Oceaneering launches digital asset inspection system
ABERDEEN -- Oceaneering International, Inc., has launched the Inform Inspect digital asset inspection system, which aims to streamline non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection management.
The tablet-based technology equips technicians, supervisors and managers with the ability to deliver seamless, end-to-end inspection – from planning to review – with standardized data captured into a cloud-based system. Information is instantly available for analysis, enabling more effective planning and optimization of personnel time onsite. Hardware is rated for onshore and offshore applications and is certified for use in hazardous areas.
Field trials have demonstrated conservative productivity gains of up to 30% in end-to-end inspection times, and the speed and scope of the technology provides major safety benefits, ultimately enabling personnel to spend less time onsite in hazardous environments. The software can also be integrated with a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and integrity management systems to increase efficiencies and provide a holistic approach to inspection and integrity management.
The Inform Inspect system is the first of a series of innovative solutions Oceaneering will launch under its Inform suite.
The technology will be available through Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity business, which provides integrity, management, analytics, maintenance and risk management, conventional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) and specialist inspection solutions.
