The need to ensure good operation and reliability in the fields of energy, telecommunications and water supply, requires constant checks and inspections of the infrastructures and relevant equipment.
The use of Drone ‘’Unmanned Aerial Vehicle/Systems (UAV/UAS)’’ lays new foundations by substantially increasing the speed and accuracy of the monitoring, significantly reducing the cost and risk of accident during the inspection.
This is achieved with the use of appropriate equipment that can carry RGB, infrared and thermal cameras with Radiometric Measurement, offering services of inspection within the framework of maintenance and monitoring of Photovoltaic Power Stations, Wind Farms, the Overhead Distribution Network and Substations of ADMIE and HEDNO, as well as surface pipeline networks and the gas installations of DEPA for possible leaks via special sensors.
The recording of accidents such as damages due to natural phenomena can be achieved quickly, providing the state with the opportunity to intervene at the points that demand immediate attention, having full knowledge of the size of the incident.
Insurance companies may also see significant benefits, since the assessors opinion is given with absolute precision, speed and substantially reduced cost.
