ASSET INSPECTION SHOWCASE
Below are examples of asset inspections that we have undertaken utilising our drones. There are numerous reasons why it may be necessary or prudent to use a drone to carry out an asset inspection. Drones can be used to access areas that are difficult or dangerous to reach due to their height or location and drones will often be able to access an area in a quicker, safer and more cost effective manner than traditional inspection methods.
We offer a number of different services when we are conducting a drone asset inspection. We can take still images and video of identified points of interest and provide these to our client in a number of different ways, a company engineer or representative can also attend the site and observe and direct the inspection through the use of our remote monitor. In certain circumstances, it is now even possible to transmit the inspection back to a remote location allowing engineers and technicians to identify areas of concern prior to them attending the site personally. This allows staff members to ensure they know what the problem is before they potentially have to travel long distances to a remote site, allowing them to take any required tools or spares with them, saving time and money.
Drone asset inspections can be useful for everything from an insurance damage assessment or a roof inspection through to a radio tower or pipeline inspection. Our Drone Asset Inspection Services page explains our capabilities and the wide variety of ways that we can assist your business in this area.
PIPELINE INSPECTION - LEAKING WATER MAIN
The purpose of this inspection was to identify the cause and location of a leak in a major water supply pipeline suspended above a river in Sydney. We attended the site with company engineers and obtained a range of high resolution images and video from various angles for use by the engineers. The engineers observed the inspection using our remote monitor which receives a real time video feed directly from our drone. The inspection focused on identifying the source of the leaking water and then an assessment of the condition of the attachment bolts and overall deterioration of the pipe segment. All images and video footage were delivered to the project engineers in under 24 hours allowing them to quickly start work on their final assessment and plan the repair. As a result of the high quality images and information gathered, the project engineers were able to make an informed assessment of the damage.
