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.
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.
