Soar Environmental Consulting offers UAV environmental inspections that fulfill many inspection requirements, such as those for penstock and pipeline inspections.
Unmanned Aerial inspections have several advantages over traditional inspection utilizing a team of individuals:
1. Access Remote or Impassable Areas
Our Unmanned Aerial pilots are trained to easily access remote or hard-to-reach areas within your Right-of-ways.
Be it mountain top or desert floor, the Soar pilots can access the area with our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) allowing for Real-time visual inspections coupled with video recording to meet regulatory requirements.
2. Higher Safety With UAV Environmental Inspections
Assets often times span over areas where terrain is unstable, vertical, or simply dangerous for foot travel. Additionally, field inspections leave your employees vulnerable to extreme temperature changes, altitude sickness, heat stroke or frost bite. Our pilots can access these areas without risk of injury or issue, leaving your workers uninjured, invigorated and ready for the next day’s work!
3. Cost Effectiveness
Teams of officials, employees and contractors are often required to conduct field inspections for days or weeks at a time. Unmanned aerial inspections are more timely, more efficient and more safe than pounding the ground or climbing mountain faces. Factoring in planning & scheduling, safety meetings, mileage, recovered man-hours, potential down time due to injury, potential worker’s compensation savings, and the intangible consideration of keeping your employees injury-free, our system becomes quite cost-effective. Let Soar pilots conduct your inspections so you can focus on what’s important.
4. Meet Regulatory Requirements- Exceed expectations!
Fines for noncompliance of regulatory policy can range from $3,000.00/ day and climb into the millions of dollars per incident for gross negligence. The Soar inspection teams will create a comprehensive inspection schedule to meet requirements, provide video footage for historical archives, write final reports and submit required documents to ensure you meet regulatory requirements and your business reputation exceeds expectations. UAV technology provides an efficient manner to meet a company’s inspection schedule and remain in compliance with the license, permit, or operating procedures that are required by law.
UAV Environmental Inspections can provide video and images for reports, archival purposes, and documentation requirements as well as time-lapse presentations where engineers and project managers can measure changes in spalling, coating deterioration, or foundation condition over multiple years. UAV Environmental Inspections are accepted by most regulatory agencies as historical documentation and proof of inspection.
