The revolution of power plant inspection drones

 

Power plant assets like boilers, pipes, and chimneys are under constant stress and need to be regularly inspected to avoid unwanted downtime. Inspections however often take place in confined and hard-to-reach areas which can be dangerous and costly. The Elios 3 is a power plant inspection drone created to improve inspection safety and efficiency by up to 90%, saving the plant significant money and time. 

The Elios 3 drone is able to collect high-quality visual data thanks to its 4k camera and accurate UT measurements thanks to the UT payload. Advanced LiDAR technology also allows the drone to precisely localize all measurements within the asset's 3D model.

“I am no fan of big heights, and this drone helps me to work quickly and safely while minimizing how long I have to be up there. The drone ensures I can stay in the safety of the hub and be harnessed down without having to crawl into the turbine blades.”
