Maritime transport (or ocean transport) and fluvial transport, or more generally waterborne transport, is the transport of people (passengers) or goods (cargo) via waterways. Freight transport by sea has been widely used throughout recorded history. The advent of aviation has diminished the importance of sea travel for passengers, though it is still popular for short trips and pleasure cruises. Transport by water is cheaper than transport by air,[1] despite fluctuating exchange rates and a fee placed on top of freighting charges for carrier companies known as the currency adjustment factor


Hull inspections are important but how should they be carried out? Throughout the shipping industry, dry docking is most typically used for hull inspection purposes. Procedures enacted by regulatory bodies and companies are valid and in place to ensure that vessels are operating properly and safely. However, taking your vessel completely out of the water when it is not required can waste a lot of time and money. From a financial, structural, and inspection code point of view, it is important to inspect your hull between mandatory dry-dockings. With an underwater ROV, you can get eyes underwater quickly and inspect vessel hulls at a moment’s notice - without dry docking.

Services Include

-Save money and time by understanding what is happening under your vessel without diver intervention.

-Make the most of any necessary dive time by pre-inspecting with an underwater drone.

-Proactively manage your fuel efficiency by conducting regular ROV inspections of your hull to determine optimal cleaning and paint schedules.

-Completing regular hull inspections is one way to avoid damage and decay on the boat.

-Completing hull inspections can give insight as to whether or not the structure of your ship is compromised.

-Underwater vessel inspections confirm that your hull is clear of barnacles and other marine life.

-Provide ease of mind.

From shipping vessels to cruise lines, the ocean waterways are getting busier. Performing subsea inspections of these vessels is extremely important to ensure they remain functional on the waterways and continue to provide a safe means of transportation.

Biofouling is the “unwanted deposition and growth” of organisms that can occur on solid-liquid, solid-gas, and liquid-gas interfaces . It is a wide-ranging problem that can have negative consequences from very small to quite large scales.

· Measurement of wear down; · Propeller nut and propeller shaft threaded end; · Cone, key and keyway(keyed shafts), including examination by an efficient crack detection method of the after the end of the cylindrical part of the shaft and one-third of the length of the taper from the big end; · Where the propeller is fitted by a solid flanged coupling at the after the end of the shaft, non-destructive examination of the flange fillet area of the shaft; Propeller shaft bearing areas;
