Ships, Pipes & Concrete
Regular inspection of ageing infrastructures such as wind turbines, bridges, silos, storage tanks, ship hulls, and pipes are crucial to maintaining their performance and safety with minimum capital outlay. These inspections are often in difficult to reach areas and require placement of sensors in contact with the structure to gather more information about the material thickness and the internal structural integrity.
Non-Destructive Testing as these examinations are called, typically require rope access teams, the building of scaffoldings or crane trucks, which is costly, time-consuming and exposes workers to hazards. Furthermore, this laborious inspections often lead to a significant downtime of the plant and thus cause further costs.
Voliro’s fully actuated unique drone truly brings “Hands in the Sky”. It enables to exert forces and moments in all directions, making physical interaction with the environment reliable, robust and stable. Voliro can offer visual, thermal and contact-based Non-Destructive Testing inspection of elevated structures. We offer a safer, faster and cheaper solution to perform industrial assets inspection and monitoring.
