have extensive experience of using both terrestrial
and airborne lidar to provide solutions to the
powerline industry (and in fact any corridor
In combination with Leica TruView, the scan
data can be shared over the internet. You can
see point clouds on screen just as if you were
standing right where the laser scanner captured
the scan data. Very useful for basic measurements
and markups - Truview will allow users to share
data throughout your design or asset management
team - across multiple offices.
We are also working on identifying areas of
rust on the tower and so the laser data could
be used to provide a condition report.
of the technology include:
of cateneries for soft (vegetation) and hard
(buildings etc) clearance (vegetation management)
and infringement surveys.
uprating of transmission lines.
- creating engineering drawings of existing
towers, where plans have been lost.
verticality and deformation reporting.
and/or insulator replacement.
management - for GIS input.
modelling of the towers and catenaries and
all surrounding environments. Ideal for visualisation
and presentation to the public or clients.
mapping of the pipeline corridor - for new
build and re-alignments.
stations for downlead infringements, safety
planning of clearances between plant.
loads directly in to PLS-CADD - and is applicable
to transmission and distribution powerline
scanning provides very high accuracy, reduces costs
and 'de-risks' your work.
the image (left) for enlarged view. Here, we measure
bolt to bolt measurements and identify the edge
of the tower leg and the tower heel.
Scanning can provide very high levels of detail.
Literally every nut and bolt!.
point cloud has been classified (or layered). This
information was imported into PLS CADD for analysis
of possible infringements.
of tower geometry / distortion for stress calculations
and monitoring work.
