Cyberhawk Innovations, the world leader in inspection and survey using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), has been certified as an External Specialist by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) in providing inspections for internal tanks using UAVs.
Achieving ABS recognition means that the data captured by Cyberhawk’s UAVs can now be used by ABS surveyors to make decisions affecting classification surveys of cargo oil tanks (COT) and other bulk storage tanks on vessels.
As part of the External Specialist certification procedure, Cyberhawk completed two internal tank inspections on an Aframax class oil tanker in the USA in collaboration with an ABS Surveyor.
The inspection took place in Portland, Oregon, where the Surveyor examined all safety and inspection processes required to accept Cyberhawk’s high quality inspection technique.
The two inspections were part of a larger project, involving a survey of all 14 COTs using a drone on a sister vessel. The project was completed in just six days by the Cyberhawk team.
Aside from significant time and efficiency savings, the use of UAVs by experienced operators means minimised risks to personnel, offering a safer, more economical solution for detailed structural inspections.
