General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

It is not uncommon to find numerous unregulated power cables, and other services lines (water, gas, etc.) in many frontier regions.  Whilst damaging a small water pipeline poses little HSE risk, unregulated power cables do pose a threat.  It would be beneficial to us to have a tool that could identify the location of over-head power-line routes and allow us to understand the clearance heights.

This will influence logistics and H&S considerations such as  movement of staff and plant.

Thematic information requirements

4. Obtain detailed land-use information,           14. Obtain detailed imagery of the surface,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

There have been fatalities as a result of survey staff walking under overhead lines with survey equipment.  Where this risk can be totally removed, it should be.

Some development equipment have clearance heights that exceed the height of some power cable
