Hotspots: Impact on IRR
Drone-based thermal inspection of solar assets need not always be a cost-intensive activity. In fact, it can be a direct opportunity for profit making.
This is achievable with the help of visualAI that is capable of generating a high-end report that can empower O&M and EPC companies to attain a higher IRR by eliciting a higher power production from their assets.
Based on energy payback alone, our preventive maintenance scans can achieve a positive ROI through a 0.1% improvement in system capacity and on average we find 1.2% of recoverable hotspots defects in a plant. In addition, our service provides significant inspection cost saving by displacing manual thermal inspection technique.
