Underwater examination of offshore units are required as part of special periodic surveys to verify structural integrity of the asset. This involves time and cost for mobilization of appropriate personnel to often hard to reach locations.
Today’s remote inspection capabilities allow live streaming of video feeds from the diver or ROV to onshore locations with the ability for project stakeholders to collaborate remotely during survey execution. This type of virtual operations, now available as part of the ABS Remote Survey program, enhances the class experience and enables a new way of delivering class surveys.
In this 30-minute webinar, Joseph Rousseau, Director of Global Offshore Exploration and Smarty Mathew John, Digital Transformation Program Manager, will present the latest approaches to maximize cost savings and improve safety with a remote underwater survey in lieu of drydocking (UWILD) on an offshore unit. We will also discuss the ABS process to request remote offshore UWILD surveys.
