Patrol+® a flying success with survey completed for National Grid

Jul 8, 2016 -- NM Group has just completed flying 300 miles of transmission line with their new innovative service - Patrol+®. The project was conducted in New York State for National Grid. This pioneering technique combines a routine helicopter line patrol with vegetation LiDAR reporting; all from a single flight.

Nick Ferguson, Senior VP of NM Group commented “Patrol+ provides a clear path to defendable regulatory compliance. It is used to increase reliability and safety through the quantification of vegetation risk. The installation of Patrol+® technology on existing patrol flights enables access to LiDAR technology at low marginal cost”.

Bertram Stewart, Vegetation Strategy Manager at National Grid stated “Utility companies and vegetation managers are constantly looking for opportunities to leverage every OPEX & CAPEX dollar. NM Group’s Patrol+ provides utility asset managers with additional options to leverage their planned patrols by obtaining asset condition data”.
