Roof inspection & facade inspection

A drone can gather a lot of information by flying over a building and it only takes a few minutes. Besides it being faster, it's also much safer than sending someone up to inspect the condition.

With a drone we can check the overall condition of the roof and the building itself:

Thermal inspection

Using a thermal camera, we can easily inspect your building for water leaks, water damage, cold-bridges, problems with insulation and so on.

If we fly over your roof after the sun has set the water will maintain a higher temperature than the roof so it will glow up on our screen and we'll know exactly where you have a water leak.  

The same principles apply when inspecting the insulation of a building. If the temperature outside is different from the temperature inside, we can detect where the warmth is escaping the building in no time.

Solar panel inspection

Besides checking if your solar panels need to be cleaned, we can use thermal inspection to see if the solar panels work as they should.

By flying over the solar panels with a thermal camera we can search for solar cells which aren't functioning properly because these cells have a different temperature. This method allows you to only swap or repair the malfunctioning solar cells, not the whole solar panel. Besides it being more cost efficient, it also reduces the amount of waste materials. 

Industrial inspections

Wind turbine inspection

With advanced zoom cameras we can now inspect wind turbines from a safe distance. There's no need to come closer than 10m in order to read the serial number on the blades. Using these cameras, we can check for corrosion, missing bolts, excess oil and so on. 

Besides the normal visual inspection, we can also use a thermal camera to control the heating on the blades and to check if there's no friction damaging the components.

Pipeline inspection

Using the same techniques as mentioned above we can check for leaks, corrosion, and erosion. A drone can quickly scan several km's of pipeline, where a human needs much more time to walk around both sides of the pipeline.

It's also possible to send a drone inside these pipes or inside a big tank. As long as the entry hole is larger than 50 cm, we can inspect it from the inside. 

Power line inspection & antenna inspection

Power lines and big antennas are a hazardous environment for us humans and they can't always be shut down in order to climb in. That's where a drone can make a difference. If we use a zoom camera, we can look for errors (loose cables, rusty bolts, ...) from a safe distance. 

Around power lines it might be useful to do a thermal inspection as well. Thermal imaging allows us to scan for heated, malfunctioning components.

Bridge inspection

Bridges, or more specific, the pillars under a bridge become easy to reach with a drone. There's no need to climb down from the top or get under the bridge with a boat, a drone gets a clear, close-up view of what's underneath the bridge in minutes. With the improved effeciency it allows you to cut costs on inspecting the bridge which allows you to spend more on maintenance.

How does it work?

When you reach out to us, we first try to understand exactly what you want, what you need and how we can help you in the most efficient way. If we know what we need to do and what equipment we need, we do a quick check on the location to see if there are any hazards or obstacles which may be a problem during the inspection.

After the inspection is done, we send you a detailed report with pictures showing you what we saw and where we saw it. This allows you to get the right tools or people and immediately tackle the issues we found.
