Regular asset and infrastructure inspection prevent faults, service interruptions and deterioration of assets caused by neglect. Early detection is particularly important as infrastructure ages.
Australian regulations demand that infrastructure & assets such as wind turbines, dams, solar fields, cooling towers, spillways, sewerage treatment facilities, energy distribution networks, pipelines, telecommunications towers, and other such utilities need to be inspected regularly for safety and safety standards compliance.
Performing asset inspections manually is often a time-consuming and labour-intensive job, that takes up a significant portion of a utility’s operating costs.
Sometimes, a manual inspection of an asset can also be dangerous.
Bridges and overpasses, train lines and even monuments and buildings of historical importance will also require regular inspection especially after a severe weather event or an earthquake.
Canberra's clay bases expansion and contraction during its continuously changing weather conditions moving from extreme cold to extreme heat as well as from wet to dry conditions annually. Also effects building assets and infrastructure more intensely. The ACT also suffers from the occasional earthquake and extreme weather event.
UAV’s or drones cut costs, deliver efficiencies and save time. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) with collision protection and active camera stabilisation for asset inspection provides a number of improvements over traditional inspection methods. Safety, efficiency and data quality are among just some of the obvious benefits.
Digital thermography and high definition imaging and 3D modelling are just some of the applications made accessible through Drones or Remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) operations.
These operations use intelligence from all three methods to provide technical engineers with quantitative and qualitative data. This allows them to facilitate faster decision-making, which reduces maintenance and repair costs of assets, hence extending the useful life of valuable assets and cutting costs associated to do so.
