Vegetation Management and Inspection

Vegetation management is both a necessary and an expensive operating cost for electrical utilities. We collect, analyze, and deliver risk assessments on electrical utility assets in days instead of months. Through our tech enabled solutions, our partners can reinforce their vegetation management programs, helping them to protect their assets in normally difficult to reach terrain through a more cost-effective, expedient, and safe process.  

Vegetation encroachment is an uphill battle as the vegetation is continuously growing. We efficiently quantify and classify the risks related to vegetation encroachment, which is critical to ensuring the service continuity, while reducing maintenance and intervention costs. We effectively pinpoint crucial points of interest to focus on high priority, high risk areas.

By collecting, analyzing, and delivering the risk assessments on utility territories, we unlock the ability to mitigate risk within days instead of months. We help determine immediate issues and needs of a circuit and forecast potential trouble spots which help avert power outages and other future issues

By carefully combining 3D models and point clouds of a power line and the surrounding local vegetation, we can accurately find the distance between the two and prioritize points of interest accordingly, in advance of an issue arising. Our unique approach to inspections offers a bird’s eye view from multiple angles and perspectives to give a clear view of where to manage vegetation.
