CONDITIONS OF UTILITIES

Electric utility and power lines inspection using drones has become the obvious solution to the dangerous, expensive and time-consuming task of ensuring that the nation’s electrical infrastructure meets Government and industry standards. Depending on the client’s needs, transmission line and power line inspection requirements, Gamayun Media uses high-resolution digital cameras, ultraviolet and/or infrared sensors to detect and document such concerns as:

  • Cracked, broken or missing cross arms
  • Cracked, broken or missing insulators
  • Poles or support structure deterioration or deformation
  • Loose or missing hardware
  • Broken or missing ground wires
  • Broken or missing anchors, anchor rods or guys
  • And other concerns, such as vegetation encroachment, bird nests or fire damage

All points of interest are videoed, photographed and precisely mapped with GPS coordinates. Individual structures or entire facilities and corridors can be 3D modeled.

RIGHT OF WAY INSPECTION

Power line or electric transmission line right of way inspection for vegetation overgrowth and other types of encroachment is accomplished via an flight over using high-resolution digital cameras and/or LiDAR for digital orthophotography for production of a 3D model of the right of way corridor.

THE GAMAYUN MEDIA ADVANTAGE

The typical aerial power line or electric transmission line inspection involves a relatively fast and high (and expensive and dangerous) over-flight with either an airplane or a helicopter. That’s how it’s been done for decades, and the resultant inspection can be fairly accurate and fairly thorough. But, with the inherent risks and the potential liability in the event of failure of the line, is a “fairly” good inspection good enough – especially when there is a better method? Using a small, light aircraft designed for low-flying (3 – 150 metres. above ground level), and slow-moving (0 – 80 kmh) specifically configured for precise, in depth inspection of electric utility facilities, power lines, electric transmission lines and right of way corridors, Gamayun Media can provide your company with the security of knowing that your interests have been thoroughly, completely and accurately inspected.
