The real value of drone inspections is the ability to turn the gathered data into action. There are plenty of drone service providers, but most do not have the required structural expertise to provide a comprehensive view of an asset. That’s why accurate, experienced interpretation of the data is just as important as the technology for the overall quality of the inspection.
Safety is one of the top concerns for utility companies, as the consequences of an unanticipated structural failure on a transmission line can be severe. That’s why it’s important to partner with knowledgeable and experienced professionals for infrastructure inspections, repairs, and replacements.
