Class Inspections

Our project managers, ROV teams and inspectors work with clients to plan and perform subsea inspection campaigns tailored to suit the specific class requirements of each vessel.

Working alongside class inspectors, we conduct general visual inspections (GVIs), close visual inspections (CVI) using high definition cameras, surface cleaning, ultrasonic thickness and cathodic protection non-destructive testing, sea-chest and penetration cameras for valve actuations, mooring and riser turret inspections, photogrammetry, laser scanning and 3D modelling during inspections.

The use of our specialised Mini ROV vessel inspection systems and methods provide a range of benefits for clients: 

  • Improved data – Advanced data collection and processing techniques are providing improved inspection and monitoring capabilities and ability to monitor fine scale changes over time
  • Rapid mobilisation - Equipment and personnel mobilisation on helicopter and commercial planes at short notice
  •  dive support vessels - Mini ROV deployment directly from FPSOs and platforms without need for dive support vessel
  • Minimal POB - Small teams resulting in minimal POB during inspection campaigns
  • No Divers or Confined Space Entries - Reduction or removal of need for commercial diving, manned entry and confined space entries
  • Minimised HSE Risk - Reduced health and safety risk  through elimination of high risk activities

We maintain excellent relationships with all classification societies and regularly provide demonstrations and presentations to update our clients and class representatives on recent advancements in class inspection technologies and methods.
