The ENTEL project is designed to support energy network operators (electricity, gas, solar and wind) in the planning, construction, and operation of their infrastructure. It uses AI processing of Earth Observation (EO) and geospatial data to provide up-to-date information on key features, construction progress, and man-made activities that may impact the infrastructure. The service helps improve operational efficiency, reduce the risk of failures and damages, and achieve compliance with national regulations. It provides updated information on the right of way for maintenance activities, risk reduction, and regulatory compliance.
The service is mainly based on satellite EO data and supports three main lifecycle stages: the identification and selection of optimal route for a new infrastruture during the planning, the analysis of the progresses of the construction activities during the construction of a new site/line, and the monitoring and control of interferences by human activitites that may damage and compromise the operational functionality of an operating station/line.
Currently, ENTEL focuses on energy infrastructures by a complete set of solutions designed to support the logic of the energy corporates' departments, but it has the full potential to be extended to mobility and communication networks in the near future.
