Keep your workforce out of harm’s way by performing remote visual inspections, eliminating entry in confined spaces, and avoiding dose exposures.
Avoid installing scaffolding or using rope access, perform faster inspections, and involve fewer people during the inspection process.
Take a deep dive into use cases and get insights from the field. Hear our customers in the power generation industry share their best practices and success stories about indoor drone inspections.
In this webinar, we’ll hear from a leader at Exelon Clearsight working on the cutting edge of drone use in Power Generation. Our invited speaker will cover typical drone use cases, drawing from first-hand experience using drones in the field. He'll also cover the benefits of using drones in inspection scenarios, including improved safety and ROI.

Having supplied the Elios and trained a number of nuclear staff to fly this technology, we would agree it has many benefits. Although there are some areas you would not use this or any other rotary wing aircraft due to rotor wash, but for most restricted or no man access situations it delivers and has the potential to save hundreds of thousands when compared to conventional methods.

Electricity availability is a given to our society. We take its provision for granted and our productivity gets paralyzed when downtimes happen. Power Generation professionals are constantly acting to preserve the level of production to make sure the grid is always on. By choosing Elios, power plant maintenance teams are able to regularly and thoroughly assess the integrity of their assets, helping reduce unplanned downtimes by rapidly collecting visual data to make educated decisions and get things fixed as quickly as possible.
