ENGIE Fabricom has for a long time worked on diversifying its services. Drone Services provide products and services with the latest and best technology within unmanned aerial vehicle.

The use of drones for commercial purposes has exploded the last three years. It first started when businesses provided photography and video from drones. But now with the improved stability of drones and better quality of cameras, a number of industrial areas of deployment are being identified.

As a part of diversifying ENGIE Fabricom’s service range we have invested in a drone in order to provide services like inspections and surveying in the oil and gas industry. The use of drones for inspection is both risk and cost reducing, and gives our clients increased quality and broader aspects of inspections.

Our current fleet consists of Falcon 8. It has 8 rotors, which makes it very stable and have a high stay-up capability with redundancy in all components. Falcon 8 can withstand wind speeds up to 15 m/s, and can with help of advanced gimballing and image stabilization achieve remarkable quality of photography and video. In addition we have an infrared camera for thermography, providing indications of gas leaks and overheating etc.
