DJM Aerial Solutions Have Recently Invested Heavily Into The UAV Market, Keeping Them At The Top Of The Industry Locally. Their Recent £25,000 Equipment Investment Ensuring Their Position As One Of The Leading Most Diverse UAV Service Companies In The UK.
DJM Aerial Solutions have recently experienced steady growth in the North East area around the Middlesbrough and Stockton on Tees areas.
Managing Director of the growing North East UAV Service Company Dan Maine is no stranger to heavy industry and inspection and survey techniques with over 2 decades of practical and analytical engineering experience. The latter being within the Oil and Gas industry. The North East Entrepreneur decided to invest in the emerging market after a personal interest in UAV technology and their ability to acquire data remotely reducing the risk and time associated with manned survey methods and essentially reducing costs.
“there are currently thousands of UAV pilots that hold their PfCO which is fine and great for the growth of the market, however, the majority of these PfCO holders stem from a photography/videography background or even hobbyists, with no real experience in stepping into the industrial sector and providing the client with useable data. Some are attempting to achieve this using consumer-grade drone technology. The client must be vigilant in choosing their respective UAV Service Company ensuring that the equipment used in a high-risk environment is up to the job with the required number of safety redundancies.”
DJM Aerial Solutions familiar with the importance of not only attaining the ability and experience to execute the project in the given timescale but also the ability to understand what it is they are looking at through the eyes of their equipment but also how to establish and recognise any faults and defective issues.
With the experience and logic, Dan was bringing to the table the decision was made to invest heavily in the industry standard equipment. With minimal business experience, it was a risk to take but extremely calculated.
Storage Tank / Ducting Inspection
DJM Aerial Solutions now own an enviable fleet of industry-leading UAVs and payloads which they use as an extension of their own ability in the field. With the most recent purchase of the collision tolerant Flyability Elios designed and developed around the importance of confined space survey and the risks associated with manned confined space survey and storage tank inspection.
Dan, once heavily involved in tank surveys and confined space entry during his time working at sea recognised a gap in the market and decided to purchase the Flyability Elios in attempt to not only compete with industry leaders in the UAV Service industry but also to relieve any pressure points in the confined space survey sector.
“I have on numerous occasions been involved with confined space entry and storage tank inspection and vessel inspections in an offshore environment. It’s an arduous task with plenty of risk surrounding it no matter how much mitigation you apply to the project, you never know whats around the corner. Hundreds are killed every year performing confined space tasks. Generally due to pockets of toxic gas that have not been dispersed during air displacement prior to entry. Gas monitors are provided but it’s generally too late some gasses such as H2S can render a fit person unconscious with one normal breath. Obviously, time to remove them from the area is crucial and generally unachievable. At DJM Aerial Solutions we understand that confined space inspections are dangerous and most people don’t enjoy it, we hope to relieve not only the issue around manned inspection but also speed up the inspection process using the Flyability Elios”
Collision Tolerant Flyability Elios
The Flyability Elios is the leading Confined space survey UAV on the market not only is it used for regular storage tank inspection but is also small enough that it can be sent into waste gas outlets to carry out targeted ducting inspection with a view to survey on any unwanted debris which is again generally a manned inspection technique. The Elios at 750mm diameter is the ideal tool for internal pipework inspection and survey, ducting inspection and survey, waste gas outlet and exhaust inspection.
The Flyability Elios comes equipped with its own thermal camera and standard RGB so can be utilised not only for confined space inspection and ducting inspection but also for search and rescue or reconnaissance of dangerous and dilapidated buildings prior to entry. The Flyability Elios is by far an exceptional UAV that allows DJM Aerial Solutions scaleability in the North East region.
