Leading UK energy distributor, Western Power Distribution (WPD), has awarded Fugro a 2-year contract to process and publish data of its overhead network. Fugro’s Roames solution will help WPD unlock value from its data, providing the Digital Foundation to design, construct and maintain its infrastructure in a safe, reliable and efficient manner. Over the coming two years, WPD will be acquiring the data using its fleet of helicopters and LiDAR, an airborne remote sensing technique. Under the new agreement Fugro develops LiDAR applications using its game-changing Roames Virtual World Asset Management solution to deliver 2D and 3D models, analytics and reports. Quick turnaround and cloud processing of the enormous datasets are key components of the project. The results will provide valuable information to WPD as part of its vegetation management activity and compliance with relevant statutory clearance requirements associated with its overhead network.
