Utilizing our state of the art drone in conjunction with FLIR thermal imaging, we can provide these services with virtually no safety risk to workers.
Substations / Transmission Lines
With our effective drone practice, we can maintain adequate limits of approach to high voltage transmission lines and associated equipment while providing an up close and personal inspection of insulators and electrical connections. The use of the drone allows for inspection of equipment from all angles on any terrain.
With our FLIR thermal imager and versatile drone it is easy to locate failed cells within panels due to the large surface area that the drone can view from above. Implementing drone use to a regularly scheduled maintenance program of solar panels will reduce downtime and improve the operation of the facility.
