Cyberhawk has carried out work to inspect risers on offshore platforms for Dubai Petroleum.

Under a framework agreement, Cyberhawk inspected more than 350 risers on 63 offshore platforms, and produced over 90 detailed engineering inspection reports.

Risers are a difficult area of an offshore platform to inspect with traditional means; in the under deck and the splash zone, options for access such as abseiling or scaffolding are limited, extremely time consuming and expensive.

Using UAS as a scanning tool, the high-quality reports produced by the Cyberhawk team allowed the client to plan contact-based inspections or repairs. Additionally, now that a full inspection has been completed on all risers, defects can be tracked over time to understand their long-term degradation.

On the same project, an additional three elevated flare stacks and 24 bridges were inspected.
