Using a drone for inspection is safer (no working at height or close to live equipment), quicker (up to four times faster than traditional methods) and lower cost. Complex areas can be accessed more easily, with minimum disruption to the surrounding environment.
Inspection reports show highly detailed, close visual imagery from which repair and maintenance decisions can be made. Reports can be provided on a bar-by-bar basis.
iHawk Powerline allows asset owners to view their entire asset portfolio at a glance, via a secure log-in to a cloud-based server. From there, inspection data can be viewed across all assets or on a tower-by-tower basis. Defect status is highlighted using a traffic light colour coding system, with detailed photographic evidence available to support decision-making.
Maintenance work orders can be pushed direct to lines persons via tablet apps used in the field. Once completed, photographic evidence can be uploaded back into iHawk for manager approval.
