Using a combination of triangulated geographical location, year of installation
and painting records a detailed assessment can be made on the likely impact of
corrosion for each tower on a given route.
Capcis, working with Eve and National Grid has developed a macro level system;
CARE that can show degradation of towers based on MET office data for the
last forty years, pollution information and locality.
This project is a trial of the analysis package and assessment of its application to
Distribution assets and suitability for wider adoption. A key objective is to
confirm whether the software can be used for 132kV towers, which are older
than the 400kV structures on which the software was based.
