SOFTWARE

App for professional inspections

We have developed SMOHS Inspector to provide hydropower operators with a professional tool for their inspections. In comparison to the conventional reports of inspections, the app has the following advantages:

   •  Central data storage
   •  Georeferencing of the surveys
   •  Standardization of the data
   •  Introduction of a uniform terminology

       and concerted evaluation criteria
   •  Linking of sketches, photos, video and audio recordings
   •  Automatic transfer of data from the app to the database
   •  Automatic generation of customer-specific adaptable reports

GIS-based software for the monitoring of hydropower plants

The added value of our GIS-based software SMOHS Supervisor can be explained as follows:
   •  Creation of a central, georeferenced database for the management of

       hydropower plants
   •  Optimisation of the operation of the plants and increase of safety

   •  Digitalization and georeferencing of all plant components and

       infrastructures
   •  Linking of informations, plans, documents etc.
   •  Mapping of hazard potentials, potential damage events and

       damage susceptibilities
   •  Assessment of the specific risk
   •  Intuitive query of information
   •  Link with information from inspections and maintenance
   •  Documentation of operational activities and decisions (civil- and

       criminal law relevance)
   •  Possible renegotiation insurance policy
   •  Fast and intuitive query of important telephone numbers,

       e-mail-addresses, etc.
   •  Common language in communication between operating companies and

       stakeholders (e.g. civil protection) via WebGIS platform.
