Remote Site Surveys & Inspections

Remote access to difficult environments

Sites such as offshore wind projects, solar arrays, and tall constructions can be difficult and expensive to access, often having to send teams to work at height, use rope access or to hire cranes and helicopters.

Costs can easily spiral and safety inspections can be less than effective.

Real time images and specialist data


Steel River Consultants use a remote-operated drone equipped with a high quality video camera to conduct remote site surveys & inspections which provide real time images, high resolution photographs and specialist data.

The drone can access previously unreachable locations and can cover large areas, eliminating and reducing the risks associated with traditional methods of surveying and inspecting.

Our operators are fully licensed to fly drones in various environments.

Steel River Consultants’ drone can carry out multifunctional tasks such as checking for cracks in turbine blades or aerial surveys of solar panel arrays. Our clients save money and gather highly effective information.
