Roames VWAM delivers a complete and accurate 3D virtual model of a power company’s assets. It enables operators to manage risk on the network, streamline maintenance and meet compliance regulations, enhancing customer service and saving as much as 40% on operational costs.

Network’s awards programme recognises excellence and innovation in the power industry. The Gamechanger category showcases the new technology or product that is most likely to change the game for networks, with potential to create lasting benefits for the business, its customers and other stakeholders.

In selecting Fugro the panel of leading figures and regulators in the UK energy industry said, “Fugro’s Roames Virtual World Asset Management shows a clearly innovative technology that completely re-writes how distribution network operators manage their overhead lines. It has significant and proven benefits, improving the service offering and saving time and labour for the workforce.”

Jan Kema, Fugro’s Global Business Development Manager said, “This award is a fantastic achievement for all the team. Our Roames platform is revolutionising how power infrastructure owners monitor the environmental context and condition of their assets and for many represents the first step in their digital transformation. Its analytics and visualisation tools help operators resolve their complex, real-world challenges in a virtual, 3D setting – reducing network risk and saving time and resources.”

Fugro monitors well over two million spans of power network each year in Europe, Australia and the USA through its Roames platform.
