THE Applus+ SOLUTION
Applus+ UAV drone inspections offer unprecedented visual access to hard-to-reach assets such as flare ignition systems and flare stacks. Our UAVs use only the highest-grade professional cameras to ensure that the customer can see exactly what they need to see during the inspection of their asset.
Performing live flare-tip inspections is our speciality and we are able to provide valuable insights into the condition, function and integrity of a gas-flare system at short notice and whilst the processing plant and flare system remain fully operational, thereby helping to prevent major events such as scheduled shutdowns or unusual flaring events .
Applus+ draws on the unique possibilities afforded by UAV technologies to capture a full 360-degree perspective of the asset and use post-processing software to ensure crisp, precise and valuable images are delivered to the client.
Applus+ can provide a scalable level of service starting with basic monitoring of flow rates and flare functionality and going all the way through to CVI-level visual and thermography inspections accompanied by comprehensive inspection reports.
The aerial photographs captured are collated with ground-based images and aerial overview ‘maps’ to facilitate the efficient future use of the data set by anyone who may need to access it.
Applus+ has performed countless safe and effiecient UAV drone inspections of flare tips both onshore and offshore for all of the major oil and gas providers around the world.
