DTEK’s Regional Power Grid Service in Kyiv tested the SHERP UTV quadcopter for use in servicing power grids in hard-to-reach places.
DTEK is the largest private company in the energy sector of Ukraine. The company’s enterprises produce electricity at solar, wind and thermal power plants.
As a result of the test survey, DTEK obtained data on the technical condition of 2 km of lines located in a hard-to-reach swampy area. Specialists will be able to use this data for timely repair of these sections.
SHERP plays an important role in maintaining and repairing power grids. Since most high-voltage lines are located far from settlements, it is often difficult to reach them. With all -terrain vehicles SHERP, the power system operators are no longer afraid of impassable swamps, hills and off-road terrain in general. SHERP utility task vehicles will pass on any surface, float and overcome all obstacles.
