Underwater inspections with ROV, underwater robots or underwater drones

Our low countries have many underwater structures such as quays, foundations, water tanks, pipelines, ducts and others. We also have several world ports where many ships pass. Visual inspection and assessment provides insight, but requires a considerable investment in time and money. An underwater drone offers a solution and carries out underwater inspections. No costly, risky dive teams required anymore. Fast and reliable results.

When compared to dive teams and work class ROVs, our clients have experienced cost savings of up to 60%.
Our micro/mini ROV is an (unmanned) underwater drone that executes visual underwater inspections at a depth of up to 150 m.
From a research vessel or quay, the micro ROV is steered by means of a hand console. The performed operations can be followed on a secondary screen.
Our reporting software supplies the client with a full detailed survey record.

We are approved by RINA, Bureau Veritas, Lloyd's Register and ABS to perform remotely operated inspections under water for:

  • offshore windturbine - foundation inspections from the inside and outside
  • Under Water Inspection in Lieu of Dry-docking (UWILD) on pontoons.
  • ballast tank inspections with the vessel in operation
  • freshwater tank inspections
  • quay inspections
  • reservoir inspections
  • pipe line inspections
  • oceanography , seabed inspections, oil spills monitoring
  • ship’s hull inspection for drugs packages
  • fishing industry surveys, fish farming cages surveys – mussel and oyster farms
  • fouling inspection of the ship’s hull
  • damage inspection of the ship’s hull
  • touchdown monitoring (TDM)

Micro or mini ROVs are not toys but real vehicles designed and built to the same criteria as its larger counterparts.
They are versatile, able to work in water depths up to 150m and being very lightweight. They can never cause damage to subsea structures, people or equipment.
