When it comes to marine vessels, you get what you inspect! According to Alexander Tomchev of Cargill in Bulgaria, after 20 days in tropical waters, biofouling is present on a ship’s surface. Turbulent flow around a ship hull caused by barnacles, sea grass and other fouling ends up increasing fuel consumption. Inuktun has the solution with game-changing implications for the economics of marine transportation.
There is significant cost-savings potential of substituting amphibious robotic crawlers for human divers when it comes to hull inspections, cleaning and defouling. Even more so where it can mean avoiding excessive downtime or unwanted drydocking. Did you know that there’s a crawler out there that does a perfect job… above, below and at the waterline? Download Inuktun’s white paper on the MicroMag™ for remote inspection and cleaning of marine vessels to learn more.
See Spectrum 45™ footage from a MicroMag™ that was utilized by Can-Explore of Quebec City to perform a ship hull inspection in the St. Lawrence River just last week. You’ll notice the improved video image with the Helios operating in the turbid, murky high current. And when the details matter, Inuktun recommends the MaggHD™ for comprehensive remote visual inspection. Contact our team to learn more now!
