THERMAL & INFRASTRUCTURE

Under certain conditions a thermal imaging camera can detect moisture ingress and structural issues not normally visible with standard camera inspections. Sub surface defects (such as de-laminations and dis-bonding), stress fractures and voids/inclusions can quickly escalate into catastrophic structural failures if not dealt with early.

WIND TURBINES & UTILITIES

  • Fully Interactive Inspection Reports
  • Geotagged Annotations
  • Damage Severity Classifications
  • Trend Analysis
  • Inspection Summary
  • Operational Insights
  • Cloud Based Data Storage
  • Integration into Existing Work Orders

Our professional RPAS Drone team can quickly and effectively inspect a Wind Turbine, delivering geo-tagged, hi-resolution images of the turbine surfaces (blades, hub, Nacelle, Tower etc.). This provides easy collaborative analysis and image annotations for preventive maintenance plans and trend monitoring.

M210

Drone Inspections require a complete understanding of structural integrity and inspection techniques, together with the skills and experience required to operate near high energy equipment, obstructions and ferrous materials, all of which can have a serious effect on RPAS telemetry and drone safety.

PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS

By incorporating professional Drone services as part of a long-term O&M strategy for grid connected PV arrays, visible light aerial imagery and radiometric thermal mapping can be used to quickly identify defects, as well as changes over time, helping maintain optimum performance and facilitating preventive maintenance measures. The data and imagery from a Drone inspection can also compliment IV curve and insulation resistance data, as part of the IEC/EVS EN62446 PV Power Plant Testing & Verification standards.
