Bluestream and Skeye partner for offshore inspection servicesCompany News // August 31, 2017
Bluestream and Skeye BV in The Netherlands, an operator of unmanned aerial vehciles (UAVs) or drones have announced a partnership to provide visual inspection services and geographic data acquisition for offshore assets.
Den Helder-based Bluetsream can now provide clients with an inspection solution utilizing Skeye’s drones. The drones can access places that are difficult, expensive, dangerous, or impossible to approach using manned inspection teams. The drones are particularly suitable for live flare and vent stack, topside, splash zone and under deck inspections.
“Our professional rope access, diving and ROV inspection, repair and maintenance services combined with the Skeye UAV-based inspection services will provide a unique advantage for customer’s maintenance campaigns and projects. We are now tailored to meet the most challenging of customer needs,” said Bluestream's commercial manager, Anton Janssens.
“Not only does this high-grade inspection service allow a fast and efficient collection of extensive footage in a short amount of time, whilst the asset is still in production, it also improves the targeted delivery of rope access work. This enables subsea and topside inspection to be done by a single party, resulting in integrated reports of inspections done, creating added value for the customer.”
