Bentley Systems, Incorporated announced it has acquired EasyPower, a developer of design and analysis software tools, including arc flash solutions, for electrical engineering professionals. Since its founding in 1984, Portland, Oregon-EasyPower has combined graphics-based modeling and analysis in order to make solving complex electrical engineering problems ever more straightforward and accessible. EasyPower products are primarily used for designing, analyzing, and monitoring power distribution systems serving industrial and commercial facilities, to ensure safety, reliability, and regulatory compliance.
Bentley’s acquisition of EasyPower, to extend integrated and iterative power systems design and analysis for infrastructure digital twins of every type, broadens its comprehensiveness in infrastructure engineering. With an increasingly electrified future and with disparate and widely distributed energy resources on both sides of “the meter,” all infrastructure assets will benefit – in performance, economics, safety, and resilience – from continued simulation and assessment of power distribution conditions and designs over their project and operating lifecycles. Priorities for Bentley Systems will include integrating EasyPower’s schema and digital workflows with Bentley’s OpenBuildings, OpenFlows, OpenPlant, OpenRail, and Bentley Raceway and Cable Management applications.
The acquisition of EasyPower initially adds 45 expert colleagues in North America.
