- This technology can be used to view areas that are difficult to access, increasing both the safety of personnel involved in inspections and efficiency.
- Cepsa remains committed to innovation and continuous improvement at the industrial facilities.
Cepsa's Inspections Area has incorporated the use of aerial and maritime drones at industrial plants as part of its process of continuous improvement, innovation and excellence for services.
Within the Digital Transformation and Technical Excellence Area of Cepsa's Technical Services, the robotization program is outstanding due to the benefits it brings to the processes and services performed by the plant inspections area. Cepsa has been using drones for some time to inspect flares, tanks, marine terminals, and general flights. The use of drones makes it possible to observe with a high level of detail the condition of different elements so that specific actions can be recommended to the Maintenance Area.
The audiovisual material created during these inspections makes it possible to confirm the condition of the facility, including areas that are inaccessible using normal means, thereby reducing the costs and risks of human involvement in this process. The positive results from implementing drones have led to the decision to continue working along this line to increase the capacity, quality, reliability, and safety of inspection services.
