Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has developed its use of drone technology as part of its Sirb (Arabic for fleet) initiative, which contains a fleet of high-end drones used to support Dubai’s infrastructure and contribute to providing efficient and easy-to-use services. The initiative supports national efforts to use modern technologies to serve humanity.
DEWA has improved its uses of the technology to cover various domains including topographic surveys, improved operational efficiency, thermal inspection, photovoltaic panel maintenance, and early detection, using thermal imaging, to identify overhead power lines. This limits risks, reduces costs, enables quick-response times and ensures accuracy, making it easier to make informed decisions. The drones use state-of-the-art upgradable technologies such as high-definition cameras that are equipped with night-vision, lasers and GPS sensors, and can measure pressure, height, magnetic fields.
“DEWA uses drone technology in its Sirb initiative, to improve its
operational efficiency, and provide easy-to-use services to make
everyone happier,” said Saeed
Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO of DEWA.
