Case Study - KEC International at Bhutan Power Line Stringing Project
In 2016, MMC helped KEC International Ltd. with power line stringing project in a high altitude place of Bhutan and proposed a solution towards the topography of steep and high mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which were filled with deep valleys.
1. Steep and high mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers and deep valleys. There was a river between the two towers;
2. The distance between the two towers is 1200 meters.
Spider Solutions/ Advantages:
With Spider, it only takes 20-25 minutes;
No need to cross dangerous area;
Protect lineman from any kind of threat.
Mr Ratish Kumar, the stringing manager of 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 company major on infrastructure engineering, procurement and construction.)
Case Study - PT. Wisma Sarana Teknik Power Line Stringing Project
In Indonesia, many of stringing projects has 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 has been delayed for two years. Then in 2016, they used 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 cannot turn off the active power line;
2. The project has been delayed for two years;
3. The soft land can't support scaffolding and work man, if the scaffolding falls, it will damage the active power cord;
Spider Solutions/ Advantages:
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 located in Bandung and was left unfinished for 7 years. The original contractor left behind this project because of too many challenges. Then contractor QDC took over this project and tried to solve it in their own way, but they ran into some conflicts with local people when they tried to do the stringing crossing the residential area. Because the local residents raised demands such as no touching of the roof, they decided to use MMC drones as an alternative way to finish the project.>>watch the video
It's difficult to stringing power line crossing the local residential houses' roofs without causing any damage;;
2. Need to pay for the damage when crossing private property area;
3. The project has delayed 7 years.
Spider Solutions/ Advantages:
1. Use Spider to fly over the residents' houses only needs 15 minutes;
2. No need to pay for the damage when crossing private property area;
3. MMC has 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.
“It was a race against time. When we were doing stringing, we needed to measure when the fog came and did stringing before the fog covered the towers. The rain and the wind posed many difficulties to the project, but thanks to the MMC drone, we made it and brought power to the local people.” Said from a representative of PT. M.
Successful Demo of Drone Stringing Power Line on Thailand’s Ragged Mountain
In 2017, MMC accomplished a 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 was 450 meters and there was a valley in between and kept producing wind. With level 5 wind resistance, the Spider drone overcame the wind and flew over lush trees without being intertwined by branches or hanged by human. MMC Ground Station helped a lot with the data and image transmission. It took only 20 minutes to complete the project while prevented from deforestation and manpower consumption.Mr. Praphan Ooraikul, the 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.”
