ZALA AERO together with oil and gas company Gazprom tested new unmanned system for methane leaks detection.
The system is based on UAV ZALA-421-16E5 with a high-sensitivity gas detector onboard.
Methane leaks were simulated on the Gazprom facilities. The UAS calculated methane concentration and detected leaks locations from the height of 100 meters.
UAS ZALA 421-16E proved its efficiency and successfully completed the tests.
Application of unmanned aerial vehicles simplifies and reduces costs for methane leaks detection.
