Our Technology in use
See examples of how our technology can be put to use in a large range of different applications, and read real life case studies of how we’ve completed successful fully digitized inspections of confined spaces.
Vessel surveys and inspections are a critical part of maintaining efficient modern global trade and prevent harm to people and the environment.
Ensuring that vessels continue to be safe to operate over their lifetime can be an expensive and time-consuming activity with its own inherent risks. Our drone technology provides an alternative to the use of scaffolding and rope access for carrying out internal inspection of vessel cargo tanks and other interior areas.

The culture of Oil & Gas is based on safety first and this is woven into the DNA of the industry.
With increasing cost and time pressures our clients need to find new and innovative ways to meet the demands of the industry without sacrificing the decades of improvements in safety culture. Our drone technology is a key tool in minimizing the need to send people into hazardous areas to carry out asset integrity inspections. The unlimited flight time capabilities means that you are not limited in your visual coverage of the assets.
Our industrial society depends not just on the development of new infrastructure, but also the inspection and maintenance of existing assets.
Failure in infrastructure assets can be catastrophic and lead to loss of human life and significant costs to repair and recover. Our drone technology can be your tool to inspect and track the long-term condition of your assets, enabling you to use data to identify problems before they materialize.
Silos, elevators, and bins are commonly used to store commodities such as grain, food products, cement, and other bulk materials.
These assets often need to be regularly visually inspected for corrosion and other structural anomalies. With a large number of these types of assets, our drone technology can provide a quicker and more flexible solution for both general and detailed inspections of the internal structure.
With the need to ensure continuous and stable power to billions around the world, new inspection and maintenance technologies are key to safeguard facility operations.
Our drone technology can act as a force multiplier in power facilities where manning levels are usually minimal. An increasing drive towards renewables is also opening new opportunities to build in autonomous technologies at an early stage.
Port facilities around the world enable global trade and provide a necessary buffer to shocks in the supply and demand for many commodities.
Therefore, inspection and maintenance of these assets contribute an important insurance against risk to global trade. Our drone technology is compact and can be made available at site for easy deployment. The remote viewing capabilities minimizes the need for quality assurance inspectors to be present on site or enter the confined space.
