Asset Inspection


Fast, safe and cost effective water quality inspections identify key risks, help plan maintenance and drive better asset performance. Asset data is captured during planned shutdown using confined space entry or while the asset remains full and / or in service using dedicated potable water robotic equipment.

Pressure has never been higher on the water industry to improve water quality while also reducing overall cost. Key to this challenge is the ability to accurately prioritise investment. Our team can assist by providing standardised asset reports grading condition, all data is captured electronically and held centrally for later assessment.

Using HD cameras assets can be inspected while in operation, while fully loaded any stress related defects can be seen in their true state. The removal of often lengthy and costly isolation planning means that large numbers of assets can be inspected within a short period allowing investment prioritisation ahead of a proactive funding period.

Where assets are expected to be behaviour unusually or where a failure is suspected then the ROV can quickly investigate without the delay associated with drain-down methods. Where appropriate the ROV can be used to trace expected leakage route, DWI approved tracers can be injected at the point of suspected leakage while the asset is full and under full loading.
