Terra Inspectioneering and Sitech Services entered into a service level agreement (SLA) for the next three years for the deployment of robotic and drone inspection technology at Chemelot in the Netherlands.

Chemelot is a multi-user chemical/industrial site of over 800 hectares in Limburg. Terra Inspectioneering will work with Sitech to conduct further research, development, and demonstrations using inspections robotics with different inspection instruments at the Chemelot site.

Drones and robotics help to create a safer and more environmentally friendly work environment, with higher uptimes and lowercosts. Workers no longer need to enter confined spaces or work at heights, and inspection intervals can be extended. Drones offer real-time data gathering for risk-based inspections (RBIs), predicting the maximum lifetime of assets.

‘Innovative inspections using robots and drones are becoming more and more accepted as an accredited inspection tool, replacing people entering confined spaces. Sitech’s engineers offer their knowledge and experience in what to inspect, where, using what methodology. We welcome Terra Inspectioneering as a preferred supplier in the field of supportive tooling,’ says Sitech’s Wilbert Derks.
