Our Overhead Line (OHL) survey specialists have access to the latest point cloud technology to conduct Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) site inspections. This allows for safe and efficient collection of data via a laser scanning method, removing the need to revisit the survey in future whilst providing extremely accurate information.
