ABS Certification for EM&I Innovative Robotic Inspection Methods
January 29th, 2018
Following extensive validations ABS have certified EM&I as a Recognized External Specialist for In Water ODIN® surveys, ODIN® Mooring Chain surveys, and NoMan® remote visual surveys of confined spaces which includes tanks.
ODIN methods reduce or eliminate the need for diver intervention which enhances safety and reduces costs while NoMan enables the general and close visual inspection of confined spaces including tanks and pressure vessels without the safety risk and costs associated with man entry.
Pat Lawless (CEO) said, “The formal certification by ABS and other major classification societies underscores the confidence that regulatory bodies and indeed our clients recognise in our world leading methods whose development has been encouraged by the HITS JIP (Hull Inspection Techniques and Strategy Joint Industry Project) which represents all facets of our industry”.
Danny Constantinis (Executive Chairman) commented, “Our leadership role in HITS and our continuing contribution to industry initiatives in the field of digitisation and robotics has focused our intensive R&D programme which is bringing a new order of safety and cost benefits to our clients”.
