Asset Inspections

Drone asset inspections are fast providing a way for utilities to improve efficiency and reduce costs. In Brisbane and across Australia and even the world, the improvements that drones bring to the asset inspection process are being realised and embraced.

How Drones Benefit the Asset Inspection Process

Regular asset inspections are crucial to monitor and maintain the normal function of infrastructures, equipment and other assets that are a vital part of a company’s day to day business.

Traditionally, asset inspections were time consuming and labour intensive. The man hours required to carry out the inspection, collect and collate the data and then make decisions based on that data were many. With the introduction of drones though, those hours can be significantly reduced – largely thanks to the capabilities of the drone to quickly and easily survey large areas, collect highly accurate data and provide real-time imagery, amongst other factors.

To carry out a drone asset inspection, all that is required is the pilot and the required people to visually monitor the inspection. Areas of interest or concern can then be inspected more closely in the inspection, allowing for more complete data gathering and analysis.

In addition to faster inspection and data gathering, using drones for asset inspections greatly reduces the risk to human life as there is much less need to be involved in the hands on side of the inspection.

Companies that have found success with drone asset inspections include Melbourne Water, who ran a trial and were very impressed with the results.

Drone inspections can be used in several instances, but we would focus on three in this text. Offshore Constructions Construction areas are pretty harsh environments, and the offshore construction areas are no different. They are very demanding and can lead to several faults and even production loss during the rigorous inspection and installation process and keep these losses to a minimum is of utmost importance. Combating this loss can be carried out easily by deploying a drone. For instance, during flare inspection at an oil […]

How Drone Inspection Services Are Changing the Industry

When most people think of drones being used for commercial use, they usually think of photography. These drones are being equipped with some of the best cameras on the market and they can capture incredible shots. However, this camera technology isn’t just being used for great pictures. Something companies are starting to use more and more are drone inspection services.  Businesses and governments alike are using these services to detect potential problems and perform routine maintenance checks. Benefits You may be asking, why use drones for inspections? Well, there are numerous answers. The first is one that you will see a lot when talking about drones; low-cost. Drones are the cheapest aerial vehicles out there, as some of the best commercial drones are only a couple thousand dollars and only require charging as fuel. You simply can’t beat that given the capabilities of these devices. The other huge benefit is safety. When flying a drone into wherever you are inspecting, you aren’t putting any human lives at risk. The operator is several hundred yards away in a safe environment while the drone is navigating through the dangerous part. The worst thing that can happen is that the drone gets lost […]
