Solar panel inspection

Solar panels are highly sensitive to external agents and must be regularly inspected and diagnosed in order to efficiently generate electricity. Thermography is the ideal method for inspecting and diagnosing solar panels.  It helps to determine the temperature decomposition and allows for detection of overheated areas in individual cells or all of the module cells. The hot spots results from shading as well as transport or production defects.

Standard ground handling inspection cannot provide us with the image of the entire tested object but
only its fragments. With our system we can see the entire area and quickly spot any failures. Our drones are equipped with devices which enable making extremely precise aerial measurement.

Why choose us?

  • Highest quality FLIR brand thermal camera images,
  • Recording the video material from the conducted inspection for further analysis,
  • Thermographic inspection of the solar power stations throughout Sweden/Europe
  • UltraHD 4K video image quality with live video feed
  • In case of emergency, thanks to our location we are able to get to any location in Europe within a few hours.

Why use a drone?

  • Time saving – The system’s mobility and its ability to rapidly analyse gathered data reduces the time of defect detection and repair to a minimum,
  • High productivity– Low costs and short time of taking photos make for the most effective way of the solar panels’ inspection,
  • High quality inspection– our trained pilots are able to fly very close to the inspected object. Together with the customer, we can rapidly locate and diagnose the problem,
  • The best thermal imaging equipment – using highest quality thermal imaging cameras we are able to detect defects arouse during transportation, storage or production.

 Drone inspection disadvantages:

  • Short flying time – short flying time due to low battery durability requires coming back to the starting point every 15-25 minutes. However, we have a lot of batteries as well as a mobile recharging eliminates this problem.
  • Weather restrictions – The drone is limited when the wind’s speed exceeds 10 m/s, or when it’s raining/snowing.
