Drones Are Transforming
Aerial Inspection

TRADITIONAL ROPE BASED INSPECTION CREWS WILL SOON BE A THING OF THE PAST

Wind Turbines require regular inspection to operate safely and efficiently. Regular inspections lower costs, reduce blade failures and help to avoid down time. SKYFLEX is one of the market pioneers leading the transformation from high risk, climbing inspection crews to aerial wind turbine blade inspections using sophisticated drone technology.

REDUCE INSPECTION TIME. IMPROVE SAFETY. GET BETTER DATA.

SKYFLEX’s drone inspection solutions are at least 4 times faster than traditional climbing and inspection methods. Keeping climbing inspection crews on the ground avoids hazardous heights and significantly improves safety. High definition images and videos allow for real time identification of potential problems and provide an auditable maintenance archive of valuable data.

Drone Roof Inspections & Building Envelope Inspections[/mk_ornamental_title]

Regardless of building type, the building’s envelope comprising its roof and façade performs the function of keeping the building’s interior dry, temperature regulated and safe.

The building’s envelope is the first line of defense to the integrity of the asset.  Inspection schedules will vary depending upon jurisdiction, it is generally recommended that inspection of a building’s roof be performed at least annually or after extreme weather events.

A planned, frequent, efficient and safe aerial inspection program of roof or façade reduce both cost and risk over the lifecycle of the building.  Deterioration that is identified early can be rectified early, at lower cost and before catastrophe.

Drone Based Inspections for Oil & Gas and Petrochemical Infrastructure

Oil and Gas Industrial Inspections Overview

Less than 1% of the US workforce is employed in the oil and gas industry, yet it accounts for 10% of all workplace fatalities. 

We are dedicated to solve this problem and make workplace safer for your company. By using Drone based NDT/NDE Inspection technology, we are able to collect drone data from inaccessible or dangerous sites while keep the inspector’s feet on the ground, and delivering analytic actionable insights quickly to the expert’s desktop.

The management of any infrastructure storing is governed by strict inspection and maintenance schedules. SKYFLEX inspection services enable asset owner’s certainty of compliance and efficient targeting of maintenance practices; all without ceasing plant operations, and minimizing health and safety risks to members of their team.

Our Industrial Inspection Services:

  • Drone based NDT inspection and preventive maintenance of gas and oil infrastructure for corrosion, leaks and other anomalies
  • Aerial structural and thermal inspection of refineries and plants without requiring plant shutdowns
  • Improved worker safety by helping inspector and employees away from dangerous inspection areas

Oil Refinery and Fuel Storage Tanks Inspections

  • Simultaneously collecting and delivering both digital photography and thermal imagery. Empowering the inspection engineer to undertake inspection activities while remaining on the ground.
  • Identifying issues such as water accumulation, solar loading and areas that are potentially susceptible to rust and corrosion.
  • Visual inspection of tanks is typically required on a monthly, annual or 5 year cycles.  We are usually able to collect drone inspections data from across an entire tank farm in less than 1 day.

Flare Stacks and Chimneys Inspections

  • Minimizing the requirement for rope access and scaffolding to identify cracks and anomalies.
  • Inspecting the integrity of safety railings and stairs on chimneys, flare stacks and tanks before crews carry out maintenance work.

Oil & Gas Pipeline Monitoring and Preventive Maintenance

  • Delivering drone Inspection services that help oil and gas engineers to isolate indicators of rust and corrosion around the circumference of a pipeline.
  • Deploying thermal imaging systems and delivering data analytics to inspection engineers that can be used to infer the distribution of natural gas through a piping system.
  • Providing your inspector with spatial analytics and measurements that enable your staff to understand the risk from the natural environment along your network, such as river encroachment on pipelines.
