Inspection of stacks and flares is known to be challenging for a number of reasons:
Exposure to high temperatures
Exposure to SOx/ H2S
Difficulty in inspecting the top section of a chimney stack given the height
Using UAVs for inspection was investigated and deemed to be by far the preferred method for addressing these issues.
To undertake its first piece of work in Singapore, Cyberhawk secured the necessary flight permissions from the aviation authority as well as additional approvals from the local airforce.
