Power Transmission & Distribution Lines 

Over the years, with the increasing demand for power, an extensive network of power transmission lines and towers has been developed across the globe.

Though with expansion the transmission grids have become complex as these grids play a vital role in evacuating the power generated at various power generating plants and distributing it further, it is imperative that transmission infrastructures perform robustly throughout their operational life cycle. This can only be attained if all the components of these grids are monitored regularly. 

In order to ensure un-interrupted power supply by preventing inadvertent power failures and thereby reducing outage regular inspections of this network is essential.


The general practice prevalent in the power utilities is to perform need based manual inspection. Apart from structurally built steel lattice towers, transmission grid consists of several hundred kilometers of overhead power lines which generally pass through topographically complex locations. In the absence of well planned periodical maintenance routines and predictive maintenance techniques, the network becomes error prone. This not only makes the prevalent manual inspections tedious, time consuming and erroneous but also results in frequent power failures.

      We Provide

      We propose to adopt an airborne survey of the whole corridor of transmission network using a Drone (UAV) equipped with an HD Image Scanner and Thermal IR Camera for fast and cost-effective and accurate inspection. 

      Our Drones carry out aerial inspection of all power lines in a feeder including towers. Drone identifies all vulnerable and critical locations in the network including growth of vegetation, in no time. We integrate survey and mapping with GIS to update all important locations of the network. Our solutions, increases the reliability of power supply with remarkable reduction in the cost of manpower involved in the inspections. 

      Why We?

      • Our service team efficiently captures data without switching off the distribution network

      • Our team autonomously captures data of the network using Drones with very little manual intervention

      • Our recommendations identifying risk-prone assets of the network along with exact locations, help utilities reducing their action time required for maintenance, more accurately than manual methods 


      • HD Images and Video Documentation of each pole, distribution transformer and other critical objects in the network

      • HD Images of the line hardware with an excel sheet showing per pole hardware details like insulators, guy wires, cross arms, jumpers etc.

      • Inspection report on various irregularities in the network including those at line crossings and abnormal pole angles

      • Inspection report highlighting vegetation encroachment in the network including creepers on poles

      • Verification of regulating ground clearances of various conductors at roads/highways and at line crossings

      • Pole to pole distances, for all poles present in the network 

      • Drawing highlighting pole attributes, importable to GIS software

      • Mapping and overlaying of KMLs in GIS
