Water Services Locating Leakages

Water Services Locating LeakagesAre you grappling with the issue of water leakage in your pipelines?If you are seeking solutions to meet leakage reduction targets while maintaining sustainability and operational productivity. Look no further. Our LiDAR surveying company is here to assist with your water management practices and help you to tackle leaks head-on.Global ProblemWater leakage is a pressing global problem that hampers sustainability and efficiency, especially as leakage rates reach their highest levels in years. It is time to explore new approaches, and that's where LiDAR technology comes into play.LiDAR to the rescueLiDAR,  scanning and mapping technology, offers a comprehensive solution that visualises potential issues within your pipes, identifying factors that could lead to leaks in stunning 3D detail. From cracks and pipe deformations to joint displacement, our LiDAR experts can detect and measure these irregularities with accuracy. By partnering with our LiDAR surveying company, you unlock a range of advantages tailored to your specific projects. Precise Leak Detection and Localisation:Our LiDAR technicians can survey vast lengths of pipe, accurately pinpointing potential leakage spots. By generating highly detailed 3D models of your water infrastructure, we provide you with an all-encompassing view, enabling you to swiftly identify issues and prioritise repairs with precision.  Optimised Resource Allocation:Use our LiDAR survey data to gain insights into leak severity and environmental impact. With our data-driven approach, your limited resources are strategically deployed to address critical leaks and future pipe problems.Network Modeling and Simulation:Integrate our LiDAR data with modeling software to evaluate the potential impact of leaks on your network. Our data will help you plan effective strategies to reduce water loss and  improve your system efficiency.Proven track recordOur LiDAR surveys have a track record of successful collaborations with renowned industry leaders, including ‘Thames Water, Scottish Water, Wessex Water, and Veolia'.CollaborationOur collaboration with Thames Water has provided valuable insights into their unique requirements. Through our LiDAR solutions, we have effectively detected pipe issues. Additionally, our partnership with Veolia, a global leader in environmental solutions, has further enriched our experience in implementing LiDAR and GPS technology for water management projects.  

Client Testimonials 3D LiDAR and Drone Surveys

Client Testimonials  3D LiDAR and Drone Surveys Through the utilisation of LiDAR technology, our clients have experienced precision and accuracy in their scanning projects. By harnessing the power of laser pulses, we capture high-resolution, three-dimensional data clouds with remarkable detail and resolution. This enables our clients to visualise and analyse their environments with clarity. This in turn helps them to make informed decisions to drive their projects forward with confidence.

Scanning with Network Rail – Scans, drones and viaduct arches

Whalley viaduct built in 1846 stretches across the river Calder. The viaduct is a magnificent structure, consisting of 49 brick arches, 620m long and 21.3m high. Locally the area is known the Whalley Arches. Traditionally, the surveying and inspection of these structures would be undertaken manually, with measurements and repetitive paper-based data entry. The traditional method is both time consuming and expensive; requiring extensive scaffolding. To eliminate the human errors attached to traditional surveying, and to save on time, we employ terrestrial 3D laser scanning techniques to capture buildings and structure data. Combined with photography of the structure, the laser scan data assists in assessments, helping with the prioritisation of maintenance issues,which may or maynot be required. Our team travelled to Whalley Arches late in the evening, our job was to scan the top railway section at midnight, the best time to work when scanning railways - whilst trains were stopped. However, due to strong wind gusts and torrential rain, the night time scan was cancelled much to our dismay. Undeterred, the next morning, clear skies and a mild breeze greeted us as we set off with a RIEGL scanner, two drones and camera team to capture the arches. Several areas under the arches required cleaning out of saplings, brambles and general discarded waste. These were cleared by the ever helpful team from Network Rail, armed with Chainsaws, and industrial hedge trimmers. As soon as these obstacles were cleared, giving us line of sight for the scanner and operator and easier access to the grounds, our job commenced. Each arch was scanned with terrestrial lidar, which made for some interesting scrambling up embankments and into residents gardens to ensure a clear view of the arches for the scanner. Thanks to all the residents who allowed us into their property, who were all very kind and welcoming. A total of 187 scan positions, combined with 3,000 high resolution photographs gave us a highly detailed accurate comprehensive analysis of the complete structure.
