Utility Vegetation Management

Vegetation growth near distribution and transmission lines has a direct and quantifiable impact on the reliability of networks. In fact, vegetation management is often the largest expense related to network maintenance. Electrical utilities are seeing a steady increase in difficulties achieving integrated vegetation management with traditional methods. According to experts, these problems occur primarily because of a combination of factors such as cumbersome manual work processes (both in the field and at the management level), accumulation of delays in scheduled annual trimming cycles, difficulty obtaining a complete overview of risks to their assets, low level of adoption of available technological solutions and cost of operations. For those reasons, Effigis has developed a turnkey solution for vegetation inventory assessment to help utilities face these challenges.
