Rotor-wing patrols help our electric clients find and fix damage to their assets. Operations and engineering personnel conduct thorough inspections via the helicopter platform, allowing our customers to gather information and make decisions in real-time.
We are responsible for patrolling approximately 30,000 miles of power grid infrastructure with our helicopter fleet annually. In addition to routine powerline patrols, we provide 24/7 emergency services. We understand a quick response is vital to keep our utility clients operational.
For the oil and gas industry, we have experience conducting aerial patrols of numerous types of transmission pipelines in the United States. The helicopter has proven to be a very useful platform for our clients to observe ROW conditions at low speeds and low altitudes. Many ROW anomalies have been found via helicopter patrols that prove too difficult to detect on a high-speed, high-altitude airplane patrol.
