RoNik Inspectioneering has become a part of the Terra Drone group and will be renamed as Terra Inspectioneering, following the completion of an investment from Terra Drone Corporation, one of largest providers of industrial drone solutions in the world.
RoNik Inspectioneering, a leading Dutch company that performs visual and ultrasonic inspections using wireless robotics.
Under its new name, Terra Inspectioneering will focus on the inspection of industrial, hazardous, and enclosed spaces, such as storage tanks, boilers, super heaters, furnaces, stacks, pipelines and more.
RoNik has carved a unique niche in the industry by developing a propriety UT technology which makes ultrasonic thickness testing at hard-to-reach indoor places extremely easy. The use of drones for tank inspections not only eliminates the need to put humans in dangerous places, but it also reduces the time taken for inspection by 40 percent to 60 percent.
The data captured by RoNik’s patented UT drones is shared in the form of innovative cloud-based 3D models. These reports are fully compliant with storage tank industry inspection standards such as API-653 and EEMUA 159.
Toru Tokushige, CEO, Terra Drone Corporation, commented: “Oil and gas companies are fast realising how drones can be used to improve plant operation rates, save time, and reduce costs. By incorporating RoNik’s proven and reliable nondestructive testing technologies to the solution set we offer via Terra Drone’s global network of more than 25 countries, we will be able to cater to oil and gas companies in all parts of the world.”
