Using Power Lines Pro to identify & rectify risk clearance violations network-wide.
An Australian Utility with a very large network was looking for a more efficient way to conduct their design process, manage asset inspections and pole replacements, and organise vegetation management.
This utility brought on PLP Analytics, allowing them to both model and then comprehensively optimize their existing distribution network design. This enabled them to view and analyse their grid with precision. They conducted in-depth analysis using existing company data and the model to prioritise issues like vegetation encroachment and improve efficiency.
By creating a model in PLP Analytics, the utility saved over 3000 site visits in the first year - this resulted in a cost reduction of approximately AUD$3-5m.
The utility increased design & engineering productivity by a 3 - 5x improvement.
The utility increased its operational efficiency on a network of 1.5 million poles & 120k miles.
