Traditional methods of powerline inspection, such as using a bucket truck or climbing the pole, are slow, dangerous, and expensive.
Powerline inspections are critical to the safety of employees and the public. Traditional methods of Power line Inspections and surveys are being continuously shown to be both time-consuming and ineffective in assessing the condition of Scotland’s power lines, owing to their large number.
Utilizing drones for powerline inspections is the solution to these problems. Drones are able to quickly and easily cover large areas, allowing for a more comprehensive inspection. Additionally, drones are much more cost-effective than traditional methods and pose far less risk to personnel. By using drones for powerline inspections, companies can save time and money while still ensuring the safety of their employees.
