Cyberhawk signs global teaming agreement to provide UAV asset inspections

April 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Cyberhawk, a world leader in drone inspection technologies and visualization software for UAV data, has signed a global teaming agreement with John Zink Hamworthy Combustion (JZHC), a world-leading authority on flares, burners and emissions control and a pioneer in smart combustion solutions, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Cyberhawk will be supporting JZHC with aerial inspections of industrial assets and comprehensive inspection reporting worldwide. JZHC and Cyberhawk inspection engineers will collaborate to analyze and assess all integrity aspects of UAV flare inspection data, with JZHC providing operational, remediation and/or replacement recommendations. A complete and comprehensive report will be presented to the customer following each inspection. 

JZHC designs some of the worlds most advanced flaring and combustion systems. Decades of research and development are incorporated into every flare design to provide unsurpassed reliability, safety, efficiency and cost effectiveness. With the advent of safer, more reliable live UAV flare inspections over the last decade, operators now expect to see aerial solutions offered as part of these solutions.

Since completing the first drone flare inspection in 2010, Cyberhawk is the only global UAV inspection company which has inspected more than 800 flares, consisting of both onshore and offshore, in over 30 countries.

Over the last decade, the use of drones for industrial asset inspections has grown significantly. The ability to inspect in-service flares can eliminate millions of dollars of OPEX from a companys bottom line. Detection and monitoring of changes to an operational flare system could potentially avoid future unplanned shutdowns because of the early detection. These dollars can be better served through upgrading systems and/or designing preventative UAV inspection programs.

The safety risks presented by traditional access methods are also eliminated, including working at significant heights and in a potentially hazardous industrial environment.

While using drone-mounted cameras to capture detailed visual and thermal data, typical components inspected include the flare tip, pilot burners, stack, ladders, platforms, molecular seal and steam lines. The imagery obtained is analyzed and recommendations are provided. This lends to better maintenance planning and decision-making processes for the customer. For instance, preparing accurate turnaround workscopes and supporting scheduling and the sourcing of labor.

Cyberhawk has teamed-up with JZHC to provide expert analysis of flare inspection imagery. JZHCs decades of experience in flare solutions will enhance Cyberhawks already world class inspection reports. In many cases, the inspection imagery can indicate operational anomalies. By analyzing Cyberhawks imagery, JZHC may be able to identify and recommend proactive actions to mitigate operational issues before they result in punitive regulatory action.
