Terra Drone’s small-unmanned aircraft (drones) are capable to reach places that are difficult, expensive, dangerous, ‘live’ or even impossible to approach by manned inspection teams. With different size drones Terra Drone can inspect indoor, onshore and offshore installations and objects in many different environments.Visual Drone inspection offer a very cost effective and quick alternative for the traditional manned inspections by scaffolding, crane or rope access which are dangerous, time consuming and costly. With drones as platform, a range of remote sensors can be put into position close to the object or installation to be inspected.
Terra Drone has several in-house qualified inspectors (ISO 9712 NDT Visual Testing Level 2) or works with various inspection companies to deliver an official inspection report. This way a valuable insight in the asset’s condition is provided enabling our clients to make calculated operational and maintenance decisions without or limiting the turn around or shutdown period. This is all executed in a quick, safe and cost effective manner.
Terra Drone Europe has safety as its core value in all our drone inspections. The company is certified according to the Dutch VCA safety management system and works according to the OSHAS 18001 principles. By placing an emphasis on safety we have clients in the oil and gas and heavy industry.
In addition Terra Drone Europe is certified for its quality management system under the ISO 9001:2015 norm.
We use up to 36 MP cameras to capture stunning high-resolution data in order to visualise and detect the smallest suspected details on site without the need for shutting down the operation. Infra Red imagery offers further insight into heat leakage, insulation problems or the detection of potential combustion sources.
In addition to the visual or infrared photography we are specialised in measuring from images using photogrammetry. This allows us not only to make a defect such as a crack visible but also to measure its size.
Our inspection services are performed as regular, calamity or pre-maintenance inspections in for instance the on- and offshore wind energy and oil & gas industry. Also in many other industries we inspect installations, buildings, chimneys, windturbine blades, telecom- or high voltage pylons.

Terra Drone uses a fully automated platform for the drone inspection of wind turbine blades. Besides the data acquisition also the analysis is fully automatic using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
