Power line Inspection and Live Line Repair and Cleaning are areas with a huge market potential in India. The major Power Distribution Companies in India, namely Power Grid India Ltd and NTPC, are facing a huge issue of frequent tripping of main grid power lines due to dust accumulation and shorting, as well as poor maintenance and troubleshooting practices.

Towards this, a demand was felt for using helicopter as a platform for live wire works, that is, not only inspection and identification of hotspots (Corona imaging), but also repair and washing of the live wires. Although this was a costlier and more technically demanding task, it would save the need of tripping the main grids for purpose of repair and maintenance, thus reducing the power losses for the company.
