The story between Exelon and Flyability started back in 2016 when the engineering team of Peach Bottom bought their first unit to perform some tests in a radioactive environment. Exelon realized value using the Elios, so AeroLabs helped equip the utility leader with an Elios drone for each of their nuclear facilities. AeroLabs became an authorized Flyability reseller to help steer the Elios to the rest of the utility industry, and to work with Flyability on shaping the future of its technology and unlock new potential.
"At Exelon, we have realized significant safety improvements and cost-reduction using the Elios to perform indoor asset inspections at our facilities. We feel this is a valuable asset every generating station should have on-hand. As an authorized reseller, we look forward to helping the industry adopt the Elios, and collaborating with Flyability to unlock new innovations," said Colbey Ryan, Co-Founder and head of Business Development for AeroLabs.
Progressively increasing its presence on US territory, Flyability is looking forward to the outcome of its partnership with Exelon AeroLabs. “Elios is used by inspection companies and asset owners all over the world to inspect all sorts of utilities from thermal power plants to water management systems. The network and expertise of Exelon AeroLabs is a serious asset to increase our presence in the US utility industry,” says Patrick Thévoz, CEO of Flyability “We see this partnership as a great opportunity to increase business in the US and are proud of this endorsement of our technology.”
Flyability is demonstrating Elios during AUVSI Xponential 2018. Stopping by booth #4017 is the opportunity to see it fly and try it for yourself. Alongside, Flyability is organizing training days where prospects can discover Elios through an intensive one-day training. More of these training events will be organized along the year. Interested parties will find information about it on Flyability’s website.
Flyability is a Swiss company building safe drones for inaccessible places. By allowing drones to be used safely inside cities, inside buildings, and in contact with people, it enables new interactions and services with UAVs. With Elios, Flyability solves the two most critical issues of one of the fastest growing industries: collision and injury risks. The company’s first market is in industrial inspection where it avoids sending people in dangerous and confined spaces for the inspection of Power Generation, Oil & Gas, Mining, Chemical, or Maritime infrastructures. It is also active in Search & Rescue and Security to assess emergency situations without putting humans at risk. Flyability is the winner of the 1M USD Drones for Good Award and over 15 other technology and business prizes.
