Ignitis new combined cycle power plants require regular inspection of boilers. A solution was tested for secure and efficient inspection of interiors in power plant boilers and other large indoor structures using drones.
•The project was carried out in collaboration with the team of drone specialists from DRONETEAM.
•Basic technology verification tests conducted in August of 2020 in TEC-3 confirmed the capability for autonomous flight without using GPS or other satellite positioning systems.
•In September of 2020 this project was piloted in Kaunas cogeneration plant.
•Solution is currently applied when needed in Kaunas and Vilnius waste-to-energy cogeneration plants during their planned maintenance and inspection period.
