CHESHIRE, UK – The EM&I Group has won a contract to conduct an underwater inspection in lieu of drydocking (UWILD), using EM&I’s ODIN methodology on FPUs in Brazil.

The ODIN method has four key stages, including an engineering plan development, structural inspection of external features from within the hull, a mini ROV hull survey, and an isolation valve inspection by inserting a specialized camera into the pipe.

EM&I says ODIN requires fewer persons on board (POB) compared to an equivalent conventional diver-based surveys.
