UAV Inspection

AdMeS undertakes inspection services of critical infrastructure using specialized equipment to cover any possible requirements a Client may request. Its well trained and certified personnel with a multi-copter UAV, a dual sensor (optical – thermal camera), a portable handheld thermal camera and many other modern sensors and instruments can scan, monitor and inspect infrastructure like Windfarms, Solar Panels, Funnels and Industry Facilities on land, at a height above sea level and underwater. The results of this inspection lead to data acquisition and analysis, which are drafted in a Technical Report. This Report is given to the Client including the monitoring conditions, the identified faults, damages and cracks on the infrastructure, as well as suggestions to resolve any problems occurring.

Drones are a powerful tool for solar panel inspections, collecting data more than 50 times faster than manual methods and improving safety by avoiding hazardous man – hours. Increasing efficiency is crucial when it comes to inspecting solar panels due to weather conditions. As a result, there are often a few hours in the day when maintenance can be carried out. Therefore, the data will be captured quickly with an increasing quantity and quality.

UAVs featuring thermal imaging payloads allow operators to perform a full solar operation in a matter of hours, identifying manufacturing defects, cracks, faulty inter-connectors, defective bypass diodes and temporary shadowing.

After all, drones are a far more effective solution than traditional, hand-held manual techniques – helping inspections firms increase efficiency, capture incredibly accurate data and enhance safety.

Drones are a powerful tool for solar panel inspections, as they have major advantages compare to manual methods:

  • Increase efficiency: Drones collect data more than 50x faster than manual methods. Solar farms are typically very large installations, so a drone equipped with an appropriate thermal camera can scan the site for defects much faster than using a thermal camera on the ground.
  • Get better quantity & quality information: Efficiently identify issues manual processes might miss.
  • Avoid hazardous man-hours: Conduct surveys and inspections without being exposed to potential danger.
  • Reduce costs: Not only in inspection, but maintenance, equipment and potential shut downs.
  • Store, track & distribute data: Manage data with a secure portal and convenient reporting.

Hail, snow, lighting, rain, salt and dust are just some of the things wind turbine components must endure. To deal with these, AdMeS uses drone inspection, which is cost – effective and efficient, as it gives both visual and thermal images as a result.

This type of inspection provides preventive maintenance planning, while the drone captures the data and starts the inspection of the rotor blade, whether it is for a full inspection or specific areas of the rotor blade, during an on – site evaluation of the state of the wind turbine.

Furthermore, the company’s personnel can access to otherwise inaccessible and dangerous to reach areas with fewer workplace accidents. After all, UAVs detect assembly errors and unseen faults and reduces expenses.

AdMeS using drone inspection for wind turbines provides benefits such as:

  • Safe working environment
  • Reduced downtime
  • Access to otherwise inaccessible areas
  • Dynamic surveing
  • Preventive maintenance planning
  • Cost savings

Above all, its personnel locate defects, detect assembly errors and achieve structural preservation.

UAVs allow for the prompt, safe and efficient inspection of critical infrastructure – from the electric power system, to the oil gas sector, to transportation and telecommunications.

AdMeS is frequently uses drones to inspect anomalies and help improve overall safety, because of their potentials for increased efficiency, cost reductions and worker safety.

In many instances, visual data is collected and then reviewed in detail later by the inspector, reducing risk and saving money from downtime and the need to build temporary structures, as we have better records.

UAVs allow for the prompt, safe and efficient inspection of critical infrastructure – from the electric power system, to the oil gas sector, to transportation and telecommunications. Their primary benefits are:

  • Reduced risk: Inspector no longer has to be put into potentially dangerous situations.
  • Cost savings: temporary structures, downtime, liability insurance.
  • Reduced processing time of inspection.
  • Better records: Drone data represents a meticulous record of the condition of an asset over time. By archiving visual data, companies have a digital footprint of the asset’s life history that can be accessed at any time.
