Case study overview

National Grid Connections teams leverage Sensat’s visualisation platform to support virtual siting studies and option selection for substation upgrades.

National Grid Energy Transmission need to conduct a siting study for a new UK-based substation in Navenby, Lincolnshire.

National Grid has vast amounts of information available to support their projects. However, this information is:

  • Stored in different platforms which require specific licensing
  • Held in various formats, including PDFs and on paper maps
  • Managed by other teams.

On top of that, the team possesses excellent LiDAR data but struggles to access and view it. In response, the Connection teams sought a solution to open access to their information earlier to meet their deadlines.
