Cyberhawk Innovations, a provider of industrial drone inspections, says it has been shortlisted for this year’s Offshore Achievement Awards in the safety innovations category.
Now it its 30th year, the Offshore Achievement Awards recognizes companies across the U.K. offshore industry. Winners will be announced on March 17 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in Scotland.
Cyberhawk is headquartered in Livingston, Scotland, and has bases in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The company, with customers in more than 20 countries on four continents, says it operates in the renewable energy, onshore and offshore oil and gas, utilities, and rail sectors.
Using remotely operated aerial vehicles (ROAVs) to conduct close-up inspections, Cyberhawk mobilizes a two-man team, comprising a pilot and an inspection engineer.
“Cyberhawk conducted the very first ROAV industrial inspection in 2010 and since then has built up an unrivaled track record in oil and gas. Following the launch of a new wind turbine inspection service last year, we hope to see this success replicated within the renewables sector,” says Philip Buchan, commercial director at Cyberhawk. “The safety benefits and efficiencies which ROAVs bring to the offshore energy sector are huge, with cost savings into millions of pounds available. We are pleased to have these benefits recognized by the industry and look forward to the ceremony in March.”
