Structural Engineering

Osmose brings cutting-edge pole technology and a 50-year proven track record in pole engineering, pole restoration and pole strength upgrading.

Wood Pole Engineering

The Osmose pole restoration systems are designed to restore poles weakened by decay or other damage so they exceed minimum structural requirements. Osmose systems restore the required strength of a pole at groundline, usually for less than 20% of the cost of pole replacement and can upgrade pole capacity by between 30% to 40% dependent on species, for approximately 30% of the cost of pole replacement.

The most exciting contribution of the Osmose is the introduction of the Osmose banding method of fixing reinforcement to poles. Not only does this banding method have over 40 years of proven track record, but the radial force effect from banding provides a positive and enhancing effect on the timber pole as opposed to the current destructive convention of bolting reinforcing to poles.

Advanced Structural Resiliency Study

Osmose engineers utilize OsmoVision®, a suite of cutting-edge hardware and software, to document power grid vulnerabilities and strengths and provide turnkey engineering analyses. OsmoVision utilizes a combination of proprietary LiDAR point cloud classification and imagery recognition tools to generate an accurate digital twin of utility structures.
