Barossa Valley Powerline

Proposed Barossa Valley Powerline 
Electranet SA operates and manages the electricity transmission network throughout the State of South Australia.

Electranet SA engaged VizMAP Pty Ltd to create a geospatial Visualisation of the proposed Templers to Dorrien 132kV transmission line for the purpose of public consultation and internal Electranet SA discussions and planning.

During the route selection and environmental impact assessment phases of a transmission line project, one of the issues foremost in the minds of those responsible for selecting possible alignments is the visual impact of the proposed infrastructure. The method most widely used in the past for visualising a transmission line has been to pre-determine vantage points along a proposed alignment, and superimpose tower outlines and conductor catenaries on photos taken from these vantage points. 

In an attempt to meet community expectations of being able to get a clearer idea of what the structures and conductor catenaries of a new transmission line might look like, a digital model is required that will deliver continuous visualisation of the proposed alignment. 

Such a model also assists in locating the best alignment for the proposed line from a visual aspect by being able to continually view the alignment from any point in the general area of the line. The model also assists in the production of environmental impact reports.
