Drone Uses at Solid Waste Disposal Facilities

2020-06-27T10:21:56+00:00Categories: Aerial Inspection and Survey, Aerial Thermal Imaging|Tags: , , , , , |

Drone flights over solid waste landfill sites are fast becoming accepted as an efficient way to conduct surveys over terrain that is often difficult and/or dangerous to navigate on foot. Couple this with the fact that you can put a drone in the sky for a lot less of a financial outlay than an airplane and making the most of this relatively new technology just makes good commercial sense.

Old 1950 Landfill Site Thermal Imaging Inspection

2020-06-03T17:14:11+00:00Categories: Aerial Inspection and Survey, Aerial Thermal Imaging|Tags: , , , , , , |

The build-up of gases such as methane in landfill sites is a common problem for councils & landowners, particularly if the land is identified for development. Drilling boreholes to relieve the gas build-up, along with 'flash burning' the methane is a significant undertaking, so the identification of the heat spots and potential underground fires is critical. The use of drones to complete the survey and land inspection using thermal [...]
