Energinet, the Danish national transmission system operator, has awarded Fugro a five-year framework agreement to capture aerial LiDAR and imagery data of its 3000-line-kilometre electricity transmission network.

The acquired data will be processed to develop a 3D digital twin of the network to identify critical clearances.

Fugro will also implement a dynamic network model to simulate the sag and swing of electrical conductors to significantly improve the accuracy of vegetation analytics.

As part of the framework, Fugro will provide individual tree crown detection, as well as fall-in and critical tree risk identification.

This initial analysis will lead to the development of a full-scale vegetation growth model allowing Energinet to proactively identify and prioritise risk for its whole network, conduct inspections through a web browser, and update and improve data quality.
