Technical approach and methodology

Our technically advanced methodology provides complete observation-class ROV mounted cavitation jet cleaning and non-destructive testing using AC Field Measurement and eddy current. We can complete inspections of subsea structures from a dedicated, custom-built, state of the art, self-sufficient containerised control station and workshop module.

The Focus Subsea inspection team, in conjunction with the relevant classification society, will identify the mandatory requirements for location specific cleaning, inspection, testing and reporting criteria.

We provide ROV specific inspection procedures for class review and engineering approval, then the attending class surveyor can witness real time video link visual and NDT data transmission from the comfort of our fully integrated control module, located on the deck of the rig.
