Aerial Inspections and Volumetrics for Power Generation Plants

Customized power plant inspections reduce hazardous manhours during maintenance activities while providing accurate and cost-effective structural defect inspections and volumetric inventory analysis.


Comprehensive, high-resolution imagery helps to identify damage on stacks or cooling towers and other adjacent structures.


Thermal imagery of expansion joints shows abnormally hot and cold spots along ductwork, where anomalies may be present.


Close-up, high-resolution video and stills inside gas power plant boilers show anomalies such as deformed air nozzles, gas nozzles, igniters, cracks, and missing refractory coatings.

High-resolution JPEG images of the right, left and backsides of pipe hangers identify damage, view load indicators, and prevent costly scaffold building.


Images captured from dense grid pattern flights produce a point cloud and a digital surface model to estimate volumes in stockpiles.
