Comprehensive Visual Power Line Inspections
Make next day line inspections and enable on-the-spot repairs with Comprehensive Visual Inspection (CVI). Our helicopter power line inspection services include a helicopter and crew using a combination of gyroscopically stabilized optical equipment and naked-eye methods to make their visual observations. These activities are completed according to a very broad and all-inclusive system of condition reporting criteria. This approach is a highly effective way to eliminate the need to extend the contractor’s schedule.
Several levels of detail are available, from a general patrol to the comprehensive visual electric line inspection. Haverfield’s Comprehensive Visual Inspection procedure results in reportable conditions recorded in a customized database and sent to you in any format.
Our quality assurance inspection is also used for post-construction projects. With this service, utilities are able to make virtually next day inspections of construction projects that enable repairs to be made on-the-spot. To date, Haverfield has inspected over 210,000 structures in the U.S. and abroad.
Haverfield has performed aerial patrols since the Company’s inception more than 30 years ago. Haverfield is able to efficiently inspect 150-200 miles of transmission lines per day and conducts routine, emergency and forestry patrols.
You can count on Haverfield’s years of expertise to complete detailed inspections of your equipment including Comprehensive Visual Inspections.
Infrared Power Line Inspection
Haverfield has the ability to provide aerial infrared transmission and power line inspections. Our established experience along with enhanced high resolution equipment allows us to locate potential problems and assist utilities with eliminating failures in transmission, distribution and substation systems. Infrared inspections incorporate computer enhanced infrared imaging to detect hot spots on transmissions line and line components. This can be a valuable airborne tool to prevent a failure before it happens.
