• Inspection as a Service program to deliver full virtual inspection of AllgäuNetz’s distribution network.
  • Virtual inspection supported by Artificial Intelligence.

AllgäuNetz the Distribution System Operator in southern Allgäu, Germany is partnering with eSmart Systems to transition their infrastructure inspection from manual to virtual inspection supported by Artificial Intelligence. This move is to emphasize AllgäuNetz’s strategy of integrating more renewables and expanding their intelligent networks and digitalizing their assets and operations to support the energy transition and optimise a high level of security of supply to their customers.

We were very impressed with eSmart Systems approach and methodology to support our inspection needs. Through an initial pilot project, the high-quality accurate inspection results delivered within Grid Vision® provided valuable insights into our critical infrastructure. We are now thrilled to be rolling this out across our whole infrastructure.

Head of Network Planning, AllgäuNetz GmbH & Co. KG

As part of this partnership eSmart Systems will provide the full end-to-end inspection solution from image capture with automated flight patterns and drones to the virtual inspection, which will provide safer, more accurate and efficient visual inspections and will optimize the inspection costs. The program will also build an image-based digital asset alongside the inspection which will support AllgäuNetz to focus on assets based on condition for maintenance and rebuilds.

We are thrilled to be partnering with AllgäuNetz and are looking forward to supporting their digitalization strategy with our inspection program with the use of our Grid Vision® solution. This partnership will provide safer, more accurate and efficient visual inspections and will increase the efficiency and safety of their critical infrastructure.
