Digital Twins APplications To safeguard critical electrical, natural gas, Water & Wastewater, & Communications infrastructure

Utilities & Energy

Utilities and energy infrastructure is critical to every aspect of our daily life—Visual Plan Digital Twins help manage operational change and secure the grid for maximum uptime.

Digital Twins help keep utilities operational with Scalable remote visibility and oversight.

For utilities and energy, scalability is critical. Scalability of output as well as oversight. With Visual Plan’s Digital Twins, organization, access, and tracking of key site, asset, and inspection documentation is geo-tagged and associated with each of your sites, all consolidated in one remotely accessible hub.

Maximizing Critical Knowledge Retention with 3D Digital Twins & 360 Photogrammetry

Losing control of utility/energy systems due to operator infrastructure knowledge limits, can be measured directly in the rising cost of energy wasted and customer rate hikes. Not as obvious, the greater cost of poor public relations, fines and/or employee injury – lawsuits to the power producer result from this challenge. 

Operational efficiency and effectiveness within energy production is severely hindered by the challenge that employee losses occur (planned or unplanned). The Visual Plan 3D visualization provides a walkable virtual tour of your facility and critical asset information to help you maximize staff Knowledge Retention of operations for effective business continuance actions immediately, or in the planning phase.

  • Reduce or eliminate delays executing Managed Operational Change (MOC)
  • Gain instant remote access to critical information
  • Improve workforce knowledge retention
  • Mitigate risk and increase safety, including during onboarding and process management
  • Achieve high return energy cost savings
  • Reduce downtime with expedited way-finding and route-planning
