Drone inspections and surveys can be performed on difficult-to-access pipelines and structures. Drones provide a safer, more cost-effective, and faster inspection process. Drones are becoming more popular in a variety of industries. While they continue to be useful in unexpected situations, historical assessments are where they are beginning to show more value. Many plants now perform drone inspections every year or biannually to evaluate the condition of their equipment. The drone data provides key energy stakeholders with more information about energy-generating equipment, projects and operations. This allows them to make better decisions.
Inspections and mapping of cell towers, cooling towers and oil and gas infrastructure. Drones can navigate close to structures and are equipped with obstacle avoidance capabilities. High-resolution video or images can be taken that show cracks, damaged wires, and other defects at angles and elevations that are difficult for humans to access. This allows for more detailed data collection without exposing the inspection crew to potential risks.
It can be difficult to inspect and access confined spaces at construction sites, the oil and gas industry and other facilities. It is no longer necessary to send personnel into dangerous or unsafe confined spaces. Drones can navigate safely and easily in tight spaces. Drones perform inspections at a fraction the cost and time of traditional methods.
The purpose of thermal imaging with drones to detect leaks and faulty structures, as well as energy loss, is to reduce the time required to inspect a property manually. Thermal imaging with drones can be used to detect potential malfunctions in the future.
Drones are able to inspect and safely inspect equipment while it is operating, including boilers, windmills, cable trays, cooler towers as well as electrical equipment, flare stacks, pressure equipment, solar cells, storage tanks, and other infrastructure. Drones can help to reduce production and shutdown times. Drones also make it easier to work in difficult or dangerous places and at heights. Drones can also improve safety and quality, while minimizing any negative environmental impacts.
For commercial and residential real estate, drones can perform roof and building inspections. Assess roof and shingle conditions, as well as progress on new installations. You can easily collect useful data to make actionable decisions.
High-definition aerial imagery provides valuable information about storage tanks. Our drone inspection services allow you to navigate tight spaces and capture useful photos.
Understanding tower condition and existing mounted equipment is key. Drone photography allows you to capture all angles of a tower.
Drone photography makes it easy to inspect large solar panels, wind turbines, power lines, and other structures. You can fly around large solar panels to inspect their condition and tall wind turbines for details.
Visualize the condition of bridges, identify structural weaknesses, and show off your recently completed bridge construction. Drones can be used to capture stunning marketing imagery and collect valuable data.
You can get decision-making information from detailed aerial images of any project you require. We will work closely with you to ensure we capture the images that you require to obtain the data you are looking for.
Drone photography allows you to gather important data about residential and commercial rooftops. Aerial views can be used to inspect a structure or building’s condition, spot any leaks or imperfections, and even understand the current vents, HVAC systems, and solar panels that are already installed on it.
Rooftop aerial photography allows you to make smarter, better and more informed decisions. You can get actionable information for roof repairs, re-shingling, and solar panel installation. Understanding roof conditions will help you give more precise quotes and project estimates.
You can also communicate clearly with investors and clients using high-definition photos. Let them know what is happening on the project, as well as your process.
Buildings are subject to abuse from all angles, at all altitudes. Sometimes you will need to inspect side panels along with roof inspections. Drones are able to fly directly to your location and provide detailed information.
Aerial photography is a great way to understand your facility and model it. It also provides valuable data. Drones make it possible to maneuver in difficult-to-reach areas. You can inspect your tanks from all angles.
Towers for radio, cell, and powerlines can be dangerously high and difficult to climb. Drone photography allows you to fly around towers and view it from every angle. Before you take action, make sure to assess the situation from safety.
High-definition aerial photos can be a great way to see the condition of a tower or radio tower. To find cost-effective, better repair options, it is important to understand what equipment is damaged.
Recent drone cameras have new zoom capabilities that allow you to get close to your equipment. You can capture more data than ever.
Drones can inspect multiple towers simultaneously with greater speed and range thanks to longer flight times and better operating ranges. You won’t have to risk workers climbing up to the tops towers to mount equipment. Instead, fly a drone to get a detailed aerial view of the towers and then fly close enough to them with ease.
Bridge building is one of the greatest engineering achievements. Aerial photography allows you to showcase your best work, whether you are building suspension bridges and beam bridges, truss bridges, cable-stayed or arch bridges.
Take compelling and beautiful photos of your marketing projects to show clients, investors, and others.
Drone bridge inspections allow you to see your bridge from every angle, even below! Some drones can point their cameras upwards to provide valuable data about the bridge’s underside. You can use aerial imagery to inspect your bridge for cracks, rust, and other structural weaknesses.
Take informative aerial photos of solar panel installations. Take aerial photographs of solar panel installations to inspect the condition and examine specific panels.
Drone photography can also be used to create compelling images for marketing purposes to show your solar panels to investors, clients and others.
High-altitude aerials can provide large-picture visualizations or allow you to take close photos to inspect the condition of panels. Drones can be used to record important data. You can monitor your solar panels from afar and only pay attention to the ones that require attention.
Drone inspections can be particularly helpful in monitoring panels at difficult-to-reach places, such as the roofs of commercial buildings.
