Foresight detects with pinpoint accuracy non-visible electrical defects well in advance of them becoming visually evident or causing a fault. Foresight can be used on all distribution and transmission networks, along with substations from 6kV to 275kV. Foresight identifies the root cause of intermittent faults.
Foresight provides accurate maintenance forecasting based on precise detection, reliable data and forensic analysis by our experienced engineers. This delivers increased network safety, public safety and network reliability (SAIDI).
Foresight delivers significant savings. Faster, more accurate inspections result in efficient deployment of resources and optimised maintenance and replacement schedules. Earlier detection and prediction of potential issues avoids the risk of costly downtime.
Foresight can pinpoint defects directly related to intermittent faults, which significantly reduces Rapid Inspection cost, cost of repeat outages and unnecessary repair.
Foresight’s predictive analysis technology has been deployed on over 200,000 poles, more than 20,000 sub-transmission poles and 2,500 transmission towers in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands - resulting in a substantial decrease in maintenance expenditure for utility owners.
The Australian mining sector has benefited from a significant reduction in potential production losses directly related to network outages.
Developed by EIS Global in Korea, Ultrasonic Inspection technology has been successfully used by KEPCO in Korea, with the collection of 14 million data points over eight years.
With close to 95% of the national network surveyed annually, pre-emptive rectification of the defects found has improved KEPCO’s SAIDI by 42%.
