XG & XQ 275KV OHL SURVEY
Jacobs Engineering UK engaged our services to undertake an overhead line survey of the existing XG & XQ 275kV overhead lines located near Neilston in Scotland.
As part of a design study to facilitate the reconductoring of the existing lines a topographic survey was undertaken to locate all the ground and vertical features of the circuits.
The attachment points on each tower were located using a total station and RTK GNSS.
At the same time detailed measurements were made on the towers to check for verticality.
A series of photographs of each tower were captured including details of the foundations.
A 3D CAD model was produced and handed over to the client along with a verticality report and photographs of each structure.
The field work took three weeks to complete the full 22km survey
