Forestry companies to benefit from new methodology of calculating compensation payouts

Blom has been commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration to conduct an inventory of hazardous trees along power lines that supply the Swedish railway network with electricity. All trees that are predicted to fall on the power lines within 8 years of growth have been identified and the current forestry standard has been used to calculate compensation. The inventory has been created entirely from helicopter based laser scanning and aerial imagery.

The Norwegian Statens Vegvesen (State Road Administration) is currently converting the E16 route into a four-lane highway from Kløfta to Kongsvinger. The proposed section of new infrastructure is an estimated 60 km, the main traffic vein from Hallingdal, Valdres, Gudbrandsdalen and parts of Eastern Norway, to Sweden, and is the third most important section of road crossing the Norwegian/Swedish border.

Vegetation analysis based on aerial imagery under low voltage distribution networks

The clearing of vegetation is an important operation completed by Utility companies, ensuring a stable supply of electricity within the local distribution network. Vegetation clearing is normally carried out annually based on specific management plans. This task requires considerable resources and effort; there is a requirement for extensive inspections to survey the initial state of each network.
