The Belgian company improves security and maintenance of infrastructure with use of drones. They are looking for commercial agents to represent locally their drone solutions for high voltage lines inspection in Europe, mainly in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands through a commercial agency agreement.
The Belgian company provides automated solutions to use industrial drones for aerial infrastructure inspections and power lines assets inspections. They are active in electricity distribution grids for high voltage power lines, blade, bridges and viaducts inspections. They mainly act on deep infrastructures inspections such as default detection, concrete crack detection, lack of painting and corrosion. The device, implementing an automated pilot, and its artificial intelligence (AI) software system allows to evaluate the overall state of industrial's infrastructures. This is a key information to evaluate maintenance needs and program preventive actions to maximize the availability or the efficiency of the structure. The Belgian company developed its own product with the use of AI and based on the latest technology including embedded super computer Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It recognizes in real time various equipment and can conduct inspection with its automated pilot that optimize flight time and make easier flight control at operator level. The product is developed by their internal experts team and validated by professional Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) pilots recognized internationally within the drone community. By selecting the latest powerful hardware and AI technology they are proud to say being in advance in the inspection sector regarding other implementation on the market. They operate mainly in the areas of industrial maintenance, civil engineering, inspection of works, renewable energies - wind and photovoltaic -, management and planning, etc. Regarding actual standards for human inspection, aerial inspection is a huge step forward that enables clients to inspect smoothly and accurately the state of their infrastructures. It is also a tremendous improvement in terms of safety for the manworkers during inspections as well as for the inspected asset itself. Currently, its strategy is to collaborate as widest as possible with the "Réseau de Transport d'Électricité", usually known as RTE, the electricity transmission system operator of France.
