Hepta Group Airborne’s project is supported by Norway Grants Green ICT programme

Hepta Group Airborne is supported by Norway Grants Green ICT small scheme programme, aiming to stimulate and develop innovation-led long-term business cooperation between Estonia and Norway. The small scheme project is necessary to prepare for the main call project in order to further develop Hepta Group Airborne’s cutting-edge autonomous power grid inspection system. The aim of the small grant scheme project is to assess the economic and technological feasibility and reach a conclusion whether or not the project idea has a potential to implement in the main call. During the project, competition and market analysis will be carried out, business plan and IT development plan will be formed and search for a suitable project partner will be carried out.

Green ICT project number EU53340, implementation period 01.07.2019 – 31.10.2019.

People, processes, and procedures required for a safe aerial inspection of power lines

As a company pioneering more benign services of the unmanned aerial inspection of power lines, Hepta ensures that airborne security and safety are taken very seriously. Regulatory approval is necessary to obtain “beyond visual line of sight” (BVLOS) flight permits essential for the productive inspection of long power lines.
