Case Study - KEC International at Bhutan Power Line Stringing Project
In 2016, MMC helped KEC International Ltd to complete power line stringing project in Bhutan of high altitude after proposing scheme towards the topography of steep and high mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which form deep valleys.
1. The land consists mostly of steep and high mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which form deep valleys. There was a river flew in between the two towers.
2. The distance between the two towers is 1200 meters.
Use Spider only need 20-25 minutes.
No need to cross dangerous area.
Protect lineman from any kind of threat.
Mr Ratish kumar das Stringing manager KEC International said, “Good initiative and best product for transmission line stringing in mountains and the best part is stringing over hot line. I wish you best of luck and keep up the good work.”(KEC International Limited, the flagship company of RPG Group is a global infrastructure Engineering, Procurement and Construction major)
Case Study - PT. Wisma Sarana Teknik Power Line Stringing Project
In Indonesia, many of stringing projects had been delayed for years before partnering with MMC, due to problems seemingly insurmountable. Pentadaya has this kind of overhead line stringing project, the distance between two towers is 500 meters and this project is delayed two years. Then in 2016, they use MMC drone to fly over the active power line and finished this project>>watch the video
1. There is a 150 KV active power line crisscross these two towers, the subcontractor can not turn off the active power line;
2. The project has delayed two years;
3. The soft land can't support scaffolding and work man, if the scaffolding falls, it will damage the active power cord;
Use Spider only need 15-20 minutes.
No need to shut down the active power cord.
Protect lineman from any kind of threat, e.g.avoid to crossing dangerous soft land.
Contractor customer Mr.Erik, Sub: “Saya nggak membayangkan budget karena pengen beli. Ke depannya banyak proyek PLN di perkebunan sawit. PLN nggak mau menebang sawitnya. Kita kerja dari atas. Kalau ada drone kita bisa dari atas semua untuk pancingan, semua harusnya ada manfaatnya.”
PLN stringing expert Mr.Bambang: “Tali pancingan atau lead rope bisa dikendalikan dengan jarak yang aman menggunakan drone. Selama ini untuk melintas di transmisi yang bertegangan harus melalui tower dengan memanjat terlebih dahulu. Tambang pancingan tidak serta-merta bisa ditegangkan. Hal ini bisa berisiko terjadi hubungan singkat pada tambang”
Case Study - PT. QDC Technologies Power Line Stringing Project
PT. QDC Technologies Power Line Stringing Project is located in Bandung and left unfinished for 7 years. The original contractor left behind this project,because they can’t complete it. Then contractor QDC take over this project and try to solve it by their own way, but they have difficulties with local people when they want to do the stringing crossing the residential area. Because the local have demanding requirement such as no touching of the roof. So they use MMC drone as alternative way to finish the project >>watch the video
1. It's difficult to stringing power line crossing the local residential houses' roofs with no damage;
2. Need to pay the damage when crossing private property area;
3. The project has delayed 7 years;
Use Spider to fly over the residents' house roof only need 15 minutes.
No need to pay the damage when crossing private property area.
MMC built long-term cooperation relationship with the Indonesian State Electricity Company, PLN (PT. Perusahaan Listrik Negara), MMC provides drones and training for PLN’s development team>> read more
In April 2017, MMC also finished a power line stringing project for PT. Mega Eltra, the project site is in a high mountain within remote islands - East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
Testimonials: “It’s a race against time. when doing stringing, we need to measure when the fog come and do stringing before the fog covered the towers. The rain and the wind pose much difficulty to the project, but thanks to the MMC drone, we make it and bring power to the local people.” said representative from PT. M.
Successful Demo of Drone Stringing Power Line on Thailand’s Ragged Mountain
In 2017, MMC had power line stringing project for EGAT (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand) in Thailand, the power line stringing project started in a mountainous outskirt in Saraburi with peaks and valleys. The distance between two towers is 450 meters and there is a valley in between which produces wind. With Scale 5 wind resistance, the Spider drone overcame the wind and flied over lush trees avoiding the problem of being intertwined by branches or hanged by human. MMC ground station helps a lot to do the data and image transmission. It cost only 20 minutes to complete the project while preventing deforestation and manpower consumption.Mr.Praphan Ooraikul, manager of CHC Engineering Co., Ltd said. “I have never imagined the drone can substitute manpower to complete such a difficult project I think we found a trustworthy partner now for the power transmission construction.”
