Placing of any wind turbines, transmission towers has always been a challenge for project developers as it requires lots of groundwork, manpower requirement and time to be put in. One of the critical aspects of this effort is understanding the ground elevation profile , which is before placing these assets.

Accurate placements can help:

  • Increase the power produced by a wind turbine thereby reducing the intermittency and will help in increasing the plant load factor.
  • Perform accurate calculations for the sag of a transmission or a distribution line. Higher or lower value of transmission line sag can have significant impact on the line conductor.

GenRay EXPLORER™, powered by ESRI, allows its users to calculate the elevation profile for a selected feature or a measured line along with a web map anywhere in the region covered, thereby helping the users to find exact locations for placing their assets on ground.
