Why drones and visual inspection services are so important?

The visual inspection of building structures, power lines, road and rail networks, bridges and communication towers (to name just a few) is critical for safety, insurance, performance and operational purposes. Visual inspections of key assets using drones ensure that these vital infrastructure, transportation links and energy generating systems are operating efficiently and to strict safety guidelines.

Periodic visual inspection of these vital assets using scheduled drone surveys can identify developing issues early. This can allow businesses to schedule repairs and maintenance into other planned operational maintenance plans so that work is carried out at ideal times that minimise disruption. This method of planned inspection has considerable cost saving benefits both to the cost of repairs and to the reduced financial losses through less operational downtime.

For example, a maintenance weld repair on a storm damaged power line support is considerably cheaper than having to construct an entirely new power line support. Scheduled visual inspections of business assets conducted by drone survey offers the best solution to provide this and has been proven to cut costs for businesses time and time again.

Switching to visual inspection using commercial drone surveys can save your business money whilst offering an improved inspection service that is also faster and more reliable. The benefits of using drones for inspection work are well known and as technology advances, our drones are able to fly further, for longer with even more detailed imagery, video and thermal imaging.
