The cost of inspection across the wind, nuclear and transmission and distribution sectors is more than halved by using drones when compared with more labour intensive access methods, such as scaffolding or rope access. Cyberhawk clients have reported savings of up to 300%.
Complex onshore and offshore environments require experienced pilots and inspectors. Using drones avoids the requirement to work at height, in confined spaces and in generally hazardous areas.
Through automation and highly skilled pilots, Cyberhawk has halved inspection times for clients operating in the wind, nuclear and transmission and distribution sectors. This not only means reduced costs, but also results in improved scheduling and personnel spending less time in hazardous environments.
Drones present customers with a powerful screening tool; assets and equipment can be quickly reviewed by the drone, with the data captured used to identify where further inspection, contact NDT and maintenance is required.
iHawk offers modules specifically for wind turbines and powerlines, as well as solutions to monitor chimneys, cooling towers, nuclear domes and other types of assets. The data presented in iHawk uses a traffic light status to show defect severity, along with detailed imagery of problem areas. For powerlines, tablets can be used in the field and the iHawk Maintenance module allows work order to be initiated and tracked.
