finalization of the feasibility study the project was delayed due to financial restrictions and other more important projects like the construction of new power stations. Therefore the existing firefighting system was replaced and the cooling water pipes were improved in a separate short track project. It is worth mentioning that NEC is executing parts of the work under their own direction. shut-off and control valves and parts of the firefighting system. Due to the change from the existing conventional control systems to a modern computerized control system with monitor-based supervision and operation it became necessary also to change and modernize the control room completely.

In developing countries the use of Open Source Software was often limited to web hosting and web applications. The solution is mainly based on Open Source Software (OSS). 16 . The Republic of Senegal has obtained a donation from the European Development Fund (EDF) in the framework of the EU’s “Good Governance Project” for the development and implementation of a new digital cadastre system for the Direction du Cadastre of the Direction Générale des Impôts et des Domaines in Dakar. The client components can either be Open Source desktop applications such as gvSIG. certain requirements must be met. Much functionality has been directly implemented in the database on the server. Therefore the user is independent from particular GIS desktop software. versions and history of objects as well as other behaviour exclusively within the database. The aim was to maintain validation. Together with the PostGIS extension it proved to be well featured and flexible for the implementation of all requirements defined in the domain model. The data model used was an adapted version of the “Core Cadastral Domain Model” of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) which can easily be customised according to particular requirements of any country.and software. or a proprietary desktop GIS like ESRI ArcGIS which was the case for Senegal. Validated objects are treated differently and in order to validate an object. This increases fair competition and will result in better implementations. the database and the necessary applications such as import and export of data as well as regular updates and data maintenance. Today cadastre toolboxes based on OSS are increasingly developed and employed. which functions as a client to the server. The validation is carried out mainly through trigger functions which ensure integrity of the database during insert. development and implementation. This involves the use geographical information systems and databases to manage efficiently the spatial data for administrative and management purposes.W At E r sEnEgAl Design and Implementation of a New Cadastre System using Open Source Software of software vendors and IT service companies as the code can be modified by any qualified expert. PostgreSQL was chosen as Database Management System. The system comprises a GIS. Rapidly growing cities on the one hand and the need for developing agricultural land for food production on the other hand raise awareness that capable land administration and management are needed in order to make best use of limited resources. Senegalese cadastre experts with workstation. Poor land administration and land management are among the factors hindering sustainable development in many developing countries. At the same time the Directorate of Cadastre had the occasion to reinforce the technical and profes- sional standard of its staff. The design of the system was started by the elaboration of a conceptual model of the whole system. to ameliorate the production and to organize future maintenance of the cadastral database and the GIS. OSS is increasingly used for the development of many applications in the private sector and in public administration and proved to be cost-effective. QuantumGIS etc. The user or organisation remains independent Developed functions in ArcGIS such as printing of parcel extracts. a database and interfaces to the national taxation system. a model which covered at the same time the infrastructure. update and delete procedures. the hard.

At the same time a Geography Markup Language (GML) scheme has been defined in order to allow data exchange and interoperability with other organisations. Several functions were developed for automatic page layout generation and printing of parcel extracts on the basis of templates. In the future more training for operators and for administrators is crucial. an object relational mapper (ORM) framework. based on Npgsql was used. In order to connect the ArcGIS client to the PosgreSQL/PostGIS database the ZigGIS connector. Due to the availability of the source code of all developed components any contractor can update the application. However these systems are still in the conceptual or development phase and practical tests could only be carried out on a “demonstration level”. In the framework of the countrywide implementation of the system it is planned that information will be served from the central database located at the Direction Générale des Impôts et des Domaines in Dakar to regional centres.check will be organised centrally as skilled operators are not available at regional level. Advantages of ArcGIS are the layout and printing capabilities and the use of templates. NHibernate. This works not only for connections of multiple clients to the PosgreSQL/ PostGIS database but also for multiuser editing. which can be changed by the user without programming skills. An ArcGIS extension providing a user interface with additional functions was developed in C#. Local consultants were involved in the development and some changes could be carried out locally. Klaus Sponer Developed extension in ArcGIS. A Web Map Service (WMS) was configured and installed in order to serve maps directly to other organisations.

Topology constraints defined in the domain model are met by implementing verification routines in the database for individual spatial objects. namely with the agency responsible for title registration. For instance if a parcel has been changed or a new parcel is inserted into the database.
