Drone Powerline Inspections

The requirement for powerline inspections has been revolutionised with the use of drones. The main benefit is that the work can be done at a fraction of the cost of using traditional methods.

Want to learn more about our services?

The work has historically been done by helicopters, or ladders and cherry pickers, but drones are now able to take over from helicopters in providing detailed information about the condition of overhead power cables.

All of our pilots are trained to the highest standards which makes us almost unique in our industry. They are both Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) registered and Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) qualified. We are also very experienced pilots, and all the drones we use are of the highest standard or state of the art.

Main advantages of using a drone for powerline inspections:

  • Huge time and cost reductions compared to human intervention and helicopters
  • Planning and preparation time is reduced significantly
  • A far safer method for powerline inspection compared to traditional methods

The drone that we use for our powerline inspections, is the DJI Matrice 210 V2 RTK. This drone has a number of features which make it ideally suited for this work.

Principally, it provides very accurate 3D positioning, and maintains stability really well so pilots can get close to the powerlines without the worry of drift. It is also highly durable and has a built-in obstacle avoidance system and, from a security perspective, is not easily hacked providing peace of mind.
