Faster, More Efficient, Safer – Drones as a Solution for Energy Suppliers
Energy supply and electricity, gas, and district heating network operators increasingly deploy drones for automated inspection and testing. The time and effort required to inspect over 2 million kilometers of power lines in Germany is a technical challenge. Drones are clearly at the forefront of remote maintenance. Be it for routine inspections, recording system numbers, detecting damage on masts, lines, or insulators, or identifying leaks by thermal photography.
