ASSET MANAGEMENT FOR ELECTRICITY SUBSTATIONS
What can you achieve with UAV Surveying
There are a number of reasons why land surveyors are turning to drone technology for their surveying needs. First and foremost UAVs can vastly reduce the time spent collecting accurate data over large distances. By acquiring faster data from the sky, drones allow you to gather millions of data points in one brief flight.
Survey-grade drones can save even more time. Our equipment are capable of receiving X, Y, Z data accurate to within 3 cm (1.2 in). By speeding up and simplifying the data collection process, the time you used to spend on data and information gathering can be better spent on analysing and strategic planning.
By using UAVs we turn a job that take weeks to complete into a one that is finished in just a few days. Another benefit is the decreased exposure of staff to dangerous environments. An aerial survey means less time spent on the ground, minimising the risks to surveying teams measuring sites such as mines, unstable slopes and transport routes.
CLOUD BASED VISUAL ASSET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Drone4Canada Substation is a cloud based visual asset management system for full inspection, maintenance and repair of all assets, components and parts at a substation.
INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
Drone4Canada Substation allows for creation of work orders to conduct inspection or maintenance on all assets at a substation.
A part identified as defective during inspection raises a fault log which can be searched on the Drone4Canada substation system.
A repair work order can be generated which uses the image of the deteriorated part, acquired in previous inspection as evidence of the fault.
When a repair is completed, a new image of the improved part condition is taken and is updated on Drone4Canada Substation along with a new condition rating.
