Infrastructure, Building & Construction Inspection
Aerial Drone Inspections
Visual inspection by an unmanned drone is a quick and cost-conscious inspection method for onshore and offshore constructions i.e. tanks, wind turbines, chimneys, bridges and other hard to reach installations. Drone inspection enables access to otherwise inaccessible structures and details, offering immediate action as an alternative to more traditional, time consuming and costly inspection methods like helicopter, rope access, sky-lifts, cherry pickers and scaffolding. Based on our extensive experience with and knowledge of all types of inspection, we always offer the best solution, tailor made for the job – with or without a drone.
Drone inspection makes it possible to access areas that may pose health, safety and environmental risks in a fast and safe way.
Using our drone inspection services for visual inspection, provide benefits such as:
inspection of areas difficult to access
preventive maintenance planning and optimized production
access to areas that pose health, safety and environmental risk to humans
quick on-site deployment of the drone inspection system
authorized and qualified UAV inspection personnel
Under normal circumstances, the drone inspection itself is quickly finished. The heavy workload lies in the analysis of the collected data, and the pictures taken by the drones. It is essential here to enlist relevant experts in analysis to obtain the full value from a drone inspection.
Someone lacking the necessary qualified experience may overlook a critical defect or fault, possibly with fatal consequences. For instance, an inspection concerning a steel construction requires an expert metallurgist to analyse and interpret the data.
An inspection report is produced, based on the analysis of this data, and is usually divided into categories of red, yellow and green priority according to the seriousness of the damage. This report can if needed include a service plan with recommendations to cost-effective improvements.
