Where can drones support power plant employees?

  1. Imagine you have flying binoculars. How would you use it?
  2. In what "visual activity" in the field would you have wished you could take a different perspective?
  3. Remember the last 2 or 3 unplanned problems: What happened and how would drones have helped as a tool in the digital toolbox?

Buying and flying a drone has become very easy. However, there is a big difference between using a drone privately and using it for work. For the operator of the drone (and thus the employer), this raises important questions that must be answered on an ongoing basis.

For example:

  • What are the regulatory requirements and how are they implemented within the organization in accordance with the rules?
  • What is to be done when the regulatory environment changes and how is it ensured that the rule changes become known?
  • What training do pilots need? How is it ensured that pilots are trained and educated.


These are just a few of the many reasons in favor of hydrone!

Benefits for operators and employees

  • Identify hazardous areas
  • Improve occupational safety
  • Save important time in the event of an incident

  • Save time-consuming and tedious travel distances
  • Improved data basis


The power plant employees can focus on using the drones - Axpo Hydro Digital takes care of everything else and relieves the power plant and team leaders of most of the operational side work.
