UTM & Hull Close Up Surveys with Platform or Rope Access

Eliminate cost for staging or rafting with our patented inspection method

Using Platform instead of Rafting or Staging for C.A.P.

Most IACS classification societies do not accept cargo tank close up surveys during CAP with remote survey technics, i.e, with the use of rope access, if coating is not in good condition or defects are found. They require surveyor to perform close up survey.

Some oil majors do to accept the complete substitution of close up survey with remote survey technics during CAP surveys, even if classification society accepts during class renewal. Failure to comply with above requirements can result to cancelation of employment by said oil majors.

Our company invented a method to bring surveyor to the under deck structure using a specially designed platform, giving solution to above problem.

Above method has been patented by ANCO Maritime Activities Ltd to over 40 countries world wide.

-- Above method is an alternative to staging or rafting at a fraction of the cost.
-- It is faster than staging or rafting. Close up survey can be performed during cleaning cargo tanks, prior to entering ship yard.
-- In many occasions shipyards do not have promptly available stagings to provide vessel during close up surveys, resulting to delays.
-- Above novel inspection method has been accepted by all major IACS clarification societies.
-- The service is offered world wide.
