Remote tank inspection system launched

Martek Marine has launched its new Shipboard Unmanned Inspection of Tanks Solution (SUITS), a system combining enclosed space drone technology and VR software which can be used to remotely conduct tank inspections.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}SUITS allows the operator to remotely control a collision tolerant drone via a control console and video screen as it enters confined spaces, eliminating the need for surveyors and crew members to enter hazardous spaces on board.

Martek says that the product has been developed to assist ship managers fulfilling their ALARP (As Low as Reasonably Practicable) obligations when it comes to safety risks in the workplace.

“SUITS will revolutionise confined space inspection to make operations safer, faster and, ultimately, cheaper,” said Paul Luen, Martek Marine CEO.{/mprestriction}
