Dalekovod d.d., based in Zagreb, Croatia, has specialised in the design and manufacture of electrical transmission lines, substations, and electrical components for major highway projects since 1949. The majority of its products are sold internationally.
Time-consuming and expensive manual processes were eliminating Dalekovod’s twin competitive advantages of European-based manufacturing and low labour costs in Croatia.

CATIA V5 reduced design cycle times by as much as 70 percent by eliminating late-cycle errors, hand-built models and imprecise analysis techniques.
Design cycles have been cut from four months to three weeks. Prototypes that took 16-20 weeks to prepare are now created in a week.
