Albion Marine’s R&D team has come up with a unique way to carry out certain survey and/or inspection requirements using a purpose-built drone base. This drone utilization is a highly sophisticated, safe, efficient, and cost-effective approach.
The many advantages of using a drone include:
• Safety: Inspectors remain a safe distance while getting a close-up camera view.
• Prevention: The relative low cost of drone inspections is prompting many companies to use them to do inspections more often to detect potential issues earlier and avoid expensive repairs.
• Data: The archivable data obtained by a drone provides a meticulous record of a major asset’s condition over time.
• Recompense: Using a drone to assess the condition of a damaged or dysfunctional asset can speed up the payment of a liability insurance claim and reduce any related costly downtime.
Condition Assessment Survey
• A precise, reliable, intuitive drone inspection of interior spaces
• Real-time HD feed to the surveyor or the ship owner
• A spherical carbon-fiber cage that protects the drone propellers to facilitate confined-area use
• Repeatedly tested reliability in terms of capability to pass through vessel portholes
• Photogrammetry software for a 3D imaging option
• Combined use with LIDAR V1 & HF1 technology for on-board processing and real-time analysis
• Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) that facilitates accurate 3D mapping in GPS-denied environments, such as within interior spaces, underground, or near large structures.
• 3D modelling of the inspected space
• Locating, quantifying, and measuring faults precisely
• A simpler way to spot faults than numerous time-consuming photo comparisons with an internal structures map
• Time and project cost savings
• Easier volume and dimensional calculations
Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM Gauging)
• Spot thickness readings
• A-scan readings at a target position with 5-centimetre precision in terms of diameter
• Real-time waveform input to a landside inspector
• UT readings with 0.01-mm resolution and a measurable thickness range of 1 mm to 635 mm
• Capability to measure along curved surfaces
• Readings without the need of a GPS signal
Albion Marine Solutions can provide UTM gauging for ships, storage tanks, cranes, offshore platforms, wind turbines, and bridges.Download Flyer

A digital twin is a digital representation of a physical entity or framework. Data can be analyzed, and systems can be monitored by combining the virtual and physical worlds in simulations to avoid unintended consequences, reduce downtime, discover new opportunities, and even plan for the future. The technology underlying digital twins has evolved to include large objects such as machinery, buildings, and even ships.
Benefits of the Digital Twin in Shipping
1. Fleet Optimization Through Virtual Ship Control System Transition
2. Improving Port and Terminal Operations
3. Situational awareness in terms of operational parameters
4. Supply Chain Optimization from Start to Finish
5. Increased Security Ensures Safety
