Cyberhawk Innovations is proud to announce that it has been recognised as a finalist at the 2016 UK Energy Innovation Awards in the categories Best Offshore Renewable Innovation and Best Electricity Network Improvement.
The world leader in Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicles (ROAV), otherwise known as UAVs or drones, continues to pioneer the use of this technology for inspection and survey, leading the way in converting ROAV captured data into powerful asset information used to inform strategic asset management decisions.
The company has been named as a finalist for Best Offshore Renewable Innovation as a result of the significant cost, time and safety benefits on offer to both onshore and offshore wind turbine inspection.
Similarly, the shortlisting for Best Electricity Network Improvement also draws upon these benefits which Cyberhawk has demonstrated in projects around the world.
A critical part of the company’s offering, covered within both categories, is iHawk. This cloud -based asset management software plays a key role in the company’s service offering. Designed in-house, it allows clients to intuitively access the valuable asset management information that has been collected by Cyberhawk’s ROAVs and analysed by Cyberhawk’s engineers using iHawk software. The unique software uses a map-based interface and displays asset status using a traffic light colour coding system, which allows users to drill into findings to view high definition images and engineering commentary.
Craig Roberts, CEO at Cyberhawk said: “We are extremely proud to have been recognised for the powerful combination of ROAV data collection and asset management software in two categories at this year’s UK Energy Innovations Award.
“Cyberhawk conducted the very first ROAV industrial inspection in 2010, and has since built an unrivalled track record in the utilities, wind, oil and gas and rail sectors, based on safe flight operations and on the conversion of drone-captured data into actionable asset management information in the cloud. This shortlisting is testament to our skilled and dedicated team and the progressive, innovative focus of our business.”
Cyberhawk is headquartered in Livingston, Scotland, with further bases in the Middle East and SE Asia. The company has completed more than 25 world firsts, with blue-chip customers in more than 20 countries on four continents.
Now it its seventh year, the Energy Innovation Awards recognise the ideas and technologies developed by pioneering businesses that have the potential to shape the future of the energy sector. Winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on Thursday 28 April, at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate.
