Drone Media Imaging were delighted to be contracted to carry out a drone thermal inspection of a large solar farm in the South West of England. Thermal inspection of solar farms by drone can be an extremely cost effective way of assessing production efficiency.
The previous inspection of this large multi field solar farm had been at ground level and an engineer on foot had spent a week with a hand held inspection device. Drone inspection is quite different and all of the areas were covered in a short series of flights in the course of a single day. The information gathered is then presented to the clients as thermal imagery overlaid on a standard photographic area map along with a comprehensive fault report. This provides an extremely accurate basis for the clients to assess the impact of the faults on the efficient operation of their farm and deploy a targeted maintenance team equipped with everything they need to carry out repairs extremely effectively. This minimises the cost of inspection and repair and allows the solar farm operator to ensure that their investment is returning their investment at the maximum level.
