ROV’s are particularly useful in situations where divers lives would be at an unacceptable risk due to environmental (temperature, depth, duration), biological (marine predators, toxic algae), or chemical factors.
Drone technology allows inspectors to fly an unmanned helicopter to assess the area in need of inspection with real-time video surveillance. The camera equipment that’s mounted to the drone flyer has the ability to take high-resolution video or stills without risk of injury to the inspector.
Demolishing a nuclear cooling tower is no small feat. The sheer size and age of the structure requires a deeper inspection to assess for erosion, hazardous materials, and structural integrity. This is the challenge that faced the Sopreco team when assessing three towers scheduled for demolition in Metz, France. To ensure the safe, accurate inspection of these cooling giants, they decided to use a LiDAR-equipped drone solution.
It’s a simple truth: industrial inspections, like roof inspections, power line inspections, and flare stack inspections, can be time consuming and many times, difficult to complete.
