In recent years, there has been significant interest in creating ‘Digital Twins’ of mission critical assets
Terrestrial surveying is well-established to produce datasets that can be considered ‘Digital Twins’, efforts to extend this capability underwater to inspect submerged infrastructure are gaining wider attention and uptake within the Asset Management sector.
These techniques can also be supplemented with UAV based LiDAR, photogrammetry and HD camera in addition to land-based laser scanning. Sensors can also be deployed from tripods or shore-side cranes where required.
Data is processed, analysed and compiled by specialist surveyors, with deliverables and timescales tailored to suit individual project needs. This provides a 3D point cloud throughout, giving an accurate, useable baseline survey for future repeat asset integrity studies. Our 3D modelling of these assets provides essential data to help mitigate risk both now and in the future.
