Operational Sites Map – Alkane Energy

Requirement

Alkane Energy is one of the UK’s fastest growing independent power generators, operating mid-sized ‘gas to power’ electricity plants providing both predictable and fast response capacity to the grid. Alkane contacted Lovell Johns with a requirement to develop location mapping of their operational sites in the form of an interactive web based map and also mapping for presentation purposes.

Solution – Site location mapping

Following an exploratory discussion Alkane were provided with a range of options for bringing an interactive location map into their website; Google Maps, OpenStreetMap and OS OpenSpace were all considered.  Alkane chose the OpenStreetMap API as background mapping to display their 24 site locations displayed as a layer.  Lovell Johns geocoded the site addresses which are differentiated by their energy type by a marker and matching Key.  All sites return information and photographs when clicked.

The mapping was seamlessly embedded into Alkane’’s website as an iframe.

Result

From agreeing the specification and supply of site details and photographs the site was live within just a few weeks.  Lovell Johns also continue to provide hosting, maintenance and updating of the application.
