The energy & utility industries (electric, gas, solar, water and wind utilities) are in the middle of rapid technological advancements with IoT & AI, and now with UAVs as well. Drone inspections are helping cut business risk by improving worker safety and facilitating inspections that would traditionally be quite dangerous. For example, traditional inspection methods of asking a maintenance tech to climb wind turbines or cell towers to assess damage can now easily be done safely by deploying a drone to complete comprehensive aerial inspections. The deployment of aerial drone infrared inspection technology can also help streamline this process and even find anomalies that are not discoverable with normal aerial imagery for powerline inspections, solar PV inspections, wind turbine inspections, and various other use cases.
Outside of keeping employees safe, UAVs are helping cut operation and maintenance costs. Surveying miles of pipeline or assessing large solar farms can take days or weeks by ground, but now aerial data allows businesses to efficiently locate issues and maintain documentation of their assets’ condition. Outside of just saving time in identifying issues, utilizing this data allows companies to provide actionable intelligence to their field team to also increase the efficiency of resolving these issues. UAVs are even helping revolutionize site selection by producing high-quality topographical maps and contour models that can help construction managers with pre-construction operations and site planning.
