CARE

What’s the value of using drones for safe inspections ?

The "CARE" project aims to develop visual inspections of our asset equipment like boilers and piping by UAVs (drones) reducing risk for personal injury till ZERO. This technique increases safety by replacing humans with drones in activities where the injury risk is high and allow sknowledge sharing throughout the Group, thus finding new ways of working inspired by our Life saving rules. In 5 years, there have been approximately 50 flights over 14 power plants resulting in a reduction of the maintenance period by 4 days on average.
