Drones for Inspection
Increase time, safety and cost efficiencies with integrated drone solutions for inspection operations.
Drones are revolutionising the way that industrial inspections are conducted, making day-to-day operations faster, safer and more cost-effective when compared to traditional inspection methods. However, as the adoption of drones and UAV technology continues to grow across all corners of the globe, there is still a certain hesitation among businesses of all sizes to embrace the potential and take those first steps to a brighter future. Certainly, when it comes to areas such as aerial inspections, there’s never been a better or easier time to get yourself airborne and learn to appreciate the many benefits that an aerial solution can bring.
We’re seeing more and more case studies showcasing vastly increased efficiency from using a drone solution over traditional methods. Severn Trent Water saved £750,000 in their first year after introducing a drone team to their operation. Project times are now counted in days rather than weeks, the amount and quality of data is increased, and smaller crews are required – although we should note that drones don’t need to replace people, they simply give those already employed a better tool to do the job (so those people not out in the field can be back in the office working through the results!).
See The Elios 2 In Action - Live Inspection In The Roof
Discover the deep dark depths of the Dunchurch Park Hotel roofing system at our live demo event in Rugby on the 5th of March 2020. We’ll be showcasing Elios 2 as it utilises its unique specifications to navigate the venue roof.
Don’t miss out – this is the only event to showcase the capabilities of the Elios 2 drone free of charge in the UK.
Severn Trent Water saved £750,000 using drones
Severn Trent Water were looking to improve their utility inspection processes by incorporating a drone fleet into the business. Coptrz helped introduce an internal drone team to the business which helped save £750,000 in their first year.
Frequently Asked Questions
What training do I need?
In order to be able to use a drone commercially, you will first need to obtain your permission for
commercial operations (PfCO), or hire a pilot who is qualified. This is a legal requirement in the UK, governed by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and actively enforced by the police.
COPTRZ PfCO courses take place over 3-4 days, at one of our 10 training centres, spread across the UK. If you have a team of budding drone pilots, we can also arrange our training at your own facilities!
