Drones are suitable for monitoring switchgear. This makes it relatively quick and easy to identify whether there are any “hotspot” problems in a switchgear system. In future, switchgear operators will be able to benefit from this service provided by Lorünser Austria..
Lorünser Austria has tested this jointly with its external Austrian partner Austro Drones. Since a wide variety of materials are used in a substation, aerial inspection is particularly useful and efficient.
