As one of the pioneers in its industry, SSEN Transmission – part of the SSE Group – has been utilizing drones and digital solutions since 2012.
At the end of last year, SSEN Transmission published its digital strategy, which outlined its commitment to safety, innovation, and environmentally friendly practices. Effective data collection and management are integral to the success of this strategy – and this is exactly where Cyberhawk comes into play.
Cyberhawk has revolutionized the way that utility companies, like SSEN Transmission, captures, stores, and manages integrity data. Cyberhawk delivers drone-based inspections across SSEN Transmission’s network in the North of Scotland, monitoring over 11,500 transmission towers and almost 150 substations, providing actionable insights via its cloud-based, IoT-enabled visualization platform, iHawk.
The adoption of iHawk has offered SSEN Transmission’s operational, project and asset teams unprecedented levels of access to multi-level data, allowing them to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the network, exposing integrity risks, and revealing opportunities for improvement. “iHawk’s innovative approach to data management is key to managing our network assets, central to how our operations team manage inspections, maintenance, safety, and compliance.”
