Oceaneering launches digital asset inspection system

48049879013 4a04e511c6 zOceaneering International, an engineered service provider, has launched the digital asset inspection system Inform Inspect, which aims to streamline non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection management

The tablet-based technology equips technicians, supervisors and managers with the ability to deliver seamless, end-to-end inspection – from planning to review – with standardised data captured into a cloud-based system.

Information is instantly available for analysis, enabling more efficient on-site planning and personnel time optimisation. Hardware is rated for onshore and offshore applications and certified for use in hazardous areas.

Field trials have demonstrated conservative productivity gains of up to 30 per cent in end-to-end inspection times, and the speed and scope of the technology provide major safety benefits, ultimately enabling personnel to spend less time onsite in hazardous environments.

The software can also be integrated with a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) and integrity management systems to increase efficiencies and provide a holistic approach to inspection and integrity management.

Bill Boyle, senior vice-president for Asset Integrity, Oceaneering said, “Our Inform Inspect technology is transforming the way we plan, enact and measure inspection efficiencies. Our customers can compile, execute and review work scopes in real-time, significantly reducing end-to-end inspection turnaround. The system also provides a platform to pre-plan work, so that all activities that can be completed offsite, actually happen offsite.

This is what sets us apart. Our technology is market-leading, field-proven and provides the only global, integrated approach for inspection management to deliver inherent cost efficiencies and safety benefits. We already have an agreement in place with a global oil and gas operator, early evidence that our customers recognise the value that this new system brings.”

The Inform Inspect system is the first of a series of innovative solutions Oceaneering will launch under its Inform suite.

The technology will be available through Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity business, which provides integrity, management, analytics, maintenance and risk management, conventional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) and specialist inspection solutions.
