Last week we did an inspection of an overflow shaft at one of Hydro Energi’s hydroelectric power plants using a modified SPURV tailored for industrial use. A payload configuration comprising of flood lights and a 12x zoom pan/tilt dome camera enabled data gathering in the pitch black shaft which is inclined at a 45 degree angle, which laid grounds for evaluating risk of downfall from the roof. We learned a lot about use cases for the unit as well as need for development of new functionality, and the demonstration was a great success overall.
