Terra Drone UAV Aids in Power Plant Inspection

Terra Drone Corp. recently demonstrated its non-destructive

testing (NDT) capabilities by inspecting a 160-meter chimney at a thermal power

plant in Japan. The inspection was conducted using an ultrasonic testing (UT)

drone developed by Terra Drone group company Terra Inspectioneering.

A major component of the chimney inspection was to measure

the thickness of the steel plate in the chimney flue. Conventionally, this

would have been done manually by shutting down the facilities, putting up

temporary scaffolding, and having human inspectors climb the chimney.
