Boosting Quality, Saving Time and Effort

In this 140 million Euro project, ANDRITZ HYDRO builds the Gouvães pumped storage hydropower station in Ribeira da Pena, Portugal. The Austrian hydropower expert relies on Insite LMS for

  • logistics,
  • materials management,
  • defects management,
  • progress tracking,
  • construction site diary and
  • time tracking.

„We have two goals: We want to improve time recording and the quality of our reporting using the Insite LMS' construction site diary feature.“

Gerhard Laher
Manager Global Site Operations ANDRITZ HYDRO

Consistent Digital Reporting

One goal was to increase the quality of reporting. This was easily achieved with Insite LMS. The software generates uniform reports and daily logs for the project team - at the push of a button.

Simple, Reliable Time Tracking

One goal was to reduce time recording effort. This was achieved using the Insite LMS Time App. With this app, the presence of employees and external suppliers on the construction site is recorded digitally. ANDRITZ HYDRO uses a fingerprint terminal with an interface to Insite LMS for this purpose. This data can, of course, be used for subsequent processes such as payroll or personnel management.
