Let us save you time and money, all while maintaining a watchful eye on your installed infrastructure
Deregulation and competition have changed the electrical-power industry business environment. The emphasis of utility companies has shifted to increasing the reliability of the power-delivery system while minimizing costs and maximizing the use of existing facilities. This new emphasis results in a reduction of capital spending on upgrades and new construction. Consequently, there is a need to effectively apply reduced budgets to minimize all expenses including inspection and maintenance cost.
Transmission line components are currently inspected & assessed utilizing field
personnel, both ground based and airborne. For many utilities, the use of drones is
not considered to be a viable alternative but is seen as futuristic. Technology
developments in the field of robotics and unmanned vehicles, can now be leveraged
to enable the development of an effective, automated-inspection system for
transmission line and tower monitoring applications.
