August 18, 2016 – RoNik Inspectioneering B.V., the leading source for practical, technical content focused on asset integrity in the oil & gas, chemical, petrochemical, and process industries has announced a partnership for the BeNeLux market with Flyability, the commercial drone manufacturer that develops the first collision-tolerant flying robot designed for industrial inspection professionals.

The partnership between the two companies aims at accelerating the use of UAVs in indoor inspections, to help reducing the risks for human interventions and increase the inspections of difficult-to-access places. RoNik Inspectioneering becomes an official distributor of the product Elios of Flyability and a preferred service partner for the BeNeLux market.

By introducing the use of Elios during its missions, RoNik Inspectioneering wants to bring its data capturing capability to the next level. The ability of Elios to inspect confined spaces rapidly is a key advantage that RoNik wants to take advantage of. The drone tolerates collisions, can bump into walls or any other structure, can enter man-holes in dark environments and fly high distances. As the drone can access difficult places just by being guided by a pilot at long distances, it makes the permit-process easier for inspections. It enables the performance at any time, which lower intervention costs for its customers. Typical applications are tankroof-, furnaces-, and cooling tower- inspections.

“Building up our experience over the last years in indoor flying the Elios platform is now the best available solution in the market. Also the feedback from our customers is that this technology will significantly contribute to the new era of industrial inspections” says Marien van den Hoek, CCO at RoNik Inspectioneering B.V.

Flyability, which has launched Elios early this year, sees this partnership with RoNik Inspectioneering as a great opportunity to expand the use of its product on strategic markets. “We are convinced that Elios will bring a significant added-value for the customers of RoNik. We are delighted to work with them to accelerate the introduction of our product on their markets, which represents an important step-forward for us” says Patrick Thévoz, CEO of Flyability.
