ABERDEEN, UK – Oceaneering International has introduced the Inform Inspect digital asset inspection system, designed to streamline non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection management.

The tablet-based technology is said to allow technicians, supervisors, and managers to provide seamless, full-scope inspection – from planning to review – via standardized data captured into a cloud-based system.

Information is made instantly available for analysis, which is said to improve planning and optimization of personnel time onsite.

Hardware is rated for onshore and offshore applications and certified for use in hazardous areas.

According to Oceaneering, field trials have proven productivity gains of up to 30% in inspection times.

The software can also be integrated with a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and integrity management systems to increase efficiencies.

Bill Boyle, senior vice president for Asset Integrity, Oceaneering said: “Our Inform Inspect technology is transforming the way we plan, enact, and measure inspection efficiencies.

“Our customers can compile, execute, and review work scopes in real time, significantly reducing end-to-end inspection turnaround. The system also provides a platform to pre-plan work, so that all activities that can be completed offsite, actually happen offsite.”
