Expanding our drone capabilities
Key highlights
  • Ventia gains ReOC allowing us to fly larger drones
  • Drones used as tools to perform tasks faster, safer and more cost-effectively than before

 

We are proud to be the holder of the Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC)  for drones.

Five years ago it was unheard of to see a drone flying over a jobsite. Now our jobsites are regularly using drones as tools to perform tasks faster, safer and more cost-effectively than before.

There are countless potential applications for drones in our business. Currently we use drones for:

  • Aerial photography
  • Aerial videography
  • Water sampling
  • Aerial mapping by photogrammetry

Key benefits

  • Readily available
  • High quality, high resolution images
  • Cheaper than conventional aerial photography with a plane or helicopter
  • Low manpower and plant requirements
  • Able to access tight places and get closer to the ground
