Inuktun Sighting #104: VT100 Vertical Crawler™ rises up to oil and gas inspection challenges


Today’s #InuktunInTheWild sighting is courtesy of OE (Offshore Engineer), a digital publication serving the global offshore industry. Inuktun’s VT100 Vertical Crawler™ was spotted alongside Inuktun Europe’s Director, Brian Storie, in an article discussing ‘rise of the robot in offshore operations’.

It’s a trend that anyone plugged into the industry has already started to recognize: the oil and gas trade have embraced robots for remote visual inspection (RVI) and remotely operated tooling. From upstream to downstream, onshore or offshore, and virtually everywhere you need to go, IM3™ (Inuktun Multi-Mission Modular) technology is the solution for some of the toughest remote inspection challenges.

Inuktun has been providing cameras and crawlers for the inspection of topside, subsea and difficult confined spaces for almost 30 years. The VT100 Vertical Crawler™ is a prime example of one of our extremely durable and fully submersible OnDemand Specialty Systems; it can easily navigate multiple bends and vertical pipe segments commonly found in the capital assets and infrastructure of land-based or offshore processing plants. Its big brother, the VT150 Vertical Crawler™ was just featured in this #InuktunInTheWild sighting.

No stranger to the oil and gas sector, our IM3™ technology continues to be spotted performing structural integrity assessments. RVI of plant and equipment is about maximizing up time, ensuring operational safety and minimizing revenue loss.
