What are drone inspections? With technology moving forward every year, more and more traditional industry practices are becoming unnecessary. Sometimes, even obsolete due to avoidable safety risks and duration times. This is because new, safer and more convenient methods are becoming accessible. One such method is the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or ‘Drones,’ for commercial onsite inspections. This replaces previous unsafe methods of inspecting assets at great heights or hard to access locations.
Recognising this industry innovation, Stormwater Sydney has purchased and registered a commercial drone to conduct onsite asset inspections. These assets include tanks, rooftops, gutters, eaves-box systems, downpipes and any other assets that would previously require height work. Along with exposure to potential risks, not to mention the time it takes to get up and inspect these devices.
With our drone, we are able to capture crystal clear images and footage in 4K. With high-quality zoom functionality that enable us to see more than we ever could before. All without wasting time or putting our specialists at risk of any physical harm. We also provide our clients with a higher degree of evidence and observation in our inspection reports. As we’re able to provide all the media taken from the drone and send it directly to the client electronically.
Our Stormwater specialists who pilot our drones are trained in remote piloting under government rules and regulations. Our staff are certified with an official commercial RPA license from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
