Thermal energy facilities employing autonomous drones are overcoming various challenges while reducing downtime and optimizing production and efficiency.


Thermal Power Plants

A thermal power plant is one of the riskiest possible industrial environments, with complex operation and maintenance, as well as safety and security challenges.

The stresses produced by extreme pressures and temperatures can result in catastrophic accidents with potentially massive social and environmental ripple effects.

To meet the challenges of cost effective yet efficient and accurate monitoring of thermoelectric power plants, a new, more innovative generation of drones has emerged.
