The power distribution grid enables electricity to reach your home, which is why Endesa ensures it maintains and improves this essential element in the communities in which it operate as the distribution company. Our aim is to guarantee power supply continuity and constantly improve the safety of the installations.
Perhaps you have asked yourself at some point what the power grid maintenance and improvement tasks involve. Tasks can be grouped together as follows:
On the one hand, are the woodland tasks: felling, pruning, clearance works and working on areas in which the power grids run, in order to create safety corridors below the lines thus minimising the risk of fires.
We also carry out thorough inspections of all our installations: high, medium and low voltage lines, substations, protection and remote-control systems, distribution centres, remotely controlled operating points, etc. These inspections are carried out with drones equipped with high-resolution cameras in hard-to-reach areas, which enable images of the lines to be captured and the condition of the infrastructures to be verified without interrupting the supply.
