Improving safety through technology and automation

We're using immersive technologies and GPS controlled plant to enhance safety and reduce disruptions to our customers.

Project teams now identify and experience site conditions in a virtual setting before executing on site. Situations involving high risk or high consequence environments can be thoroughly worked through – virtually – to ensure the optimal methodology can be determined and procedures practiced by those responsible before entering the live environment.

The same models can be used to communicate clearance zones in the form of 3D volumes where machinery should not cross or leave. We've used this technology on projects such as the Papakura to Pukekohe Electrification project. If machinery approaches a predefined tolerance to the zone, the equipment will power down to prevent undue risk to people or plant.
