3D Space scanning and documentation in Renewable Industry

Documentation for Renewable Energy maintenance such as wind turbine cabin, engine room, or dams motor room, is a critical part. It is important to verify how maintenance is being performed or if there are any issues that need to be solved later on.
Verification based on good documentation lowers the amount of work due to human error, especially when there is a complex machinery like a Wind Turbine engine.

Why use virtual-reality for your business?

Using our virtual-reality service, you can later review documentation to find critical maintenance information, saving time and money for the owner and operator of the renewable asset.

3D Space scanning is a ideal solution for renewable energy inspection.

Our solution gives you immersive access to critical building intelligence including accurate measurements of the structure and dimensions of the equipment within.

Make measurements and dimensions on the 3D space with 99% percent accuracy

Not only allows you to view existing conditions easily, but it can improve facilities management and design. Using our 3D scanning solution you can eliminate hand-drawn sketches and reduce the time it takes to deliver floor plans

Tag the 3D Space to create visual punch lists and operation manuals

Our solution offers you the ability to create equipment inventory at your hand, using tags to label equipment with digital tags to document repairs, maintenance, or training information. It’s easy to share with your maintenance personnel.
Using digital tags tool to document repairs, maintenance, training information, various forms of media can be placed in the precise spot where viewers will find relevant content.

Link to specific spots in the 3D Space

Another advantage is that you can improve collaboration between distant teams from anywhere in the world. Not only that your communication will be improved with visualization when discussing existing projects on site, but you will improve efficiency in the inspection and the decision-making process.
New employees can receive safety training and inductions in a virtual environment. A 3D walkthrough improves training for your employees, especially in hard to reach or potentially dangerous areas. Operators can experience realistic scenarios without placing themselves in real danger. Benefits: interactive learning, site specific training, inductions, anytime access
