To inspect the hull, thrusters, propellers or anodes of ships in port, Woell Marine relies on innovative underwater drones (ROV) from leading manufacturer Blueye Robotics. These ROVs are equipped with a special full HD camera that delivers high-resolution images that provide information about a possible need for maintenance or repair. This type of inspection offers the possibility to stream the high resulution video recordings and images live, so all stakeholders have immediate access to the data, no matter where they are in the world.
Where ROVs can be used, they offer great advantages over divers. It is more flexible, faster and also more cost-efficient, as the use of divers is no longer necessary. All that is needed is an operator who controls the drone remotely. The use of ROVs is also suitable for the cost-optimised inspection of canals, port infrastructure or buildings whose foundations are underwater, such as storage facilities or warehouses in the port area.
Good to know: Woell Marine obtains permission to use the underwater drone for every inspection. You don’t have to worry about anything, but you benefit from qualified results for a quick condition assessment. We look forward to your enquiry!
