Vessel arrival inspection requirements vary by port and by region. Generally, when a ship arrives, documentation is required for the vessel and crew. An inspection of the cargo and confirmation of sealed discharge valves will also be undertaken.
Deploy a ROV to perform quick, safe and affordable hull inspections
Spot checking key areas of a vessel where invasive species or contraband may be easily hidden is an efficient way to quickly process vessels entering port. Areas such as bulbous bows, rudders or thruster openings are easily accessible to a Deep Trekker ROV. They can be quickly checked by one operator and images can be recorded for future documentation.
Deploying a Deep Trekker underwater drone won’t create an undue delay for a vessel entering port. With a 30 second set up and activation time, one operator can easily deploy the ROV overboard for inspections and then pilot it from the handheld controller. The internal batteries provide up to eight hours of inspection time, and with a 270-degree rotating camera - any port authority can efficiently ensure vessels transit safely through their harbor.

In addition to the added safety of a port security ROV from Deep Trekker, port authorities also have the opportunity to offer hull inspections as a service to the small and large vessels in their harbor. The condition of anti-fouling paint, potential hull damage that may require attention, or recovery of lost items are all great ways to offer a value-added service at your port.
