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 imaging payloads is a new technological development and access to all through Drone Media Imaging. Using the latest in drone thermal imaging camera sensors such as the Zenmuse XTr radiometric, we are ready to deploy anywhere in the UK to carry out ground inspections, like the one recently completed at the Festival Gardens in Liverpool.
Drone Media Imaging are fully qualified and certified by the CAA to fly drone day or night up to 25kg. We hold Operational Authorities and Operating Safety Cases so that we can fly close to uninvolved people. We also hold A2 CofC certification. We are also trained and experienced in Photogrammetry, Mapping and hold a category 2 Thermography qualification
