Staff reporter

The joint venture between the two companies, Terra Drone Ventus, will provide inspection and survey solutions to industries such as oil and gas, power, renewables and mining across North America.

This will be one through its three branches in Houston, Texas, in the US; and Calgary, Alberta, and Lethbridge, Alberta, in Canada.

The newly formed Terra Drone Ventus will offer beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) inspection services using Terra Drone group company C-Astral's drones. It will also leverage the proprietary UT drones of Terra Inspectioneering (formerly RoNik Inspectioneering) for wall-thickness measurements and Ventus' patented gas-detection sensors to provide solutions for gas-leak detection and inspection of oil and gas assets.

Terra Drone has more than 25 companies and technology partners in its global network, including investments in Kazakh company KazUAV and European drone service provider Skeye over last 12 months.
