Chennai, Nov 27:  Keeping up with new technology, the Chennai power utility has come up with a unique idea of putting drone camera in action to rectify the faults in power lines for accuracy and also it will reduce manual workload. The Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (Tangedco), will deploy at least three to four drones along the transmission line which will transmit images to technicians for determining the faulty areas, as reported by TOI.

This move will come into force in the coming summer next year as power lines are flooded with loads in the heat. A Tangedco employee told Times of India that, they will be purchasing the small flying machines from it’s makers who will also operate them initially. He also said that this move will not put weight on the finances of Tangedco. Also Read - Free Petrol in Tamil Nadu: Petrol Pump Offers Free Fuel For Children Who Recite Thiruvalluvar's Couplets

The drones will be deployed mainly on the Kaliventhapattu Sriperumbudur-Taramani, Manali-Mylapore, North Chennai-Manali and Mylapore-basin Bridge lines. This move will also avoid time consuming checks. A drone maker in this regard said that, we are fully knowledgeable and capable of flying the small camera fitted machine over power lines to detect faults, and if such a project comes across then we will accept it. This move by Tangedco was inspired by the 2013 Uttarakhand earthquake as the Harish Rawat government had hired a Chennai based drone maker in rescue mission.
