AsBuilt of Hoppers for Dry Ash Conversion

The Challenge:

A legacy coal fire power plant had to upgrade their bottom ash handling system.  The plan was to convert to a dry ash system for regulatory compliance.  Unfortunately, up to date drawings of the area were not available for the multimillion-dollar upgrade project.  

The Solution:

3D laser scanning was used to capture the as-is condition and the scan data was used to develop a 3D model of the equipment.
