RIMS offers offshore UAV inspections

15th November 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Netherlands-based Robotica in Maintenance Strategies (RIMS) has launched inspections services for the maritime and offshore industry using the Elios UAV, the company announced on 9 November 2016.

RIMS is a provider of autonomous, sustainable surveying and maintenance solutions using UAVs and robotics.

The services will target maintenance activities in enclosed spaces in the maritime and offshore industry in order to increase safety and cost-efficiency. 

The new service was launched following successful tests by RIMS along with partners Rotterdam Offshore Group, Rolldock and Flyability onboard the Dutch heavy lift vessel Rolldock Sky. The tests evaluated whether the UAV's controls and data transfer would operate correctly within the enclosed space of a duct keel or ballast tank.

The Elios UAV is manufactured by Flyability, and has a protective cage and capabilities that make it suitable for inspection operations within enclosed areas.
