Powerline Robotics &
Drone Powerline Inspections
The power transmission grid is extremely complex. There are more than 500,000 kilometres of high-voltage transmission lines and millions of kilometres of low-voltage lines within North America alone, connecting electrical power plants to homes and businesses. The power grid is ever-evolving, but we are at the forefront of change with unique solutions. At FulcrumAir, we remain ‘Always Above’ by introducing innovative and time-saving aerial robotics and commercial drone services. We currently offer autonomous bird flight diverter installations and drone powerline inspections to enhance safety and provide effective data and solutions to help our customers manage their projects and assets.
Save time on manual installations
The LineFly is the world’s most efficient method for installing bird flight diverters, installing 24 precisely placed line markers in only 3 minutes. Save time with the LineFly, only from FulcrumAir.
Ensure the safety of employees
Manual installations of bird flight diverters have historically been completed via helicopter. This method is not only time consuming but also dangerous. The LineFly system places line markers at no risk to human safety.
Offer more agile capabilities
Utilizing drones and aerial robotics for all of your powerline inspection needs allows for more versatile and rugged capabilities and applications. Accomplish more with FulcrumAir.
Powerline Robotics & Drone Applications
Bird Flight Diverter Installation
The installation of bird flight diverters assists in reducing avian mortality. Bird collisions with powerlines are extremely common and result in the death of millions of migratory birds each year. These collisions also often result in power outages and fires. We perform bird flight diverter installations using our proprietary LineFly robot, and the patented low light diverters from Power Line Sentry to prevent the damage from these collisions.
Heavy-Duty Equipment For Drone Powerline Inspections & Bird Flight Diverter Installations
The E7500 series drone is our robust heavy-lift drone, optimized for short to medium flights carrying heavy payloads. Powerful enough to lift the LineFly robot, the E7500 effectively replaces helicopters for bird flight diverter installations. It’s the perfect machine for all heavy-duty applications.
Bucket Truck Lifting
Drones may not be necessary or practical for every job. When installing bird flight diverters near aerodromes, in urban environments, or on busy stretches of roads, a bucket truck can lift the LineFly to the wire. This process allows us to complete installs in flight-restricted locations, still eliminating the need for helicopters and reducing safety-risks to linemen without the additional cost of a drone.
