Assessing the condition of tall, inaccessible or large scale assets has been an expensive prospect in the past, and often includes shutting down the asset and putting people in harm’s way.
Drones offer the possibility of performing visual and thermal inspection of tall assets without the need to risk anyone’s life with rope access work, and can provide a much more thorough data capture process for your ongoing records. It is also possible to inspect many assets without interrupting their operation, for example smoke and flare stacks where previously there would be significant downtime.
More affordable inspection can lead to more frequent inspection, and therefore better spotting of issues and preventative maintenance to drastically reduce costs over time.
And most importantly UAV aerial inspections can keep people in the ground and out of hazardous areas for improved health and safety in your organisation.
