Successful Completion of Australian Project: Efficient and Ahead of Schedule


NM Group is proud to announce the successful completion of our recent project for Transgrid, a major utility based in NSW, Australia. Demonstrating our commitment to excellence and efficiency, we completed the project ahead of schedule, delivering high-quality results for Transgrid's bushfire mitigation program.

Project Overview

NM Group has been collaborating with Transgrid since 2020. This project involved delivering a high-accuracy aerial LiDAR survey and analysis for Transgrid's 13,000 km transmission network and the surrounding environment to support their annual fire safety program. New South Wales is at high risk of bushfires, and the impact from a fire event can be devastating. As such, this has been an incredibly important undertaking for NM Group.

Our field operation team began data acquisition on February 1 and completed the survey across all networks by February 28—an impressive feat, averaging 650 line km per day!

Once all data was collected, it underwent several processing and analysis stages. The project was fully delivered on May 24, one week ahead of the contract deadline. Our team of GIS and engineering experts worked diligently to ensure the data was processed swiftly and accurately. We utilized advanced automation technology to analyze the data, providing detailed insights into vegetation encroachments and potential risks. This rapid turnaround supports effective decision-making and enhances operational efficiency for our clients.

Key Project Achievements:

  • Timely Completion: We completed the project ahead of schedule, proving that airborne LiDAR surveys for large networks can be both quick and highly accurate.
  • Comprehensive Deliverables: We achieved a fast turnaround while ensuring high-quality deliverables, which are crucial for our utility clients.
