AGA Operations Conference preventing damages presentation


Yardley, PA – June 19th, 2018

Opvantek along with partners RECONN- a USIC company and National Grid will present “Preventing Damages Before They Happen” at the 2018 AGA Operations Conference and Spring Committee meeting in Washington DC.  The presentation will be held at 1:30pm on Wednesday June 27th.

The discussion will focus on:

  • How the Optimain xDR engine works and measured engine results.
  • How RECONN uses the results and what you can do to prevent damages.
  • National Grid’s measured results and perceptions of the program (lessons learned, etc).

National Grid and RECONN began using a ticket risk model (Optimain xDR) to prioritize daily activities by field damage prevention staff in January 2017. The presentation will focus on lessons learned and actual results from that program in terms of reduction in total damages and damages per 1000 locate requests.

Visit us in Washington DC from June 25th to June 28th at the AGA Operations meeting or contact Opvantek to learn more.
