The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Power dis­tri­bu­tion com­pany Tata Power Delhi Dis­tri­bu­tion Ltd plans to em­ploy drones for faster main­te­nance of its dis­tri­bu­tion network to of­fer “bet­ter and ac­cu­rate” ser­vice res­o­lu­tions to its seven mil­lion con­sumers in the city. The dis­com used nano-drones in two pi­lot projects at Ashok Vi­har and Rani­bagh in April-May this year to study the vi­a­bil­ity of drone ap­pli­ca­tion for sur­veil­lance of grids, sub-transmission lines network and grid equip­ment.

The project will have wide ap­pli­ca­tion in the com­ing years and will help us serve our con­sumers bet­ter, said an of­fi­cial.
