Bureau Veritas Romania is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Skyline Drones

Drone technology is proving itself to be a true game-changer in an increasing number of fields and industries. With this in mind, Bureau Veritas Romania and Skyline Drones have partnered in order to outgrow and outperform the limitations of traditional methods and deliver professional drone inspection and monitoring services.

With a set of common goals, this partnership will support the integration between our services to create the next generation of specialized drone inspection and monitoring services.

Together we offer alternatives to traditional, labor-intensive activities and address strategic and operational challenges. Drone inspections open new horizons, save time and effort, and show a high degree of accuracy.

With Skyline Drones’ state-of-the-art industrial-grade drones, know-how and certified pilots, and Bureau Veritas’ technical knowledge and experienced inspectors, together our services complete each other, and we can offer our clients:

  • Comprehensive professional solutions
  • Reduced inspection time by up to 90%
  • Reduced costs between 50% and 90%
  • Reduced downtime
  • Increased safety through limiting human intervention
  • Easy access at height, in confined and hard-to-reach spaces
  • Increased data quality and efficiency
  • Close-up imagery with a high level of detail

The introduction of new technologies in testing, inspection and certification activities is one of the strategic directions of global development for Bureau Veritas. We have seen a clear increase in drone visual inspections and monitoring in many industries where Bureau Veritas already offers other types of third-party services.

The partnership with Skyline Drones, one of the top companies in Romania in the field of UAV aerial scans, is a natural initiative through which we stay with our customers to whom, as they are accustomed, we offer innovative asset verification solutions, with increased efficiency, but with a reduction in costs and delivery time.

Bureau Veritas works with Skyline Drones in various types of operations, such as:

  • Ultrasonic Thickness Measurements (UTM) for NDT inspections in industrial areas;
  • Confined space inspections;
  • Indoor 360o virtual tours;
  • Infrastructure inspections, especially in hard-to-reach spaces;
  • Digital twins and 3D models for asset digitization and detailed analysis;
  • Large structure inspection, with visual and thermal identification of defects;
  • LiDAR measurements;
  • Site survey through aerial exploration and progress monitoring in construction.

Ongoing technical advances, make room for limitless opportunities for improvement when talking about drones.

Drone Inspection using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), is fast becoming the preferred method of visual inspection across a wide range of industries. Drone inspection is the safest alternative to any manned visual survey method and digitalized companies are beginning to realize and understand the benefits of including drone inspection within their annual budgets. I am delighted by this partnership with Bureau Veritas, and this is an exciting example  of what is possible when organizations with complementary skillsets and common vision come together.
