Dam & Water Utility Inspections

For a decade, Proceanic has provided Hi-Spec Mini-ROV Inspection services to the offshore industry, delivering quality inspections on floating structures in extreme and harsh environments. Proceanic now offers the same reliable, cost effective and innovative inspection services onshore, to operators of dams, reservoirs, hydro-electric and other water facilities.

Visual inspection of Dam Walls, Concrete Structures, Tunnels, Gates, Penstocks, Foundation Rock, Water Conduit, Retention Structures and Storage Tanks can be carried out without the need for divers, avoiding related safety concerns and access limitations. Inspection for erosion, deformation, damage and debris can be performed cost effectively and quickly, without compromising inspection quality.

Proceanic ROV Teams deploy hi-spec Mini-ROV technology and tooling to inspect Dams and other water retention structures as well as City Municipal Water Utility distribution systems. We pride ourselves on being agile, mobile, responsive, knowledgeable and cost-effective, while delivering the highest quality inspection data.

Proceanic ROV inspections are backed by two decades of Engineering & Project Management experience (we design and build offshore floating systems). Our ROV track record is unmatched, with 160+ successful offshore Inspection Campaigns.

ROV teams typically include Naval Architects, Marine Engineers, Structural or Civil Engineers. As a result, our personnel understand what they are looking at and know what they are looking for.

We strive to thoroughly understand structures, integrity management, stakeholder needs and the environmental conditions involved with each project.

At Proceanic, our goal is to provide accurate, timely and critical information to protect asset integrity, through detailed, comprehensive and cost effective ROV inspections.

Our services improve safety and dramatically reduce risk to inspection personnel and the asset by keeping Divers out of the water while maintaining (and in many cases improving) inspection quality.

Integrity Management

Integrity management is not a new concept in the water retention industry. For many years now, the value of risk-based inspections has been understood. However, accomplishing these inspections can be a challenge, particularly when the areas to be inspected are difficult to access, underwater, complex geometry and covered in marine growth.

Proceanic recognizes the critical importance of inspection, maintenance and ongoing integrity management of assets, and the need for continuous observation in order to maintain that structural integrity, particularly on ageing Dams.

Our ROV Inspection and intervention services ensure accurate, detailed, timely, and inclusive information on each of your assets. By providing comprehensive, concise and documented Inspection findings, our ROV services allow clients to make informed decisions on Dam integrity management.

Dam Inspection

The Proceanic ROV Team, with its engineering background, has greatly broadened underwater inspection options by taking existing, proven ROV technology, integrating high specification and custom tooling, and developing progressive and novel methods and procedures to achieve underwater structural inspections that were previously not possible.

From FPSO to Drillship, from Semi-Submersible to TLP, to Spar, Proceanic has successfully inspected it all. Additionally, Proceanic has also been involved in the design, construction, installation and ongoing operations of these vessels. We know what we are looking at, we know what we are looking for!

Underwater Cleaning

Proceanic has developed and integrated tools and technology to safely and efficiently clean underwater portions of dams, hydro-electric stations and other water utility assets. Cleaning systems are based on cavitational cleaning, which removes debris and marine growth, without damage to coatings, concrete or structure. Cleaning services allow inspections to be performed in a timely and efficient manner, to Client and/or Regulatory Body satisfaction. Examples of cleaning capabilities include:

  • General Marine Growth Removal
  • Waterline Cleaning
  • Conduit Inspection & Cleaning
  • Grating Cleaning
  • Tunnel Inspection & Cleaning
  • Gate Inspection & Cleaning
Damage Inspections

From the proverbial “bump in the night” when there is a collision or an allision or an item is dropped onto sensitive structure, Mini-ROVs are the ideal tool for a quick, easy, safe deployment to establish an initial assessment of extent of damage.

To the catastrophic failure of a component or structure, Mini-ROVs can be deployed into hazardous, unstable environments without risk to life, whilst possibly providing urgent and critical feedback to first responders and incident investigators, seeking to mitigate further damages or loss of life.

Search / Rescue / Retrieval

The mobility and agility of Mini-ROVs means that teams can be mobilized anywhere in the world, quickly and effectively providing emergency search rescue and retrieval capabilities in the unfortunate event of loss of life or equipment.

We Understand You

We understand that UWILDs, ISIPs and other underwater inspections and interventions can be costly and intrusive to operators. Our job is to reduce that cost, limit or eliminate asset down-time and improve inspection quality and detail.
