Whether nuclear, wind or fossil, the power generation industry
has been tested by a confluence of challenges in recent years.
Plants face continued increases in demand coupled with the
need to be safe, efficient and environmentally sustainable.
Aging infrastructure requires ongoing modifications to increase production, improve safety and minimize environmental impact. However, these modifications cannot be implemented until as-is conditions are accurately captured and documented. Using traditional tools such as clipboards, tape measures and 2D layouts to document the most hazardous environments is time consuming, fraught with risk, and prone to errors and missed information.
Meeting the rapidly growing demand for energy requires constant plant expansions and modifications.
Safely and efficiently maintaining and decommissioning power plants requires accurate as-is documentation.
Increasingly stringent environmental and safety regulations require plants to quickly retrofit to remain compliant.
You cannot afford to lose time in the documentation process or
risk interference with existing structures by working with old,
incomplete or nonexistent data.
Leica 3D laser scanners and software solutions will provide this missing information and allow you to design in context with reality. A laser scanner can record a complete, accurate digital representation (point clouds) of a plant with a process that is far superior to conventional methods of data acquisition such as tape measures, hand lasers, lifts and scaffolding.
Easily document everything in sight and avoid additional site visits to capture missed measurements
Accurately document as-is conditions without posing risks to personnel on the site
Efficiently and accurately document the power plant's maze of structures and pipe supports so the facility can get back up and running quickly
Leica Geosystems' 3D laser scanners are the industry standard for accurately and efficiently recording digital data (point clouds) of plants and facilities. It's an easy, quick way to gather precise as-is information safely and cost effectively.
Using Leica's High Definition Scanning (HDS) software suite – Cyclone, CloudWorx, and TruView – you can stitch individual point clouds together to create a complete picture, virtually visit a facility or structure, sort throught the data, evaluate it and use it to communicate globally.
