Hepta Airborne recognized as an exemplary service provider

Over the past four years, Hepta Airborne has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Enefit Connect, one of the biggest network operators in Estonia. During that time period, Hepta’s inspection teams have covered and analysed huge amounts of power lines all over Estonia. A lot of effort has also been put into conducting post-storm inspections, which allow the critical power supply on which thousands of people rely on, to be restored quickly and efficiently. Overall, a lot of hard work has been put in by both sides, making sure the power grid is well inspected and taken care of. That is also why Enefit Connect has renewed its contract with Hepta, currently working on a new five-year plan.
