Large watercourses, steep or congested terrain can limit the ability to adequately monitor for fluid releases during trenchless construction.
The use of aerial drones for visual and infrared inspection of HDD crossings offers the solution.
CCI’s fleet of drones and licensed pilots can offer inspection services to meet regulatory requirement for inspection, to ensure any environmental impacts are identified and addressed. CCI’s drones may also be utilized for visual records of construction processes and impacts, as well as restoration. Our drones are capable of long flight distances to cover any length of trenchless crossing; CCI’s drones have completed inspection on lake crossings of lengths greater than 15,000 ft.
