Zeitview acquires Heliolytics, expanding aerial solar inspections

Zeitview, an aerial inspections provider, announced it has acquired Heliolytics, which specializes in photovoltaic system performance via aerial inspection and integrated analytics.

The acquisition of this former division of NovaSource Power Services enables the combining of Heliolytics’ data insights with Zeitview’s capabilities in aerial inspection technologies. The majority of Heliolytics staff will join Zeitview, and the team’s presence in Toronto, Canada, will continue. The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

“Heliolytics are pioneers in the solar industry and have earned a commendable reputation for their unwavering commitment to quality, precision, and exceptional customer service—values we hold in the highest esteem,” said Dan Burton, founder and Chief Executive Officer at Zeitview. “Their expertise and dedication are valuable as we continue developing groundbreaking solutions that redefine inspection standards within the renewable energy sector.

For renewable energy customers, this collaboration reinforces Zeitview’s multi-asset approach to solar, wind, and utilities, the company said. For property owners, it offers insights into the performance of their rooftop solar facilities. For all customers, Heliolytics’ international operations in Europe, Latin America, and the Asian Pacific are also being combined with Zeitview’s global footprint in those same regions.

Heliolytics’ inspection tools and integrated analytics are now supported by Zeitview’s AI/ML data processing engine. With this addition, Zeitview said it doubles the reach and breadth of its airplane operations and adds topography, EPC, and drone solutions to Heliolytics.

A complete integration of Heliolytics operations, data capture, and software into Zeitview’s market-leading global solar solution is expected to be finished by the end of 2024.
