The petrochemical industry has been using 3D laser scanning for years, but more and more even other industrial sectors see the usefulness of this technique for the management of industrial plants.

Based on scan data as-built plans and 3D models are made. For piping installations information about isometrics and maintenance is coupled to the objects in the 3D model. This can be used for the management of the industrial installation.

The scan data provides information on the current situation, but also provides insight into possibilities for expansion. Clash detection can be used to determine where conflicts with new elements occur by combining the 3D point cloud of the existing installation with the design of the new elements that will be added. Conflicts are detected in the design phase, making the final implementation smoother and reducing failure costs.

3D laser scanning of complex industrial installations requires knowledge, insight and experience. A good choice of the scanning positions and heights has a large influence on the quality and completeness of the scan.
