Hydro-Québec and National Grid Sign Licensing Agreement for the Linescout Technology

Hydro-Québec and National Grid have signed an important licensing agreement for the LineScout, a robotic device able to inspect high-voltage transmission lines. Under the licensing agreement, National Grid obtains the right to use LineScout Technology on the UK territory for a period of ten years. The two companies are working together to broaden their collaborative approach to strategic research and development. In an effort to improve reliability, inspections and safety, Hydro-Québec's research institute (IREQ) developed LineScout Technology. The remote-controlled robot uses cameras to inspect line conditions and discover irregularities, while also employing a smart navigation system to pinpoint locations in need of attention. The LineScout is able to manoeuvre around obstacles such as splices, hardware components and aviation warning markers.
