Due to the presence of corrosive gases, the structures and assets inside the treatment plant are especially exposed to corrosion, cracks, and rapid structural degradation. It is therefore important to perform frequent and regular inspection of the assets. Areas of particular concern are e.g. bolts attached to the ceiling as well as the bolts and wires that secure the ventilation system.
Normally, photos are taken with a handheld camera to record findings or areas of interest within the facility. One of the problems of such photos of specific details is that it is difficult to know exactly at which location in the treatment plant they were captured. It becomes even more difficult to effectively communicate this inspection information onwards to other interested persons.
