Cyberhawk completes offshore ROAV inspection in North America

Cyberhawk Innovations has completed an offshore ROAV inspection in North America for one of the world’s largest oil & gas supermajors.

Cyberhawk Innovations, the world leader in aerial inspection using Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicles (ROAV), also referred to as drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), has completed an offshore ROAV inspection in North America for one of the world’s largest oil and gas supermajors.

The multiple workscope project was completed over the course of two weeks in Newfoundland, Canada.

Cyberhawk used ROAVs to inspect the live flare, the platform underdeck and the roof of the giant concrete gravity base, and conduct numerous thermal surveys in order to maximise the mobilisation. A back log of complex inspection and survey work was competed whilst the Cyberhawk team was on the platform.

ROAVs were opted as the preferred method of inspection for this project, primarily to reduce safety risks posed to personnel in the notoriously hazardous, foggy conditions present off the east coast of Canada.

Stringent HSE regulations imposed mean that frequent inspection of offshore assets is required, in order to verify the integrity of the asset and maintain an operating licence. Due to the short weather windows available, the speed of ROAV inspection and the ability to capture large amounts of data in a short time presented a significant advantage.

Headquartered in Livingston, Scotland, and with bases in the Middle East and SE Asia, Cyberhawk carried out the very first ROAV industrial inspection in 2009 and since then, has completed more than 25 world firsts to date, with blue-chip customers in more than 20 countries on four continents.
