What are hull inspections?

When a ship comes in for a routine inspection or requires a check before entering a country the hull is checked to ensure there is no damage or anything illegal attached to it. This is usually done with divers, taking hours, and costing a lot of money.

How do hull inspections work?

  1. The inspection crew will drive out to the ship and place the ROV into the water.
  2. The operator will then drive the subsea ROV around and under the hull of the ship capturing photos and video along the way.
  3. This footage is inspected during the operation and afterwards to ensure nothing is missed. The drone is washed off and packed away for next time.

Benefits of using Subsea ROVs

  • Huge cost savings as people don't need to be sent underneath a ship and even possibly removed from the water.
  • People will no longer need to setup, undergo training, and do the dangerous work saving time in the process.
