- North Eastern Goldfields
- Drone Asset Inspection
With this inspection traditionally being completed over 5 days, requiring a team of contractors and large crane equipment, significant cost savings were achieved by utilising DJI Industrial Drones, completing the inspection in a few hours.
For the 85 metre stack, HD still, HD video and thermal cameras were selected, with all imagery transmitted live to the engineering team, allowing for immediate feedback on the progress of the inspection. All imagery was recorded and provided as a record for future inspection comparison.
The Drone equipment proved highly capable, with daytime temperatures reaching 46’C, and winds at 25kts.
Other inspections completed on site included the FAT tower, Furnace, HRS tower, Convertor and telecommunications tower.
