Power Line Inspection
1 Periodical inspection of electric-power transmission lines is necessary for the energy sector as well as for society in general. By doing so, problems due to a wide variety of reasons may be detected and solved. Some of these include: vegetation growing on the lines, structural invasion of new buildings, breakage of the lines, cable corrosion, damage due to lightning or bird nesting and multiple damage simply due to ageing. Thus, the reliability of the electrical system is ensured at all levels.
2 The most cutting-edge technological trend for the surveillance of electric-power transmission lines is based on the use of EKOFASTBA‘s unmanned aerial vehicles, which integrates the advantages and overcomes the drawbacks of traditional surveillance methods (eye inspection by staff on elevating work platforms, inspections from piloted helicopters, etc.). It is a solution which has a significant lower cost. It is fast, efficient and safe, as well as flexible and adaptable to any situation and power line configuration.
3 Furthermore, the solution is sustainable in time. Also, it can always be updated by the installation of new image-acquisition equipment depending on new requirements, the increase of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles fleet in case of time constraints, the substitution of these vehicles with other types with a higher range and scope if specific geographic demands apply, etc. Therefore, we offer you an ideal solution to all your needs in terms of surveillance and inspection of power transmission lines and pylons.
