Energy facilities such as oil and gas, solar panels, etc. require unique solutions for conducting inspections. DJI, expert in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology has partnered with Shell Oil Company to create, test and deploy DJI drone technology at Shell’s Deer Park Manufacturing Complex to improve efficiency and worker safety during industrial inspections and emergency incident response.
This is one of Shell’s largest facilities which exceeds the height of 250 feet off the ground. Now DJI will be able to receive valuable first-hand insight into the complexities of deploying drone technology at a world-class refinery, and co-develop new product features like AI Spot-Check that will allow Shell and other innovative energy companies to use drones to safely and easily conduct required inspections of critical infrastructure.
The Shell Deer Park drone team already adopted DJI drones in 2016 to reduce the need to work at height while improving safety and cutting the cost of inspections in the process, according to uasweekly.com.
