Ameren’s Drones in Daily Operations

Join us and your fellow members at the Engineers Center for a JOINT MEETING with the Missouri Society of Professional Engineers. This LUNCH MEETING will feature James Pierce who will speak about Ameren’s innovative and system reliability focused approach to deploying drones as a daily operation. Weather permitting, there will be a drone demonstration.

This luncheon will discuss Ameren’s innovative and system reliability focused approach to deploying drones as a daily operation. Weather permitting there will be a demonstration.

Ameren is deploying and utilizing unmanned aerial technology in multiple business lines with a focus on cost savings, reliability, safety and customer satisfaction. Drones are being used daily throughout Ameren’s service territory to inspect power lines, vegetation, gas and generation facilities with a high degree of success. Benefits are even being seen in storm restoration, where drone crews are able to assess damage in difficult to access areas in a fraction of the time a foot patrol would take.
