Unique drones for green and smart energy business
Comprehensive solutions for energy businesses using drones
Automation processes such as maintenance and management of power lines, prevention of health and nature protection is one of the hot topics in the field of electricity distribution and energy transmission systems of the future.
Drones bring fresh air with their unique capabilities as agility, availability and flexibility across many industries.
“At Lambda solutions, we focus on solving specific tasks performed in the field of high and very high voltages up to 400 kV. We are the unicorn in the world that can operate in the area of phase conductors under full load with the possibility of physical contact. ”
This attribute eliminates the need to disconnect distribution nodes from voltage, and thus perform the necessary tasks as management, maintenance and monitoring of the power lines while ensuring a constant supply of energy to end users.
Drones allow us to install bird diverters onto the affected routes in areas and places where you cannot get by conventional methods or by helicopter.
Our technology prevents the excessive death of endemics and directly increases the reliability of transmission systems, thus saving loads of money and direct expenses of electricity providers and distributors.
Our experienced team (pilot and assistant) can use the Lambda ONE drone to install diverters based on clamp mounts ( i.e. fireflies from Hammar Produkter ) in the environment above water bodies, in PLAs, hard-to-reach terrain and in worsened weather conditions.
- Daily estimated installed capacity ~ 20 – 100 diverters / team
- Annual estimated installed capacity ~ 10,000 diverters / team
- Worldwide operations
Installation is possible on distribution and transmission systems in the range from 22 kV – 400 kV inclusive.
No need to disconnect the affected distributing nodes from power.
- Possibility to work under voltage up to 400kV
- No need to disconnect the line from the power supply
- Price of the service compared to common installation methods
- Direct cost savings compared to common installation methods
- High flexibility and operability
- Reduced technical background
- Minimization of field damage
- Low risk of injury to the operator
- Possibility to work in a protected area, over water areas and hard to reach terrain
The idea to install bird flight diverters using drones on high-voltage lines was born and materialized five years ago. Historically, we have caused a strong positive response from the professional and lay public by our worldwide installations performed in Hungary, France or Cyprus.
Years of optimization and development have transferred innovation with a global impact to a full-fledged product. We have modernized, i.e. iteratively optimized every other prototype and achieved a robust, scalable drone platform ready to cover a wide range of our clients' problems.
The goal of Lambda solutions is to offer the market a comprehensive service in the field of installation of bird diverters. From the selection of the most suitable solution, through its procurement, possible modification of our drone superstructure to the installation itself.
We are engineers and developers who adore technical challenges and turn the impossible into the real. Therefore, contact us in the matter of cooperation in research and development activities, where we would be able to incorporate our Lambda ONE drone platform.
CHIEF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
This is the third generation of a drone completely made for the purpose of installing diverters on the powered phase conductors. Our unique solution has passed full certification and is competent to perform the hard work.
Lambda One is able to work in strong electromagnetic fields, in fog and offers stable operation even at wind speeds up to 30 km/h.
Basic tech. specifications:
- Lightweight and portable 3D printed body
- Modified control electronics
- Camera and ultrasound guidance (in progress)
- Quad motors and propellers
- Interchangeable superstructure – clipping mechanism
- Superstructure adapted for hanging Hammar Produkter / Carbon 2050 / Preformed pliers
- Possible to scale up to 150kg of uplift weight
Maintenance of power lines and installation of divers with a helicopter is prohibited in many countries, including Germany and Slovakia. Therefore, the only legal alternative to aerial work is drones.
The basic advantage of drones is affordability and reach even to locations where it is not possible to build a high-lift platform under any circumstances.
Inštalácia dronom na rozdiel od ručnej inštalácie je možná bez odpojenia napájacieho uzla a potreby akokoľvek manipulovať s vodičmi.
Ručná inštalácia je aj napriek odpojeniu vedení od napätia vysoko riziková a finančne náročná v prípade, že je treba vodiče demontovať zo stožiarov.
