Darkwing Aerials recently won a 2-year contract with a telecommunications company to perform Visual inspection, 3D Modelling & Technical site surveys on tower structures throughout South Africa.
The DWA Industrial team was deployed to a refinery near Cape Town, the project brief was to look for hotspots on 5 fares, including all the piping from the furnaces leading to the flares.
The team inspected all 5 flares and piping in between in 2 days, the client was blown away with the speed and accuracy of the inspection.
Equipment used was:
XT2 640 duo Thermal camera
We were asked to assist a client to inspect 40 wind turbines to look for damages to the blades, our crew inspected and reported on 4-6 turbines per day with the M210 Z30 zoom camera. The project went well and the client was impressed by the number of turbines covered per day and the detail in the images on the report.
