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
