AECOM 3D transmission substation models

A fairly fundamental greenfield substation design is the starting point for the adoption of 3-D design.

Substation Models Go 3-D

Design examples reflect a journey toward fully integrated 3-D transmission substation models.

Driven by a need for multidiscipline substation design and intelligent data capture, the U.K. and Ireland are moving toward 3-D substation modeling and building information modeling (BIM) implementation in the transmission sector. AECOM’s implementation of 3-D substation modeling enabled several early wins, including visualization of concept designs, improving delivery through increased quality and efficiency, and allowing multiple discip
