Location: Fujian Quanzhou, China
Application: drone inspection
Device: Heisha D80 autonomous drone docking station (works with DJI Mavic)
As the Electric Substation of Quanzhou belongs to the national electric company, its assets belong to the government, the security of large and valuable assets matters not only to the electric substation but also to common people’s daily life.
The maintenance department of the Quanzhou Electric Substation really appreciates the convenience that Heisha D80 autonomous drone docking station has brought.
“Our team has to work in shifts to check and make sure all the facilities are running normally, we have 6 people to work from days to nights.”
-Team leader of the maintenance department
Many large facilities in this Electric Substation need to be checked regularly to ensure the whole station can run normally, such as the transformer, its as big as a house, it requires ladders to check on the top, it’s risky and cost a lot of time and strength to climb up and down. But it’s nothing to a drone, especially to the drone being controlled by the D80 drone dock, a few clicks will do the checking work.
With the HEISHA D80 drone docking station, a drone can also carry out flight missions remotely to patrol the wall and notice the lost person (or animals) at the first time, then send them the kind warning so to protect their safety.
Quanzhou Electric Substation has signed a one-year contract to use D80 to do the inspection work.
