ROV Hull Surveys

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

There are many safety advantages that ROVs can provide over divers. This short article will point the advantages of ROVs over human divers:

Hull ROV Surveys
  • Ship hull inspections can be dangerous for divers because a port is a very dangerous place.
  • Currents can move diver to unsafe places during Inspections.
  • Rapid deployment
  • Less permits and safety considerations pre-launch
  • 24/7 operations without restrictions.
  • No restriction depth (within manufacture limits)

ROV on Aquaculture Industry

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Since 1961 the Fish consumption has increased, twice as high as the population, according to http://www.fao.org/.

The statistics show that aquaculture has its highest peak about 2016 with 171 million tonnes production, so, fish farming has become one of the major contributors to the world food providers, here a few benefits of aquaculture:

  • Increased production of food for human consumption.
  • Substitution of import by local production.
  • High-efficiency protein production.
  • Creation of employment, especially in rural areas.
  • Environmental Friendly.

As the fish demands increase, the need for efficient managing technics is getting higher. Robotics and remotely operated vehicles are playing a great role in this industry, here below some of the benefits using ROVs on aquaculture:

Species Monitoring:

Delta ROV allows fish farming operators to monitor conditions, growth, behavior, and health of the fish stock, with gripper and manipulators ROV can recover dead fishes, samples, etc.

Gear monitoring:

In order to monitor (Nets, Filters, buoys, anchors) and comply with regulatory requirements and monitoring harmful species (sharks, sealions) out of the farm, Delta ROV is ready to operate 24/7 on the fish farms.

With the usage of ROVs, operators can develop methods for increasing efficiency and safety on Aquaculture industry.

Thermo Inspection with Drones

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Thermo cameras allow us to see infrared and thermal energy that is always around us.

Visible Light It is like the tip of the Iceberg, with our eye we just see around 2.5% of the available out there.

We don’t perceive infrared (thermal energy) as they are no visible for our eye, as the spectrum  that we eye can detect is very limited.

Infrared has about 30% of the available light spectrum, see image below:

In simple words, the main differences between visible Light and Thermo Energy:

  • Our eye can see what is reflected from the surface.
  • Thermo energy capture emissivity and reflections.
  • Our eye can see through a glass.
  • Thermo energy cannot pass through glass.

It is very important to understand that Thermo Images are just for Surfaces, It doesn’t penetrate the objects neither bodies.

Every surface has different emissivity, depending on their surfaces.

Shiny surcafes has high reflectivity and low emissivity

Dark (opaque) surfaces has low reflectivity by high Emissivity

In the picture below can be noticed that emissivity is affected by surface colors.

In the Solar Panel generations business, Thermo inspection has a great role.

The more energy the panel absorb, the more efficient it is.

According to statistical analysis from various thermo experts, performing regular Thermo inspections can help to reduce energy loss by 15%, due to Broken cells, dust, and dirt.

As a bonus, we have included the emissivity tables we use for our inspections:

WHY TO USE MARINE SURVEYORS?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized
Very often we get asked about boat surveys and what are the benefits of doing so, this week we are going to discuss details on the importance of marine surveys.

What is a Marine Survey?

it is a comprehensive check-up for boats, designed to identify existing problems, point out areas to improve, and give a detailed picture of the overall health of the vessel.

The two major reasons to hire a Marine Surveyor are:

1 Get an Unbiassed Assessment

When you are buying a boat, especially second-hand, the current owner may not be aware of any existing problems, if there is any, This is when a marine survey is very important before settlement.

During a repurchase survey the marine surveyor has the opportunity to assess all aspects of the vessel:

  • Structural
  • Mechanical Components
  • Rigging
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical Systems
  • Hull Planking
  • Propulsion System

As a result, the surveyor submits a report, with recommendations and a conclusion, that can help the price negotiation and repairs needed.

2 Get Profesional Valuation

Many marine underwriters (insurers), require a complete survey to be completed prior they will ensure a pre-owned vessel.

A professional marine surveyor will inform whether any repair needed to be completed and the cost of each repair accurately, this information is vital and can be used to determine if the boat is a good value and what is estimated provision in years ahead for upkeep.

Buying a boat is a big step, and a huge investment, a Surveyor will be your best advisor during this process.

EL PRINCIPAL OBJETIVO DE TODA INVESTIGACIÓN CONSISTE EN IDENTIFICAR LAS CAUSAS

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

El principal objetivo de toda investigación consiste en identificar las causas de los siniestros, con la finalidad de poder emitir recomendaciones tendentes a evitar que vuelvan a suceder. Nunca se ha de tratar de buscar culpabilidades.

Asimismo, resulta de máxima importancia la cooperación y colaboración de todas las partes involucradas, Armadores, Dueños de buques, Estados Ribereños, Estados de Abanderamiento, Gente de mar, etc. con la finalidad de garantizar la trasparencia y veracidad de la información obtenida y, con ella, poder esclarecer las verdaderas causas del incidente.
