AsBuilt Hydro Dam Intake

The Challenge:

The hydro dam management requested the scanning and modeling of the intake system.  The facility did not have as-built drawings available for upgrade planning of aging equipment. 


The Solution:

AsBuilt was contracted to collect the as-is conditions of the dam intake arrangement.  The data was collected in an 8-hour window and converted to 3D model space within 2 weeks.  The dams within the system are in remote locations.  Gathering information without scanning would be time consuming and dangerous.
