Aerial inspections of tower structures and power lines reduce corrective maintenance costs and improve asset life, while avoiding hazardous manhours. Detailed visual imagery captured by drones allows for easier, safer, and faster identification and analysis of structural defects, hotspots, and other anomalies.
Improve grid reliability and reduce expensive tower repairs with close-up inspection of high voltage transmission structures.
Improve SAIDI and SAIFI with detailed Thermal and Visual Inspections for distribution infrastructure.
Identify critical defects of energized equipment with visual and thermal scans.
Visual aerial inspection of trouble sites helps you prioritize tree-trimming.
Measure completed 50 miles of 69kV line inspections for customer AES. We captured both thermal and RGB imagery, delivering a higher level of detail compared to typical ground or helicopter patrols, while also avoiding the hazardous manhours involved with climbing or using buckets.
