Analytics India Mag recently published a story about how IndiGrid used Tomorrow.io’s industry leading weather intelligence platform to manage and provide superior customer service during Cyclone Amphan, the largest cyclone to hit India in 20+ years.
By using Tomorrow.io, IndiGrid was able to understand in advance which of their hundreds of towers were at risk of damage. “Due to the lack of precise wind data, it is difficult for design engineers to investigate the failure modes of tower collapse events,” said Satish Talmale, COO of IndiGrid.
Once the team at IndiGrid knew where to focus, they were able to deploy vegetation management and maintenance crews to the select towers that were at risk, saving countless hours of confusing operational predictions and discussions. By pre-positioning crews, IndiGrid was able to see where the impact would be, mitigate damages, minimize outage time for their customers, and maximize operating revenues – Check out the full story here!
