Indoor drones in Power Generation

Always on!

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 plants maintenance teams are able to regularly and thoroughly assess the integrity of their assets, preventing downtimes, or reducing them by rapidly collecting visual data to make educated decisions and get things fixed.

What our customers say about Elios

Save Costs

Save Costs

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.
