The partnership will provide clients in the Offshore and Marine sector with a step change in the way inspections – such as Dropped Object Surveys – can be performed on essential but hard to access parts of their vessels.
The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or ‘drones’) makes it possible to simultaneously improve safety, reduce cost – often by more than 80% – and obtain better quality inspection information. Combining this capability with OTD’s unrivalled engineering expertise and experience in the field of offshore drilling and support vessels means that clients are also assured of a swift analysis and resolution for any findings that could result from these inspections.
By bringing together the Health and Safety best practices from the Oil and Gas industry with the operational procedures from commercial aviation, Sky-Futures has built a track-record of safe and consistent operations that bring true value to clients in even the harshest of offshore environments. Sky-Futures uses sophisticated drone inspection software to automate the analysis of the HD Video, still and thermal data its drones gather, helping to identify potential problems on an asset. Clients can access the images and analysis through a cloud-hosted portal, together with expert input from OTD’s experienced engineers.
