Last week Digital Engineering’s UK office team had the experience of a lifetime, taking a hot air balloon flight over our home city of Bristol

The trip was to celebrate the successful conclusion of our innovative Overhead Line Asset Health project, working with the National Grid’s innovation team to improve how they classify Overhand Line spans in terms of deterioration due to environmental exposure.

We have recently received feedback that the project exceeded the customers’ expectations and delivered results on time and on budget. The team fully deserved a reward for their hard work and commitment, and what better way to show our appreciation that one of Bristol’s most iconic experiences with Bristol Balloons

It was an incredible experience, floating over the city taking in breathtaking views across the area and all the way over to Wales in the hazy distance.  We lifted off from the Long Ashton estate and drifted along vaguely following the course of the Avon river towards Bath, finally landing in a friendly farmer’s field near Upton Cheyney where after stowing the balloon away we enjoyed a glass of champagne while the sun went down.
