ABOUT US

The smart 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.

  • TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS
  • FAST AND EFFICIENT SERVICES
  • SURVEY – CONSTRUCTION MONITORING – AERIAL THERMOGRAPHY

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 assist our clients to reduce inspection costs, optimize asset performance, achieve 100% site coverage and monitor systematically and efficiently all assets via a comprehensive reporting system.

AERIAL INSPECTION

PANEL INSPECTION ON SOLAR 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 SOLAR PANEL INSPECTION

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

SOLUTIONS

OPTIMIZE YOUR SOLAR PARK PERFORMANCE

-    Inspection for insurance compensation claims

-    Annually/semi-annually/quarterly asset performance inspection

-    Optimal performance inspection prior to sale/purchase of assets

-    Optimal performance inspection prior to delivery of new PV park/assets

-    Use of data collected during the PV Park delivery as baseline data to estimate future performance differences.

INCREASE YOUR RETURN & REDUCE COST:

-    Reduced time required on site for maintenance works

-    Detailed inspection and comprehensive report including a list of faults covering 100% of the installation

-    Improved efficiency and HR management

-    Centralised system for asset performance reporting per client

-    Improved safety for employees

PERFORM PRE-CONSTRUCTION INSPECTIONS

-    Terrain anaglyph analysis

-    Site layout plan in high resolution orthomosaic

 

Monitor the construction progress at every stage

-    Aerial inspection of technical works and comparison according to the construction plan and completion timeline

 

Evaluate the efficiency of solar panels

-    Aerial thermal and optical inspection of each solar panel to assess the park’s performance
