Sterlite Power today entered into partnership with Finland's unmanned aerial vehicles solutions provider Sharper Shape for inspection of power transmission projects.
The partnership would help by eliminating manual inspections with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which offers timely information from remote places that are inaccessible through manual methods, thereby making operations more efficient, Sterlite Power said in a statement.
The agreement was signed between Sterlite Power Grid Ventures Chairman Pravin Agarwal and Shaper Shape Chairman Samuel Salmenlinna in presence of Finland Prime Minister Juha Sipila at Make in India Week here.
"I am happy to see Finnish technology being applied in the Indian market. This agreement is a good example of the business activity between Finland and India", Sipila said.
Sterlite Grid's role would be to set up operations in India involving all customer-facing activities. The technology provider, Sharper Shape would offer software solutions, technical know-how.
"India has a tremendous requirement to improve the construction-speed, and operating-efficiency of transmission systems. This partnership will play a critical role towards meeting that need," Agarwal said.
