Automating and Digitalizing AllgäuNetz’s Inspection Program to Virtual Inspections
AllgäuNetz provides electricity to over 140,000 customers. As part of their strategy to integrate more renewables and expand their intelligent networks, they have partnered with eSmart Systems to transition their current manual infrastructure inspection to virtual inspections to significantly improve their overall inspection process.
Enhanced personnel safety
Automated grid inspection
Improved inspection efficiency
Virtual Inspection Program
eSmart Systems will manage the full end-to-end inspection program providing AllgäuNetz with actionable insights into their grid to proactively manage and plan grid maintenance and investments.
Project at a glance:
- Image captured by drones and automated flight patterns
- Virtual inspection supported by Collaborative-AI
- Inspection results visible within Grid Vision® providing a holistic view of the health of the grid through image based data
We were able to confirm eSmart Systems performance in comparison to competitors. They delivered high-quality inspection results and gained insights as well as the price-performance ratio, convinced us to award the contract for inspecting our entire high-voltage network to eSmart Systems.
This program supports our strategy and will increase the efficient and security of our critical infrastructure operations.
