Qatar Shipyard Receives Remote Survey Approval From ABS

47

As part of a pioneering joint development project (JDP), ABS approved a range of ship repair and retrofit work processes for remote survey at Qatar Shipyard and Technology Solutions.

Remote survey techniques

ABS tested, validated and approved remote survey techniques at Qatar Shipyard and Technology Solutions for a number of survey tasks which included rudder clearance inspection; stern tube weardown inspection; and rudder plug opening inspection.

It is the culmination of the JDP, which explored how techniques developed by ABS for its industry leading program of remote survey of vessels in service can optimize scheduling and minimize downtime for the shipyard, vessels and ABS surveyors.

ABS is leading the way forward in applying technologies such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), crawlers, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and wearable technologies to augment traditional class-related surveys and inspections.
