Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. — Petrobras, more commonly known as simply Petrobras, is a semi-public Brazilian multinational corporation in the petroleum industry headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The company’s name translates to Brazilian Petroleum Corporation — Petrobras.

In order to continue improving safety and good pratices inside the company, every month they have a meeting to discuss about accidents that have occur over the month, this meeting is called “RAC de Melhores Práticas”.

This monthly meeting includes not only Petrobras personnel, but mainly offshore services providers in activity. Every current main subject is scheduled to be discussed at that meeting, as well as those actions taken and further improvements.

We are very proud to say that at this date, the XD4SOLUTIONS, by our CEO, Capt Pierre Verardi, was invited to join that meeting and to press the first presentation at that safety event, make a quick speaking about the drone inspections in confined areas with the use of the ELIOS platform. After the speech, himself, performed at short flight presentation.

There were many offshore companies presented like Etesco, Transocean, Ocyan, Constellation, Brasdrill, Sevan Drilling and Ensco. They were very impressed with this new technology for confined spaces and, how it can significantly increase workers safety, productivity, as well as lower downtime and costs of the asset to be inspected.
