drone photography


Until recently, trying to determine what maintenance was required to repair your flare was difficult unless you had an excellent set of binoculars! But now, with the growing popularity of drones, we can fly over live flare tip areas to more easily assess conditions.

In fact, by using a small, high-resolution thermal or HD camera attached to the underside of the drone, it is now possible to take pictures and video of the flare in operation months before your actual Turnaround. Then information gathered by the drone can be reviewed, analyzed and provide your engineers with the tools to determine required flare tips repairs.

And it's perfectly safe. The drone's GPS control facilitates fully automated approaches for specified check points and collision protection with active camera stabilization.

With a vision of what can be accomplished with this new technology, Rainbow Riggers Ltd is pleased to introduce drone technology to our specialty services. We've already received significant positive feedback on our remote drone inspections.

And our drone is suited for a variety of applications.
