offshore inspections

    Safety and maintenance considerations for offshore structures require a reliability of inspection techniques, this is where the Mini and Micro ROV system comes into it's own. Fatigue or wear cracks can grow under the influence of wind and wave loading and can lead to serious weakness in a structure if allowed to progress without any action being taken. In the first instance these cracks must be detected before they reach a size which may lead to this structural deterioration. Inspection reliability is crucial and the proven track record of micro ROV's in reaching these often hard to get to spots is unequalled.
      The micro ROV is showing it's value particularly for FPSO operators, where the system can be multi-functional, inspecting mooring chains, turret bearings, or indeed the ballast tanks or seawater gratings all at a fraction of teh cost or potential downtime of traditional techniques.
