RIMS BV gains BV approval as service supplier of offshore drones

Robotics In Maintenance Strategies (RIMS BV) is the first company to receive an attestation from Bureau Veritas (BV) Marine & Offshore, as an approved service supplier via use of ‘Remote Inspection Techniques’ (drones). Drones will be used during surveys of hull structure of ships and mobile offshore units classed with BV.

RIMS has been selected as an approved service supplier for Bureau Veritas (BV) Marine & Offshore. This allows RIMS-supplied drones to be used during surveys of hull structure of ships and mobile offshore units.

RIMS are a global provider of high-tech, safe, autonomous, and sustainable surveying and maintenance solutions. The company supplies and provides services that aid with the replacement of old and expensive, slower, high-risk, and resource intensive maintenance activities, with new smarter drone and robotic technologies.

“To receive approval from Bureau Veritas is a real breakthrough for us in the shipping industry,” said  David Knukkel, CEO of RIMS BV. “To be acknowledged by one of the largest established and respected class societies shows that we are on the right track to deliver safe and approved drone surveys for the marine and offshore industries.”

It is anticipated that the use of drones to carry out inspections of enclosed spaces will not only reduce the time to carry out scheduled survey work but will improve visual records, while minimizing risk, bringing substantial benefits to owners, insurers and classification societies.
