FAST & RELIABLE

 

the optimum solution for inspecting Solar Parks

IDS – INDUSTRIAL DRONE SERVICES has been active in the renewable energy sector in Greece since 2011. In 2019 we introduced our aerial inspection solutions to Solar Parks and other industrial installations using specialized drones.

Our services provide comprehensive, fast and cost-efficient solutions for the inspection and identification of anomalies in a wide range of industrial assets with the use of state-of-the-art aerial inspection systems.

IDS offers to businesses that own, maintain or manage Solar Parks a simple, centralised and efficient way to utilise innovative technologies for aerial inspection.

IDS drone services provide an extremely fast inspection-time on-site,  support our clients in achieving lower inspection costs, asset performance optimisation, 100% site coverage and monitoring systematically and efficiently all assets through a comprehensive reporting system.

APPLICATIONS

PANEL INSPECTION ON TRACKERS

Aerial inspection with thermal and RGB cameras has comparative advantages over ground inspection as it adapts to the angle variation of the system avoiding glare and reflections

ROOFTOP PV PANEL INSPECTION

Thermal and optical inspection of solar modules installed on industrial and residential rooftops. Fast, efficient and safe panel inspection on rooftops with varying inclination and height

CONSTRUCTION MONITORING

Monitor the maintenance and construction works of Solar Parks. Track the progress in different stages from start to completion of the project

UTILITY-SCALE INSPECTION

Inspection of large-scale Solar Park installations with 100% coverage and detailed reporting
