AnalyzeVegetation ManagementFor Power Lines

Use digital twins to manage your Power Grid. Detect clearance issues with nearby vegetation and minimize safety risks.

Power LinesAnalyze vegetation encroachment

One of the main reasons for wildfires is power lines being too close to nearby vegetation. In the dry season electric sparks can cause touching branches to go up in flames. It is usually very hard to follow up on fast growing vegetation, but still you need, at all times, to know when and where intervention is needed.

Trees falling on power lines or tree limbs coming into contact with power lines are also frequent causes of power outages, especially in combination with strong winds. Tree damage is the second most common cause of power outages.

Another problem is snow and ice build-up. Tree branches become heavy with snow and ice causing them to break and fall into power lines, damaging them in the process.

Process

Our experienced drone pilots can fly over miles and miles of power lines to get the pictures we need. By means of those images, our engineers reconstruct the power lines in 3D, as well as the vegetation around them. Advanced algorithms then calculate a collision point cloud, that tells us and you where the vegetation is coming too close to the power lines.

Deliverables

We provide our clients with a detailed point cloud and a map in CAD format, colored in a way that tells you where intervention is needed, or where it will be needed in a short period of time. With this data, power line managers can decide when and where to send out their maintenance teams.
