KR launches drone surveys

The Korean Register (KR) has begun conducting inspection services using drones, following the completion of a collaboration and research project conducted with the University of Gyeongnam Geochang.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The inspections will be carried out using camera-equipped drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) and underwater drones (remotely operated vehicles) by registered service suppliers, including the University of Gyeongnam Geochang. The two organisations also plan to work together on future technological developments.

“We are delighted to announce that we can now offer full ship inspection services with camera-equipped drones, employing the very latest technology,” said Lee Jeong-kie, chairman and CEO of KR.

“This development will be a significant advantage for our customers, saving their time and capital resources as well as increasing efficiency and safety at the worksite, which I hope will in turn improve competitiveness across the shipping industry.”

“This is just the latest development in KR’s continuous efforts to identify and develop new practical ways to meet our clients’ needs, and to enhance their businesses prosperity.”{/mprestriction}
