The energy industry is evolving rapidly, and it requires agile, innovative technology that can keep pace. That’s where drones come in. Capable of supporting various applications, providing highly accurate data and reducing risk and “busy work” for employees, drones have become a widespread tool for energy companies around the world. Today, they’re used widely in the solar, wind, oil & gas, power and nuclear sectors.
EASIER PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Did you know a solar farm inspection by a drone costs up to 46% less than a manual inspection?
Drones make site inspection easier and more efficient, while also facilitating easier planning and development. Since wind farms require maintenance and inspection on a regular basis, drones are an efficient tool to evaluate the quality and efficiency of the farm. Drones are also excellent at capturing accurate, detailed data facilities need to adapt and pivot. Finally, drones can reduce turbine downtime, man-hours, and maintenance checks by more than 75%.
Unmanned drone inspections have become the go-to for difficult parts of wind turbine to get Hi-Res Images.
These aircraft help promote safety and reduce expense.
Power lines typically required climbers for inspection. Today, drones can do the hard work, leaving climbers on the ground, increasing safety, and producing more detailed, accurate results.
Unmanned drone inspections have become the go-to for many nuclear facilities. These drones help promote safety and reduce expense.
