How Hepta’s power line inspection platform can detect 10000+ different defects

There are more than 60 million kilometres of power lines in the world and thousands of distribution and transmission network operators who have to maintain and service those lines. It is not an easy task, nor one where the experiences would be similar to all parties. While the operating logic and goals are shared by all operators, the challenges differ.

Digital twin in utilities

Digital twin technology in utilities helps to solve future trouble spots and hazards today. From predicting asset breakdowns to vegetation analysis, digital twins are changing the utilities operational landscape.

Hepta conducts tests with an E.DIS Group subsidiary in Germany

E.DIS Netz, a subsidiary of one the largest energy service providers in Germany, the E.DIS Group, recently finished testing novel drone-based inspection solutions in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
