Remote Inspection

Demand for digitally distanced surveys and inspections has escalated following the introduction of stringent global travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and unprecedented impacts on the oil price.

The provision of verification and certification services for topsides and subsea equipment is critical for essential components like risers, umbilicals, cables, lifting equipment, and workover systems, and in turn IVB’s clients have turned to us to look at alternatives to the usual verification methods.
