Power plant Erlangen

To ensure the frictionless installation of a new boiler in the existing structure, the combined cycle power plant was surveyed using a 3D laser-scanner. The 3D pointcloud obtained served as the basis for a collision analysis between the as-built and the CAD model of the new boiler.
