Member for Noosa Glen Elmes would like to advise residents in the Cooroy area that ENERGEX will be conducting a pilot project in their region week commencing 28 March 2016 for approximately three days.

“I am advised that this pilot project is related to the capture of data to create a 3D model of the network.  This will then provide information about the location of assets relative to the ground, structures, asset alignment and condition data.  ENERGEX will also be trialling inclusion of high resolution photography of pole tops in the Cooroy area which will be embedded in the 3D models and enable them to visually inspect the condition of assets remotely.

“ENERGEX will be mailing out an information flyer to the 1900 residences and business properties who will be affected by the fly over,” Glen Elmes said.

Glen Elmes said he didn’t want residents to become overly concerned and possibly confuse these operations with any other emergency or commercial flights.ENDS
