The rupture of the Fundão dam in Mariana is the biggest environmental tragedy in Brazil. This month, she turned two. Since then, a number of initiatives have been set up to repair a gigantic series of environmental, social and economic damage throughout the tailings-hit region. And drones are powerful allies for disaster prevention and monitoring.
Among the actions of recovery of areas and monitoring of dams, hydroelectric plants are increasingly betting on the use of drones for inspection of levees and structure of containment dams, in addition to identifying possible areas of risk. Much of this work has been done with the XMobots Drones for disaster prevention and monitoring.
There are already three XMobots clients working with operations for recovery and monitoring institutions linked to hydroelectric plants. Among them are Engineering CF, Geotech Brasil and Geopixel, all operating with Echar 20C HA.
With the ability to map up to 4,800 hectares per flight under ISA conditions, the XMobots drone features HA Technology. This ensures high accuracy and accuracy in data capture. Certainly the Echar 20C HA is better equipment for this type of work.
