Thermal Inspection for Underground Fires

Underground fires at landfill sites are more common than you might think and have the potential to be extremely dangerous.

If not dealt with quickly they will spread rapidly and become increasingly difficult to extinguish.

Traditional methods of detection are extremely time consuming, complex and expensive. They typically involve chartering a helicopter or private plane to survey the area. At Dronetec UK, our UAV technology can quickly and efficiently map out the whole site allowing thermographers to identify 'hot-spots' and pinpoint the centre of the fire. Our drones can be ready to fly within minutes of arrival on site. This speed is critical to containing the situation.
