Processing - Energy Trasmission - Nuclear Decommissioning
A crucial aspect in spatial planning, refurbishment or decommissioning of a complex/hazardous facility is the safe collection of accurate spatial geo-referenced data. Laser Scanning allows the modelling of inaccessible areas, from a safe distance, producing a detailed and accurate 3D view of the asset. Qualitative information is also obtained using high resolution photography which further enhances the effectiveness of the data. By merging traditional surveying methods and this Laser Scanning technology, UTEC StarNet has successfully proven its cost effectiveness also in this market and continues operating in major industrial projects throughout the world.

Visual Impact Assessment
Complex and hazardous structures such as offshore oil rigs, refineries, and industrial plants are easily and quickly surveyed by means of this new technology which is the least intrusive (i.e. minimised H&S issues) and implies no need to return to site (i.e. one survey is enough to gather all the data required). This data coupled with GPS and hi-quality photography provides very highly detailed and precise 2D CAD drawings/3D models/visuals which can be then be utilised as an as-built record for retrofitting and front end engineering design.
In addition, UTEC StarNet adds value by providing all deliverables on a web-based interface which drastically simplifies Asset Visualisation and Management called StarNet isite. This user-friendly, customer-branded web portal allows drastic OpEx and HSE costs reduction by enabling multiple project engineers to remotely view, measure and manage survey data such as drawings, photography, 3D models, etc from anywhere in the world.
