Flyability Elios performs the inspection of a storage tank at Vopak Netherlands

[ November 23rd, 2016] Ronik Inspectioneering, one of our partner in the Netherlands, has performed the inspection of storage tank for Royal Vopak N.V. a Dutch company that stores and handles various oil and natural gas-related products. The use of Elios, which can bounce off walls and fly where no other drone can, was judge a game changer for industrial inspection by the end customer.

 

“We used to climb down, had to arrange all kinds of safety measures for people, and had to light up lamps to do the inspection. Now we can use the drone, which saves us an enormous amount of time, but also lowers the risk of sending people down there” says Jan Zandberg Vopak representative. “We now inspect the whole tank in about two hours. In earlier days, people had to go down, all kinds of precautions had to be made. This cost days.”


“This technology has just stared, we see huge advantages to using this technique in the future. It will become a mainstream technology, I’m absolutely convinced of that.”
