MIS is approved to use drones for
close-up survey by DNV-GL, LR and NKK. Our Inspectors have years of experience undertaking structural surveys and are trained to CAA (UK) and Flyability standards.
We use Elios 2 drones for our ship inspections, which often make
large savings for operators. The manufacturer of these drones, Flyability, recently published an
article about one of our inspections. The UAV's 4K camera provides exceptional
image quality, allowing defects and cracks to be identified with a high degree of accuracy and confidence. This high resolution data is then analysed and presented in a comprehensive report, tailored
to the requirements of the client.
Drone surveys are completed inside a ship’s ballast /
cargo tanks; delivering close-up structural assessments. This reduces reliance on costly and time consuming forms of survey preparation such as staging and scaffolding. In addition to the favourable
cost and time implications passed on to the ship owners, it also greatly improves safety for the inspectors. We also inspect jack-up rigs for class close-up surveys.
Marine Inspection Services is currently developing a way
to use a drone to perform thickness measurements.
In addition to performing close-up
surveys for marine assets, we have an expanded operation offering inspection services to a range of installations. For more on the adaptablility of our drone operation, you can visit Drone Inspection Services.
