Thanks to the use of UAS and Artificial Intelligence we can reach the maximum performance
of the facilities. We do a preventive work to avoid glitches and act in advance.
Electrical lines and supports
Current regulations require a quarterly review, making it necessary to inspect energy distribution and transmission networks.
So far, this has been done by high-cost aerial methods, such as helicopters. Using drones is a more efficient and economical alternative, since images of up to 20 mpx and HD and 4K videos can be obtained. Allowing a good analysis of the situation and maintaining control of it.
The platforms used for this type of inspections can manage heavy cameras with the necessary sensors for a more specialized work, GNSS RTK systems for centimeter accuracy.
An example is the thermographic camera, which detects hot spots on elements.
All satellite systems and inertial measurement units (IMU) generate several redundant elements to ensure a flight with absolute reliability and safety at all times.
The technical team is composed of highly qualified and experienced pilots with the necessary training required to work with live elements.
Wind turbines have wear problems due to the climatic conditions to which they are exposed and their constant operation.
Damage or wear is difficult to detect using traditional methods, as it entails a significant risk to the safety of operators. Sometimes they have to climb down the blades or use lifting platforms, involving a high expenditure of time and effort.
Wind turbine inspections can be performed more efficiently by identifying fissures, cracks or other structural stress defects that may need to be repaired. This reduces downtime and optimizes costs.
The use of drones for this purpose leads to a significant improvement over existing methods.
UAS have the ability to inspect large areas of PV farms efficiently, without having to stop operation, rather than having to be carried out by ground personnel individually on foot.
This allows defective panels or cells to be quickly isolated, repaired or replaced, and actions can be taken to maintain energy production at optimal levels.
Today, thanks to drone thermographic equipment, we are able to see temperature anomalies captured in a thermal image.
Once the flights have been carried out and the images have been obtained, individualized technical reports are generated.
In this way, maintenance teams can gain first-hand knowledge of the problem areas in a precise manner, which significantly increases their efficiency and productivity.
The great versatility of these aerial tools allows industrial maintenance inspections to be carried out more efficiently. In contrast to traditional methods, which require the use of cranes, other tools and operators, and the use of drones, these tools can be used to carry out inspections in a more efficient way.
With drones it is possible to optimize time and available resources, reducing costs and detecting possible defects in the installations.
