Coastal Structures Inspection Constant wave action cause damage to coastal structures over time. Drones are an efficient, more precise way of monitoring these objects.

Inspecting over the ocean is no extra hassle

Structures in and around the water wear down over time due to erosion. Surveying coastal structures is difficult due to their location - but necessary to keep them in good condition. Drones simplify this process, capturing high quality images from a safe distance. As engineers, we understand all structures require a different approach - and tailor our deliverables to your needs.

Hard to reach areas are inspected with ease

An issue when inspecting coastal structures is the difficulty of reaching them. Typical means include boats, which rely on weather conditions. Bad weather puts both personnel and structures at risk. Drones avoid these complications, flying above the water and away from the structures. The distance we fly at doesn't affect the quality of our reports - our drone is equipped with a high resolution camera.

Drones have a wide range of reach, and are able to inspect both wide and tall structures. Piers, docks, and seawalls are inspected efficiently, and the same equipment is required for the entire inspection. With large objects, often getting a wide image of the larger area is essential to determine its condition. Our drone can capture these aerial images, as well as detailed close ups.

One inspection company for all your needs

Engineers With Drones are engineers as well as expert drone pilots. Our reports and inspections are based on our real world industry experience. Piers and offshore platforms often support buildings, machinery, and people, and weak points can cause collapses. We know what to look for when inspecting support structures.

We are also able to take care of any inspections on top of piers or offshore platforms. Buildings, industrial machines, oil/gas structures, we have experience with all types of structures.
