    Getting started with digital twins: Lessons from the southern hemisphere’s largest pumped-hydro project

    Snowy 2.0 is an Australian pumped-hydro mega project that will underpin thousands of megawatts of renewable energy through its 2,000MW of capacity to pump, store and generate electricity. The project is a major expansion of the original Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme constructed more than 70 years ago. While the setting is the same, the tools used throughout the planning, design and future operation and maintenance stages of the project and asset lifecycle are very different.

    Snowy 2.0 understands the value of digital engineering – the ability to build assets first virtually and then physically – providing valuable insights, creating efficiencies and delivering savings across every project phase. Discover how GIS integration is enabling the reuse of BIM and drone imagery for virtual tours, driving efficiency and collaboration, while planned IoT integration will provide living twin capability to sense and simulate scenarios.

    Panel: Spatial digital twins – Forging digital partnerships to support sustainable cities and communities

    Spatial digital twin proof-of-concepts are being rolled out in APAC cities. The developers imagine a series of connected urban digital twins sharing data to boost infrastructure performance on issues including climate change. Our panel gives us an insight on how the system will work and will speculate on the impact of 5G.

    Panellists include:
    Damien Cutcliffe Director of Business Development and Growth, Digital, WSP
    Rory Brown Director, Smart Places Programs, NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment
    Mark Chapman Executive - Integrated Enterprise Products, Telstra
    Brett Dixon Infrastructure Group Lead - Asia Pacific, Esri
