Whether nuclear, wind or fossil, the power generation industry has been tested by a confluence of challenges in recent years. Plants face continued increases in demand coupled with the need to be safe, efficient and environmentally sustainable.

Challenges to consider

Growing Energy Demand

Meeting the rapidly growing demand for energy requires constant plant expansions and modifications.


Safely and efficiently maintaining and decommissioning power plants requires accurate as-is documentation.

Regulatory Compliance

Increasingly stringent environmental and safety regulations require plants to quickly retrofit to remain compliant.

benefits of lidar documentation


With 3D laser scanning data at your fingertips you have the ability to visualize your plant like never before, making it easy to not only see particular areas and their needs but also where they are in the grand scheme of things with one fell swoop.

Speed of Accurate Documentation and Verification

3D laser scanning solutions allow you to efficiently capture vast amounts of valuable data of your site, avoiding unnecessary critical shutdowns or hazardous exposure.


With the ability to capture comprehensive 3D measurements quickly not only helps in properly assessing problem areas, but also in keeping crew members’ exposure to the plant at a minimum.
