Underwater success for remote survey

By GeoConnexion - 2nd March 2021 - 08:24

Bureau Veritas (BV), a provider of testing, inspection, and certification, has successfully completed the proof-of-concept project for underwater remote surveys using the Seasam technology eco-system from Notilo Plus on a Corsica linea ship, the Mediterrannee. Efficient underwater inspection of shipping vessels is important for the industry as a substitute for docking surveys at agreed intervals or to inspect hull damage. BV has been evaluating opportunities to provide effective remote inspection services. Using the Seasam system, an in-water survey of a ship located in Marseille has been supervised from its head office in Paris. The Seasam drone, sensors, and control system with Notilo Plus software has successfully demonstrated innovative and enhanced capabilities as one of the possible alternatives to the traditional diver in-water survey.
