Subsea Inspection & Survey

Geo Oceans integrates new camera, sensor and manipulator technology onto small, powerful and agile ROVs to expand their capabilities to include inspection and survey services that were traditionally completed by larger ROVs or divers.

The small ROVs are efficient to mobilise, can be manually deployed from small vessels or large FPSOs and can operate in challenging weather conditions.

We research and develop new technology, particularly subsea tools that can help us improve the accuracy of our data and extend the operational limits and service capabilities of small ROVs. The tools include visual and non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection sensors, cleaning equipment and manipulators to control the sensors and stabilise the ROV to the structure.


Our inspection services

• asset integrity inspections
• inspection for class
• metrology and damage assessment
• seabed scour monitoring
• structure cleaning
• non-destructive testing
• coating condition assessment
• 3D modelling of inspected objects

Data outputs

• high definition video
• high resolution still images
• survey positioning
• fine scale measurements
• area and volume calculations
• 3D point clouds, surfaces and images
