ABU DHABI – ARIES oil field services claims to be the first contractor in the Middle East to be approved and certified by ABS to provide unmanned aerial vehicle remote inspection techniques for offshore installations and vessels.

ABS granted certification after witnessing demonstration surveys onboard ABS classed vessels.

Drones were used for external leg inspection of a mobile offshore drilling unit and internal condition assessments of tanks.

ABS’ surveyors certified that the live data captured as images and videos will assist efficient decisions during the execution of classification and statutory surveys.
