BDM deploys drone as well as AI to inspect solar setups rapidly and methodically
at a look if a solar system “leaks” heat? Spot problems, wear or malfunction online? BDM in Bolsward makes it possible with the heat video camera of the DJI Matrice 210 RTK drone as well as the introduction of an on-line consumer portal. Solar plant owners can check information from thermal inspections 24/7 to take full advantage of yield.
Expanding demand for thermal evaluations solar energy field
BDM (Brandsma Digital Measuring) has been using drones for measurements as well as assessments for a very long time, particularly in the solar and also framework sectors. In action to the raising demand from the solar energy sector, BDM selected the DJI Matrice 210 RTK in 2020, the drone that supports several gimbals and also thermal imagers.
This advanced drone is preferably matched to find heat loss in structures as well as solar installations. Even in the most severe weather, he executes his evaluation and recording tasks undisturbed.
Thermal photos tell a great story
After a year of successful testing as well as investigations, BDM’s inspection experts prepare to methodically carry out thermal assessments for existing and also brand-new consumers. Drone recordings are connected to a top notch analysis as well as discovery program.
With the aid of artificial intelligence, BDM makes noticeable what condition setups remain in, whether the yield is ideal, and what possible weak points are. From panels to inverters as well as strings: complete installments are photographed from the air down to the smallest details.
Clients enjoy 24/7 and also maximize their return
Flaws as well as breakdowns are revealed, yet likewise dangers of failing and wear, for example, which can be taken prompt action. Roel van der Sloep (manager at BDM): “We finish the photo of installments. This leads to incredible thermal pictures, however the essence is, obviously, what these photos tell and imply. We make that clear. Clients view 24/7 and also can use this understanding to make best use of the performance of solar installments.”
BDM offers the information in the on-line consumer site in partnership with Above Surveying, European professional in data evaluation in the solar energy market. The new service is a best suitable for BDM’s objective in Bolsward to efficiently unburden customers in the solar market.
The secret? Evaluate and measure swiftly with a drone.
