Professional Helicopter Services provides aerial patrols for pipelines, power lines or any asset that has governmental, state, or local reporting requirements.
Aerial patrol of pipelines and/or powerlines is an effective means of rapidly covering large areas of pipeline/powerline assets.
The focus of any patrol can be tailored to address specific needs due to environmental circumstances or regulatory changes.
Often, patrols are conducted as a direct result of natural disasters such as floods, cyclones and earthquakes. In these cases, the point is to find damage quickly to direct repair activity, thus preventing further hazards.
Our personnel are trained to observe and report the following anomalies
- Damages on powerlines and conductors
- Pipeline leaks (dead vegetation, discoloration, etc.)
- Sunken backfill
- Exposed Pipe
- Land Erosion
