DRONES FOR CLEANING HV ELECTRICAL INSULATORS

In order to reduce both costs and risks for agents, a drone solution for cleaning High Voltage Insulators has been developed by ENGIE Lab CRIGEN and ENGIE Fabricom.
Tests suggest that a 8,000 HV Tower could be safely cleaned in 3 days and that this solution would slash costs by 30%.
