Northern Powergrid Innovation Festival 2020 - Within Visual Line of Sight (WVLOS)

19 Aug 2020

12:30pm - 01:30pm



This August we will be showcasing some of the most innovative projects that are helping us to maintain, improve and strengthen the local power infrastructure in the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire. From groundbreaking new ways of detecting problems to the very latest in drone technology – our best ideas to tackle climate change, fix faults before they impact customers and bring new ideas to the area will be on show.

Drones might be a new mainstay of budding photographers but they can also be a powerful tool in network maintenance. Spend some time with Michael Rice to find out how we are maximising new technologies for optimum asset management.
