Niricson allows asset owners to inspect their structures more frequently providing them with the actionable insight they need to make maintenance decisions. This prevents assets from deteriorating to the point where catastrophic failures may occur resulting in expensive and environmentally impactful repair work as shown by Figure 1.
Figure 1. Example of asset deterioration curve (Roads)
Example: Oroville Spillway Repair
117,332 tonnes of cement was used to repair the spillway
1 tonne of cement produces 1 tonne of CO2
~ 117,332 tonnes of CO2 was emitted as a result of the repair
That is equal to the CO2 emitted by almost 20,000 cars per year
Prevention of failures = Prevention of CO2 emissions
