|Innovative Use of a Laser Tracker Measurement System
in Hydro Turbine and Generator Refurbishment
Manitoba Hydro investigated three-dimensional measurement systems before settling on a laser tracker measurement system. The
accuracy, repeatability, and the time required to take measurements with the laser tracker system were proven to be superior to
Use of a laser tracker reduced outage time by an estimated 2 to 3 weeks per unit overhaul and allowed the construction team to
work more effectively and produce a better result. The laser tracker was so effective that it was used for significantly more applications
than originally anticipated....
