Oil & Gas Industry
Our drones can inspect pipelines, pump stations, rigs, refineries and storage tanks. We can find leaking pipelines, sniff for VOC or other invisible gas leaks or emissions at refineries and rigs, and thermally map overheating equipment. We can perform flare stack inspections without shutting down the stack.
We perform fast visual inspections of towers, from structural to equipment to cabling. We optimize your technician time by flying pre-climb inspections that quickly verify issues, establish cable or equipment needs, and indicate which parts and tools are required by the technician – avoiding multiple dangerous climbs.
We can rapidly inspect towers after storms or other potential damage, to help prioritize tower repairs. Inspection organized by software makes it easy to catalog before/after states with photographic records of repairs and upgrades. Our drones can give you a quick and complete system inventory for best asset management.
Extremely high-resolution, high-zoom cameras allow us to capture extreme detail, often including serial and model numbers. We can inspect fasteners, rigging, and support infrastructure prior to a climb. We can identify overheating equipment or cables with our advanced infrared cameras.
Visual bridge inspections that typically require ropes, ladders, scaffolding, cherry-pickers and other rigging, can be done by Asset Drone in a fraction of the time and a fraction of the cost. You can now quickly find trouble areas that need up-close inspection by skilled personnel – allowing you to optimize your workforce deployment.
With exact, photographic quality records and using change-detection software, you can institute precise record-keeping and implement ongoing monitoring programs that compare conditions over time, including movement, damage, additions and repairs.
Railroads and Yard Infrastructure
Get high-resolution photos and video inspection of rail lines, switching infrastructure, yards, cars, engines and other infrastructure to meet your needs. We can access areas that are hard to reach or that would normally require shutdown of the rail section using traditional visual inspection.
All photos are GPS-located to give you precise location of any issues that are found. Perform year-over-year comparisons of critical infrastructure, crossings, rail, switching equipment and other infrastructure.
