Drones in Action

Together with the external partner, the company Austro Drones Lorünser tests the inspection of substations with drones. This service will be offered to the operators of substations. The drones fly over the substations and are equipped with a thermal camera. This is an easy and quick way to detect if there are any problems with “hot spots” at the substation. If for example a part is detected, that has a higher surface temperature than the tolerance value allows, this component will be further inspected on the ground.

Although different materials are applied at the substation, the inspection in the air is efficient and reasonable, because afterwards every temperature can be analyzed. Below you see a video of such a test-flight over the substation of the Vorarlberger Illwerke and vkw in Bregenz. Here no “hot spot” was detected.
