FDH Infrastructure Services

Power

Aging transmission infrastructure creates challenges that would benefit from innovative solutions to ensure compliance, enable efficient reconductoring, address asset management needs, evaluate/prevent failures, resolve documentation issues, and develop unique modifications. FDH Infrastructure Services works with electric utilities to provide conditional assessments of critical infrastructure and, when needed, develop modifications to re-use existing foundation assets. Our nondestructive testing methods and proprietary data analysis techniques provide customers with the information they need to evaluate the integrity of their structures and foundations and to determine cost-effective strategies for extending their lifespans. In the wind energy industry, determining the current wind turbine foundation integrity for repowering, life extension, due diligence, QA/QC, forensic efforts, and/or repair support is frequently required. FDH provides higher accuracy, timelier turnaround, and reduced costs as compared to the alternatives of engineering evaluations and foundation coring.
