On 9th September 2019, Typhoon Faxai hit Japan. In the Tokyo Metropolitan area, it caused electricity outages for 934,000 households, taking down 1,996 poles and two transmission towers.

 

TEPCO Power Grid was required to have daily press meetings to keep everyone informed of progress, but the lack of accurate and current information made it almost hard to forecast recovery timing. They quickly needed a new solution that would enable TEPCO to respond efficiently and effectively to this situation, and future severe weather conditions that are increasingly common in the Tokyo area. In the immediate term it needed to provide:

  • The Disaster Response Headquarters (DRH) with an accurate picture of the situation in the field in order to speed up recovery
  • Accurate forecast reports and improve communications between relevant organizations
