WATER AUTHORITY DESIGN SERVICE

Advanced 3D Laser Solutions (ALS) recently completed a project
for the water industry at one of their pumping and filtration sites.
Our client for this project was an EPC contractor who required first
a RECAP scan project file, Smart 3D process model and Smart P&IDs
(Piping and Instrumentation diagrams). Although smaller in terms
of number of laser scans than a typical bulk storage terminal, water
industry installations present different challenges. For instance, a
large proportion of the process pipework is below ground and for
this project ALS would be using data from a buried services study to
complete our 3D modelling.

Having developed our scan plan and submitted RAMS (Risk
Assessment + Method Statement) documentation to the client,
our site scanning activities were completed in less than three days.
Part of the scan would require surveying of green-field areas where
ground profiling would be completed using the Autodesk Civils
software.

Within process buildings pipework was routed within
covered trenches and access plates needed to be removed to
gain vantage areas for scanning. ALS deployed our inverted tripod
to allow the FARO Focus scanners to be lowered in to trench to
gain process scan data to allow modelling of buried services. Our
background in working on industrial sites enabled ALS to liaise with
on-site operations to ensure safe access to exposed trenches.

On completion of the site surveying, the individual scans were
registered and processed in preparation for 3D modelling of all
scanned process. The 3D modelling for this client would however
extend beyond our captured 3D laser scan data to files covering the
visible process. Files handed over from the buried services study
would also be used by ALS to prepare a site model covering both the
above and below ground process pipework. The client operations
also required ALS to layer our model to reflect product colour coded
pipework nomenclature consistent with coded pipework used
across their network. Another satisfied client looking to partner with ALS in future, across the water industry network.

THE WATER INDUSTRIES PRESENT DIFFERENT CHALLENGES, SUCH AS PIPE WORK UNDERGROUND ALS USE GROUND PENETRATING RADAR SYSTEMS TO FIND THE BURIED LINES

PRE-pLANNING 

AlS will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.

RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS 

ALS recognise that any form of site work on an operating site must be subject of both RAMS along with planning documents in order to expedite an efficient and safe survey.

3D Laser scan 

Recognised as the referred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming  and subject to error.

Ounce ALS has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.

AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION 

ALS uses pipework recognition software to pick out the spherical shapes from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.

STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION 

ALS can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need  feed a new line through the site. ALS offer clash detection services.

CLIENT BENEFITS

LASER SCANNING

ALS are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognised as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error,

3D MODELLING

The vast engineering experience from over 30 years working within process industries has resulted in ALS now leading in the production of ‘brown field’ technical process models. ALS recognised the importance of our skilled 3D laser surveyors site familiarity.

SMART P&IDS

Piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) are considered a fundamental requirement for companies operating a process operation. P&IDs play a significant role in the maintenance and modification of the process that it describes and should be maintained
