Majority of the power plants in the United States are still powered by coal and natural gas, making them critical infrastructure in the U.S. As they’re the foundation of revenue for most power generation companies, it is important to have these assets up and running as much as possible. Companies inspect the inside of these structures to look for damage to the tubes or wear & tear on the cyclones. In the past, this has been performed with a rope access, a cable buggy, or building scaffolding inside the structure.
Our Drone Solution
The lead Boiler Inspector at one of the top U.S. power companies recently told Interactive Aerial “it took 60-man hours to get the exact same picture your drone took ten minutes to get.” Their team traditionally inspected the burners on half the boiler, our team flew our drone to get the second half of the boiler inspected, then we compared data. This company purchased multiple drones and is now reducing its scaffolding requirements in lieu of robotic inspections.
Why waste days of extra down time to prepare and execute traditional inspection methods? Our drone can inspect these steel enclosed structures in a matter of minutes, rather than days. Whether it is verifying a few specific areas of repair from previous outages or visually checking the entire boiler for flat spots on the tubes, the Legacy One should be the first tool chosen when beginning an outage. Let our drone be the first object to make entry inside the boiler when it comes offline. It can be the robotic “birds-eye-view” to tell your company exactly what needs to be ordered during your outage.
