Business Achievement Awards honor geophysical data acquisition for Kitty Hawk Offshore Wind Energy Area for Avangrid International, for a utility risk predictive analysis solution, and for INSITE, a cloud based geospatial data management platform.
Hollywood, Fla.,– March 24, 2022 – NV5 Geospatial, North America’s largest geospatial data firm, today announced it has been awarded three 2021 Business Achievement Awards from Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) and Climate Change Journal (CCBJ).
NV5 Geospatial was awarded 2021 Business Achievement Awards for:
- New Practice: Geospatial Surveys. Geodynamics, an NV5 company and a sonar-based, deep-water geospatial specialist, was selected by EBJ for completing a nearshore geophysical survey to support development of the Kitty Hawk Offshore Wind Energy Area for Avingrid Renewables. The high-resolution hydrospatial survey included vessel-based collection of multibeam for the seafloor topography, sub-bottom profiles for the geological composition of layers below the seafloor, and marine magnetometer to identify submerged obstructions. The acquired data was integrated in a comprehensive GIS to support project engineers as they guide the final cable routing prior to construction.
- Information Technology: INSITE, a cloud-based geospatial data management and visualization platform capable of viewing vast and diverse amounts of spatial data, was recognized by EBJ. INSITE has been architected from the ground up to provide access to myriad spatial data in many formats. The platform provides unique perspectives and data fusions which broaden users’ understanding of the environment around them.
- Project Merit: Utility Risk Analysis. NV5 Geospatial’s utility analytics team was recognized by CCBJ for applying the predictive power of four key metrics to assign a risk score to trees adjacent to transmission lines. The team analyzed three years of outage data and identified four key metrics related to adjacent trees that had the highest predictive power. These metrics allow NV5 Geospatial to analyze millions of trees adjacent to transmission lines and assign a risk score. With this new data, utilities can take proactive steps to reduce or prevent outages, increase safety, mitigate risk, and protect the environment with speed and accuracy.
EBJ and CCBJ are two publications from Environmental Business International Inc., an independent business research company. The annual awards are administered by EBI, Inc. and its award selection committee.
