AsBuilt of a 700-foot Underground Conveyor

The Challenge:

A power generation plant needed to replace a 700-foot long, underground conveyor that had reached the end of its serviceable life.   Accurate drawings were not readily available, and many modifications had been made to the conveyor over its 40-year life that were not documented.


The Solution:

AsBuilt utilized 3D laser scanning to capture the as-is conditions of the conveyor, focusing on both loading areas and leg anchor bolt locations which had been modified over the years. After completing capture and processing the data, the 3D model was developed to allow designers to engineer a replacement system with exact fit up in key connection areas.
