Offshore Inspections can be a costly and disruptive inspection service that, while necessary, usually requires a specialist team or personnel, safety equipment, support boats, scaffolding, rope access and more. However with aerial drones, offshore inspections can now be carried out more effectively, more quickly and for a reduced cost whilst offering minimum disruption to ongoing schedules.  The real cost savings of using aerial drones for offshore inspections and backed up by improved health and safety, faster inspection results and a reduced risk of human life.

At Balmore Aerial Services, we have proudly added the AscTec Falcon 8 UAV to our fleet of aerial drones. The AscTec Falcon 8 has joined us as a primary member of our offshore inspection service thanks to its strong construction and build quality that can survive the harsher environments that can be found in offshore rigs and platforms.



Offering unprecedented precision flying with a reliable high performance GPS system and control unit, the AscTec Falcon 8 is a great addition to our drone fleet and one that allows us to offer a stronger service for offshore use.

The key benefits of the AscTec Falcon 8 are:

3x Redundant Flight Control for maximum safety
2D & 3D waypoint navigation for greater coverage of areas for inspection
360º spherical or cylindrical panos
Point of Interest (POI) Imaging and Circle of Interest (COI) Imaging
Quick/Efficient data and imaging processing
Direct Control of telemetry and imaging

Manufactured in Germany, we use the AscTec Falcon 8 to provide key inspection services to customers across England & Scotland with strong success in providing aerial drone inspections for customers in the offshore industry.
