Challenges Facing the Environmental and Energy Sectors

Big Costs

The energy industry is a billion-dollar operation that requires costly equipment and manpower for installation and repairs.

Limited Inspection Capabilities

Site surveying and equipment monitoring is costly and limited. There are considerations that engineers could not assess on their own from the ground.

High Risks

The nature of energy operations is high-risk, involving sometimes life-threatening situations for personnel.

Equipment Maintenance

The equipment necessary to provide energy and usable electricity to people is always in need of inspection or repair.

Inefficiency In Operations

Manual repairs and surveys can take lengthy amounts of time to remediate and assess.

Custom Drone Solutions for the Environmental and Energy Sectors


Mining companies use Draganfly drones and photogrammetric sensors to conduct volumetric measurements and track inventory.

Oil and Gas

Oil and Gas companies use Draganfly drones to inspect infrastructure, locate damaged or fatigued components, conduct environmental impact studies, and leverage multispectral sensors to measure foliage encroachments near infrastructure.

Site Inspections

Draganfly drones are able to aerially assess sites and vegetation for installation or power plants and send back data analysis in real-time to production engineers. They can also inspect equipment, such as highly pressurized offshore rigs.

Draganlfy dones are also being used for validation of installations, security assessments, monitoring of resources, and monitoring of workers. They are also deployed to assess the full reach of power outages, during a catastrophic event.

Electric and Renewable Energy

Electric and Renewable Energy companies use Draganfly drones to perform infrastructure inspections required for preventative maintenance, minimizing man-hours and downtime while improving safety.

Mining; Soil and Mineral Samples

The mining industry operates through a sequence of stages: exploration, discovery, development, production and reclamation. Mineral samples are able to be transported for quality testing within minutes, saving time and reducing cost. Additionally Draganfly’s delivery drone is able to fly a multiple array of sensors capturing vital data during the five phases of mine development.

Wind Turbine Inspections

Pilots can gain quick access to turbines and capture high-pixel quality images, allowing users to inspect the state of the blades. 3D images can be generated so that engineers and operators can get a better view of damages, erosion, or cracks without the need to temporarily turn the turbine off. Advanced analytics can provide accurate and real-time results about changes or repairs that need to be made.

Solar Energy

Sophisticated drone software can help find the best spots for solar panel placement. Algorithms determine solar panel placement and factor in dozens of considerations that engineers would not. In addition, thermal and infrared imagery cameras allow drones to assess the productivity of solar panels.

Industrial Delivery

The flexibility of supply and inventory cost savings can be achieved through the use Draganfly delivery drones, enabling vital components to be delivered from centralized stocks within minutes to maintain uninterrupted production.

The use of a drone allows for a quicker delivery time of these parts to the field, saving time and dramatically reducing the cost of equipment downtime.

Offshore Delivery

Draganfly's UAVs can be deployed quickly and easily to transport critical supplies, equipment, and samples between offshore rigs and onshore facilities, without the need for costly and time-consuming manned missions. Drones can navigate challenging offshore environments with ease, delivering payloads safely and efficiently, even in adverse weather conditions.

Extreme Terrain Delivery

Draganfly’s Extreme Terrain delivery allows for easy, seamless transport of essential equipment into hard-to-reach areas.

Power Line

Fly in highly energized, GPS denied and obstacle-rich environments to inspect transmission, substation, and distribution networks. Draganfly Mapping systems allow for quick and complete acquisition of data while eliminating manned airborne or on-the-ground logistics.

“Draganfly’s proven leadership working with global military and government agencies has allowed us to scale and rapidly deploy important technology solutions. As we move forward, drones and autonomous technology will continue to be an increasingly important part of ensuring public safety.”
