In the nuclear power plants : Vandellós II, Almaráz and Cofrentes, under the direction, coordination and management of GDES (Grupo Dominguis Energy Services), our team has been in charge of the data collection of existing electrical conduits and the three-dimensional modeling. Because of our commitment to excellence in safety and reliability and of course our large track record  in such industry, our client has opted for our Laser Scanning and Building Information Modeling (BIM) services.

Scan-to-BIM and its benefits

The Faro Focus 3D x330 scanner was the tool used to perform the surveys of the electrical ducts and collect all essential information with point clouds and volumes of high quality images. From the data obtained, with the use of BIM and Revit, three-dimensional models of the current state were created, to subsequently include the designed endothermic protection solutions (fire protection) and obtain their measurements with high precision.

The Laser Scanner has simplified the data collection process, getting a significant reduction in the risks involved when we work at heights, accidental actions with the equipment necessary for manual data collection and exposure times of personnel; translating in terms of occupational safety and nuclear safety.

The benefits of the use of these technologies are transcendent, in addition to obtaining accurate and structured data, it offers the opportunity to provide optimized solutions, which contemplate a greater number of data and factors for the design.In turn, it is possible to better plan actions, increase safety, avoid future problems and, consequently, increase the efficiency of nuclear power facilities.

We would like to thank our client GDES for the trust in our team.
