Terra Drone Corporation has completed its investment in RoNik Inspectioneering, a Dutch company that performs visual and ultrasonic inspections using wireless robotics.
With the investment, RoNik Inspectioneering becomes a part of the Terra Drone group and gets renamed as Terra Inspectioneering.
The company will focus on non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection services of industrial, hazardous, and enclosed spaces, such as storage tanks, boilers, superheaters, furnaces, stacks, pipelines, and more.
Marien van den Hoek, CCO and co-founder of RoNik, commented: “The timing is perfect for us to have a joint venture with Terra Drone. The deployment of our technology via Terra Drone’s global network will create unprecedented market growth for all our group companies.”
There will also be a dedicated focus on the oil and gas industry across the globe.

By incorporating RoNik’s proven and reliable non-destructive testing (NDT) technologies and inspection services to the solution set we offer via Terra Drone’s global network of more than 25 countries, we will be able to cater to oil and gas companies in all parts of the world.”
