Annual Power Line Inspection – E.ON

8 January 2016

It’s a new year and the beginning of next week we will start the power line inspection of E.ON’s power grid.

This is a planned mission conducted annually to ensure that E.ON’s customers can get reliable supply of electricity. For this operation, we mainly use the MD500 which is very well suited for this type of mission. To do the job as effectively as possible, we have ground personnel with fuel trucks that follows the helicopters during the day for refueling.

If you’re interested of how the power line inspection is performed, have a look at the above video.

In addition to the annual planned inspection, we will continue to support the power industry with power outage inspections, sawing and construction.
