Inspection, repair and maintenance

As industry leader in ROV IRM (inspection, repair and maintenance), Fugro offers an extensive range of pipeline, subsea structure, diverless inspection and subsea engineering services in water depths up to 4,000 metres.

Our modern fleet of over 150 electric and hydraulic powered inspection class and work class ROVs can be operated permanently from our DP2 vessels or as required from your own vessel or offshore structure.

For pipeline inspection our sensors can be mounted on our ROVs or towed conventionally from one of our vessels.

Our integrated solutions incorporate inspection engineering and software capabilities that can be tailored to your specific needs:

  • Subsea video and data acquisition
  • Repair and Maintenance planning and execution
  • Data management and hosting

Acquired data can be turned into information listings that meet specific requirements, allowing year-on-year comparisons and submissions to regulatory authorities. Listings can include key information such as length (start and end) of span and any apparent change of position.

Our range of IRM services includes:

  • Asset integrity inspections using ROV or diving
  • Pipeline inspections using ROV, ROTV or AUV
  • Seabed site inspections
  • Cathodic protection surveys
  • Flooded member inspections
