Move offshore with Transmission Pipeline placement, discover potential locations for the asset by defining Start, Intermediate, and End points for the corridor and area being analyzed.
When constructing Transmission Pipelines, take into account any Start, Intermediate, and End points which the network should run through. By routing based on these locations, you will produce a system as optimized as possible.
Integrated Geomancy can include as many supplemental datasets and constraints as your team wishes to include. Enhance your model and optimization results by exploring which variables are most often used.
Customization is key in determining the most optimal network the area. This includes implementing practices that allow you to place assets so that they avoid other features, like shipping channels offshore.
With the Analysis tools available in Integrated Geomancy, your team has the power to tell the system where it will start and end - and even where it will stop along the way. By generating Transmission Pipeline routes based on this information, you ensure the field matches the assets housed within it.
Prior to generating the Transmission Pipeline corridor, your team can specify the Start point - or location where the route will begin.
Determine the End point (shown above in red) of the Transmission Pipeline prior to allowing Integrated Geomancy to generate the network, designating where the route will stop.
Are there specific locations where the pipeline needs to be placed? Whether these include check points or company resources, specify these Intermediate points so that the network can be routed through them.
To help generate Transmission Pipeline routes in an environment as realistic as possible, we encourage you to include as many and as varied input spatial datasets within the Integrated Geomancy model as you have available. This input is used to general surface models off of which optimization will be based.
In order for the Integrated Geomancy application to effectively optimize the locations of Offshore assets, a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) must be provided. This data, alongside any supplemental data and constraints, allows the toolkit to determine the best placements for assets like Transmission Pipelines.
When the Transmission Pipeline is calculated, a surface model is provided to aide your team should alternative routing need to occur. This raster dataset shows those locations where the network is the most (i.e., blue) and least (i.e., yellow) optimized for the area.
Produced by the Integrated Geomancy toolkit, this surface serves as input for nearly every Analysis tool. It also acts as a helpful reference for where construction can and cannot occur based on the data included in the model. For example, this surface shows those shipping channels and environmentally protected zones within the study area.
Generated by the application alongside the Constructability Surface, this solution offers a reference for those input datasets - such as Environmental, Geotechnical, and Landform variables - that have the most impact on the overall constructability of the area in which your team is working.
The Integrated Geomancy application offers a multitude of ways for your team to customize your approach to the Transmission Pipeline route being identified. One of the most valuable ways in which this is accomplished is through the option to avoid specific features - like shipping channels offshore or railways onshore - with the goal of routing the network around these assets for good measure.
An example of this feat offshore is shown below. To ensure the Transmission Pipeline network never crosses the shipping channel in the area, Integrated Geomancy's robust decision engine routes the system so that it avoids the heavily traveled portion of the transportation route altogether. This results in a completely altered route for the
