CNIguard produce a range of monitoring products to protect critical infrastructure such as gas, water and electric supply. Degraded power lines are a major cause of manhole incidents in New York City and can lead to significant disruption in the network supply. The consequences can be serious, as electrified manholes and exploding covers can injure or kill.
The developed manhole monitoring system delivers an early warning system by continually monitoring manhole events such as stray voltage, floods and gas leaks. This data is sent to a central hub and enables maintenance teams to rapidly respond to any incident.
biild’s risk mitigation process was critical to the product’s success. Through continual development, prototyping and test cycles we ensured the device was suitable for the harsh environments in which it would be used. This removed the device’s potential for failure when in the field, which was vital to CNi Guard.
