Although the procedure and policies might differ slightly for each company depending on their purpose, the overall practice is largely similar.
The most fundamental step of an inspection would be the visual check. This process is to determine if any form of deterioration has occurred on the surface of your asset of interest and the severity of damage if any.
If the wear and tear is at a minimal or an acceptable level, the assessment can continue with some minor polishing or repair on the surface.
At a higher scale, the inspection takes into account the safekeeping of the marine surroundings which includes the ecosystem of the area especially when it comes to underwater demolition as you can see from these underwater demolition facts. This is over and above ensuring your equipment’s reliability and the well-being of your workers.
In general, there are 3 main areas of any underwater inspection service:
- Maintaining a team of competent and experienced commercial divers and engineers
- Qualified to employ the use of not only the standard commercial equipments but also the sophisticated robots for more complicated appraisals
- Apply remedial actions on any damage or defects immediately upon the completion of the site’s examination.
