Drone Inspection of Tanks, Silos and Vessels Drone inspections and surveys of tanks and silos all for safer, faster, more detailed reporting.

Faster and more efficient inspections

The traditional inspection and surveying of tanks and silos is a slow and costly operation. Today, drones have revolutionized the process. Tanks and silos can be inspected inside and out in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost, with minimum asset downtime. Engineers With Drones tailors your inspection so the deliverables are exactly what you asked for.

Regular inspections can be done by drone, faster than common methods

Depending on local regulations, tanks and silos need to be inspected every five to 10 years. In the past, these inspections meant that the asset would have to be accessed by rope, cranes or scaffolding. It also meant there was a risk for the people working at heights in confined spaces, and the risk of contamination and damage caused by objects or tools falling into the tanks during inspections.

We complete your inspection much faster than common methods allow. Ensuring you get the information you need, with as little obstacles as possible.

Detect abnormalities before they worsen

Maintenance of tanks will always pose the same problems, whether it's LNG tanks, fresh water tanks, or oil storage tanks; corrosion, weather damage and general wear and tear. Thanks to advances in drone technology, the detection and solution to these issues have become a whole lot easier, faster and safer.

Using the latest technology, our drones can identify areas of thermal abnormalities and cold spots in a fraction of the time of traditional methods, without the labour and time-intensive need for cranes, rope or scaffolding. Our drones allow endless possibilities when it comes to angles and perspectives of your assets, all recorded in crystal clear high-definition.
