How Can Energy Inspection Operations Benefit From Drones?

Technological advances in drones have enhanced energy companies’ ability to utilize these aircraft in gathering crucial information in asset inspections. Operators can perform quicker and more accurate inspections thanks to drone functionality such as autonomous flight modes, sense and avoid, and other intelligent functionality, combined with highly sensitive and accurate imaging technology. Specialized technology like Real-Time Kinematics systems, in addition to GPS technology, enable drones to hover around power lines and pylons reliably. Inspectors can inspect minute details safely through Zoom cameras that allow up to 30x optical zoom. The availability of dual mount visual and thermal imaging cameras allows operators to identify and locate faults or anomalies in real-time or capture images or HD videos through long-range transmission capabilities. These are only a few of the many features that drones add to inspection operations' safety, reliability, and effectiveness; making these aircraft an indispensable asset for the energy industry.

Additional Drone Applications for Energy Inspection

Asset inspection via drones is quickly becoming the industry standard for the energy sector, and for good reason. Drones are already crucial in monitoring solar and wind farms, powerlines, utility towers, and oil and gas pipelines. These inspections are critical for identifying potential damage or defects, allowing energy companies to develop proactive early-stage solutions while enjoying increased safety and efficiency. Utilizing drones for inspections offers many advantages to traditional methods, including reduced costs, improved safety, time savings, and high-quality data that may not be attainable through other methods. DSLRPros offers several drone packages specifically tailored for Energy Inspection use cases.

For instance, the DSLRPros Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced Industrial Inspection Package gives your inspection team everything needed for daily operational efficiency. Assembled around DJI’s Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, this industrial inspection package comes with the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced RTK Module. This accessory allows operators to achieve the centimeter-level accuracy needed for complex inspection operations. This module also enables pilots to create up to 240 waypoints for automated, detailed inspection missions in the most challenging environments.

The Matrice 300 RTK Energy & Inspection Package is among DSLRPros’ top-of-the-line offerings. The Matrice 300 RTK takes inspiration from modern aviation systems and offers up to 55 minutes of flight time, advanced AI capabilities, 6 Directional Sensing & Positioning, and more. The M300 RTK sets a whole new standard for drones by combining intelligence with high-performance and unrivaled reliability. Operators can mount up to 3 payloads simultaneously, with a maximum payload capacity of 2.7 kg. In addition, this aircraft is also compatible with advanced payloads such as the DJI H20T, which provides for dual thermal and visual imaging, and the Flir Vue TZ20, a dual-thermal camera with 20x thermal zoom capability.

These are only a few of the features that make the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced Industrial Inspection Package and the Matrice 300 RTK Energy & Inspection Packages great solutions for your energy inspection needs.
