Nov 2001
WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 5 -- Manitoba Hydro has selected TerraPoint to provide light detection and ranging (LIDAR) scanning laser technology to its new subsidiary, W.I.R.E. Services, which provides verification and rerating services on transmission lines.

According to W.I.R.E. Services General Manager Jim Koop, utility companies across the United States and Canada are looking to upgrade their transmission lines to meet growing demands for energy, "but many times information regarding line designs is out-of-date, incomplete or missing all together. LIDAR technology provides a fast, cost-effective method for collecting highly accurate data that allows utilities to make the best-informed decisions regarding upgrade and rerating options."
