Our UAV Services continue to develop for Electrix

February 2017

In November 2016, Electrix were approached by Powercor Australia to inspect a large feeder for Pacific Hydro which involved ground based and aerial inspection of a 66kv feeder linked to the Portland 3 Capes Wind Farm in Victoria. The wind farm is situated across a large area that includes Cape Bridgewater, Cape Nelson and Cape Sir William Grant. Five hundred sites were inspected with twenty five maintenance items identified for defect rectification. Our UAV has been fully utilised for the past six months and due to the increased demand and interest in aerial surveillance we are investigating newer units to add to our fleet with the intention to train additional pilots.
