Underdeck aerial surveys and inspections carried out by high tech drones.

Offering crystal clear inspection video and imaging data along with thermal imaging that can offer a more accurate and detailed inspection alternative to conventional inspection methods. Using drone surveys for under deck oil platforms can also offer significant cost savings over conventional underdeck surveys.

At Balmore Inspection Services, we are an award winning drone survey provider that operates a fleet of the latest specification aerial drones. All of which are piloted by professional full time drone pilots that are fully accredited, insured and certified for inspection and surveys of under deck platforms in the oil and gas sector.

Vision Sensor Technology

We use aerial drones that incorporate the very latest in vision sensor technology. This technology does not rely on satellite GPS systems like conventional drones do. By offering vision sensor technology, this allows our highly trained and skilled drone pilots to perform underdeck surveys without relying on GPS systems that can struggle to maintain a direct signal whilst under deck. Not only does this mean that the drone can fly more stable and reliably but it can also reach and survey difficult access locations on an oil platform so that they can be captured with ease.

The aerial inspection services on oil and gas rigs by Balmore Inspection provides video footage directly underdeck of an offshore fixed or floating installation in the north sea of Scotland. These video and photography surveys can focus on areas of interest underdeck that require maintenance. We can inspect underdeck areas of interest that would usually require large scaffolding and rope access services to reach. These types of aerial survey can save significant sums of money both in man power, down time and health and safety risks. A typical inspection of the underdeck of an offshore fixed or floating rig can be done in days rather than the potential weeks required for a scaffolding team that includes all the equipment, trained personnel and safety equipment. Our aerial surveys can be carried out quickly and easily with minimum disruption and the video and photography footage can be archived for future use and reference.aerial underdeck surveys using drone surveys
