ROV Inspection with SAAM Towage Canada
"We use our ROVs for scheduled underwater inspections of vessels to monitor the underwater condition of components and structures,” explained Stuart. “We also use them for quick inspections of vessels’ underwater components - lots of debris exists on the West Coast so it is not uncommon to strike logs sitting just below the surface."
Stuart Jones, SAAM Towage
UWILD or underwater inspections in lieu of divers are critical for maintaining vessels safely and efficiently. The following checklist outlines what submerged areas and components of a vessel should be inspected by an ROV. Operators are looking for defects, scratches, discolourations, dents and any other imperfections.
By piloting the ROV from the surface to underneath a ship’s hull, Chugoku is able to inspect the bottom of the vessel from underwater, without drydocking. Chugoku then creates a visual report, including photos from the ROV’s camera, to show the condition of the hull and any areas which might require service or painting.
