Laser Scanning for Pipeline Mapping is an advanced technology offered by NDT Group to accurately map pipeline integrity sites. This service involves using a laser scanner to capture precise data of the pipeline site before and after repairs, or after recoating is completed.
Laser scanning technology allows for the creation of a detailed 3D model of the pipeline, including the centerline of the pipeline, which can be used to determine the location of any defects or damages. This information can be critical in identifying which sections of the pipeline need to be repaired or replaced, and ensuring the pipeline is operating safely and efficiently.
Additionally, laser scanning can be used to verify that the pipeline site has been successfully recoated after repairs. This provides evidence that the repairs have been completed successfully, and the pipeline is safe for operation.
By having the point data cloud obtained from laser scanning, NDT Group can assist clients in implementing Digital Twin solutions for their pipeline infrastructure. A Digital Twin is a virtual replica of a physical asset that can be used to simulate and monitor the asset’s performance in real-time.
