Aerial monitoring of substation site
Innovair conducts weekly drone flights of the under-construction substation site at Cockenzie in East Lothian. As part of two-year contract scope deliverables are aerial imagery and edited video flyovers ensuring site management has a comprehensive snapshot of the progress at the substation. Drone flights are conducted on site liaising with the various project managers to ensure safe flights are coordinated with operations that are being carried out simultaneously on site.
Due to the contract win, Innovair established a new base in East Lothian and created two new positions, hiring two people in this region. Innovair provides a range of specialist inspection services which are delivering accurate, repeatable data to those assembling, transporting, installing and commissioning offshore wind farms. With this strategic location, Innovair can effectively support the development of this project and other offshore wind farms including the likes of: Seagreen, Berwick Bank and Neart na Gaoithe, as well as other energy-related facilities.
Andrew Johnston, Inspection Director of Innovair said:
“This is a significant contract for Innovair, and we are thrilled to be working with Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm on this local project. We are excited about the growth opportunities this contract presents for our new base in East Lothian, demonstrating the increased need for robotic solutions across the wind sector.
As well as supporting Inch Cape throughout their project timeline, it will also allow us to better serve projects in the Forth & Tay region and enable us to respond more effectively to the needs of our clients.”
